In the summer transfer window, Barcelona wants to sign a striker.
Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is the Catalan club’s main target, writes As.
New Barcelona president Joan Laporta is certain that a contract is possible despite the financial difficulties the club is experiencing.
The manager wants to take advantage of his close relationship with the Norwegian’s agent Mino Raiola.
Barcelona is planning to issue bonds in the near future, which will reduce the club’s debt (about €1.2 billion) in a short period of time. The Catalans also have to pay off short-term debts, which are estimated at €200m.
However, Laporta is assured that the best solution for the Barcelona crisis would be to create a winning team. He sees the purchase of Haaland as a means to this end.
The forward has played 19 games scoring 19 goals and making 4 assists in the Bundesliga this season.
