That if he prefers Real Madrid, that in the Premier League they would pay him more or that if he has a verbal agreement with FC Barcelona, the case of the Norwegian striker is the ‘soap opera’ of 2022. And the last episode about his future has co-starred in none other than Joan Laporta, president of the Barça club.
On the occasion of the participation of the Catalans in the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, where Xavi’s cast fell in the semifinals 3-2 against Real Madrid, laporta He was in Riyadh and there he met several Blaugrana fans. Though he had a funny conversation with one of them.
A fan approached the concentration hotel of the Barcelona and when he saw Laporta, he did not hesitate to ask him to sign Haland for the next season. The boss culé pulled irony to answer: “Who is Haland?“, He said.
“We love Haaland. We want Haaland.” shouted the azulgrana fan. To which Laporta replied: “Whom?”. The fan immediately replied, understanding the president’s joke: “A Dortmund player”. Laporta then stated: “That boy is a very good player, very good player.”
The general director of Mediapro, Jaume Roures, believes that the Barcelona institution could hit the ‘bombshell’ with the sale of a couple of assets.
In an extensive interview with Radio Marca, the multimillionaire Spanish businessman and former endorsement of Joan Laporta to become president of the Barcelona, stated that Barcelona can undertake the signing of the Dortmund striker with the sale of one or two members of its squad.
“I think he can do one or two asset sales that would allow him to sign Haaland, or whoever. Another thing is the offers that he has on the table and that the club considers them acceptable but he has the possibility of selling assets to be able to make big signingsRoures said.
The specialized portal ‘Transfermarkt.de’ estimates the value of the player at 150 million euros (170 million dollars), although it will be the market and its laws of supply and demand that set the final price.
