This week, Erling Haaland, Barça’s big target for 2022, saw his agent make a crazy statement about the future of his jewel.
Barça Mercato: Raiola reveals the 4 future clubs of Haaland
As usual, the sulphurous businessman Mino Raiola, known for being the agent of many soccer stars, did not make any tongue in cheek this week concerning his Norwegian colt Erling Haaland. Courted by almost all the big clubs in Europe, the Borussia Dortmund striker leaves doubt as to his favourite destination, nevertheless, his Italian representative gave him several clues.
Interviewed by the media Sport1, Raiola revealed that 4 clubs that the serial striker of 21 could join next summer, among them, not PSG but Barça, Real Madrid, Bayern and Manchester City “Erling Haaland will go to the next step. Real Madrid, Bayern, Barca and City are the big clubs he can join. When? Maybe this summer, maybe the next. But there is a good chance it will be THIS summer. “. A real bomb dropped by the 54-year-old businessman who through this statement, confirms the possibility of an arrival of Haaland at Barcelona.
A destination that is unusual, to say the least, when you know the financial difficulties that the Blaugrana are subject to since Bartomeu’s mandate. Nevertheless, despite a debt estimated at more than 1.3 billion euros, Barça intends to save money to propose an offer and a salary that meets the requirements of the player. The only drawback is that the Norwegian would only come to Catalonia if the club qualified for the Champions League, a complicated condition for Xavi and his men who are currently stagnating in 7th place in La Liga. Joan Laporta will still be able to count on the very good relationship with the agent of the BVB striker.
The situation of Pogba mentioned
In this interview, Raiola also discusses the future of another of his protégés, the French midfielder Paul Pogba. At the end of his contract next June at Manchester United, the 2018 World Cup winner has still not agreed an extension with the Red Devils and seems to be getting closer to a departure in 2022. Courted by PSG, Barcelona, Juve and Real Madrid, La Pioche should animate the next summer mercato. His agent has also returned to the strong competition around his player “We have many offers for Pogba, including even an extension at United, we will see what is best for him. “. In the wake, the businessman refuted any interest from Bayern Munich “Pogba at Bayern? Impossible, they do not pay that kind of salary. “.
