In the event of a departure of Kylian Mbappe, PSG has positioned itself on the striker of Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland. And Leonardo could well have his chance in this case.
One less XXL competitor in the race for Haaland

Especially since Real Madrid and Barcelona are the favorites in this case. The 21-year-old Norwegian international having a preference for the Spanish championship.
If Real Madrid has made the arrival of Kylian Mbappe its top priority for next summer, the Catalan club wants to do everything possible to achieve the very big blow Haaland. Moreover, official voices have already risen in Barcelona to confirm the next major offensive for the number 9 of BVB.
Only, the president of Spanish soccer has come to remind the Blaugrana that their current financial difficulty can not allow them to engage in such an operation. Unless they manage to make an important downsizing.
“Today, given the current situation, they can’t have Haaland. If they had the agreement with CVC or if some players left, they could undertake something like that. They still have months to work on it,” said Javier Tebas in an interview with TeleMadrid.
In other words, Barcelona is out of the race for the signature of Erling Haaland. Paris SG will have to face the competition of Real Madrid. Again, things are not easy for the club of the capital.
