Details of Haaland's alleged Barca deal revealed

Details regarding Haaland's alleged deal to join Barcelona revealed

January 4, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The Norwegian footballer is set to become one of the hottest players in the world, and Los Culés have seemingly won the race to sign him.

Barcelona's financial problems have been well documented this year, and even if the club's finances are hanging by thin thread, the possibility of signing Erling Haaland next summer has been disclosed by a Spanish media outlet.

According to Deportes Cuatro, the negotiation between agent Mino Raiola and president Joan Laporta concluded with what can only be categorized as good news for Los Culés: the agent has "promised" Laporta that Haaland will end up playing for Los Blaugranas if they can come up with the money to sign him.

The media outlet states that the bid to sign the Norwegian ace will have to include the player's wage, a signing bonus, an additional fee for Raiola, and the buyout clause established by Borussia Dortmund.

The reasons for Laporta's optimism have reportedly been fueled by Haaland's desire to lead a winning project at Camp Nou. Added to that, the player is allegedly not interested in sharing the same locker room with Kylian Mbappé, which could take place if both strikers ended up joining Real Madrid, just like Florentino Pérez planned to do. 

The alleged deal, which was reportedly struck during a meeting in Turin, would see Haaland joining Los Culés for the next three years with an additional two mandatory seasons if a number of objectives are reached by the player. Barcelona would be forced to offer Haaland a €30M deal per season before taxes, which would immediately make the Norwegian one of the best-paid players in the globe.

Nevertheless, Laporta's wishes to sign Haaland may not come easy, even with Raiola's vow not to let the player join Real Madrid. The reasons to be dubious about this deal come due to Barcelona's baffling financial problems, which have seen their debt rise to over €300M (over $338M), and in order to bring Haaland, the club must first get rid of some of its highest earners, which include Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, Neto, or even Ousmané Dembelé, who has been urged by coach Xavi Hernández to make up his mind and give the team a straight answer regarding his future.
