Barca hunt Haaland, won’t rule out Messi return

Barca is determined to keep Erling Haaland out of Real Madrid’s clutches and view a deal for the Borussia Dortmund striker as “difficult, but not impossible”.

Masip said of potential transfer movement:

“The signing of Haaland is difficult, but not impossible. We will meet many circumstances to be able to sign him. Despite the economic situation, the club is looking for formulas to continue making signings.

“I refer to the words that the president said: the club is in a position to be able to sign, but obviously, there have to be movements. For someone to come, someone has to leave.

“That is in the hands of the technical secretariat, and then later there is the economic part. Speaking of Haaland, he is a player who has the enormous quality and is a true ‘9’. He is a player who would always be interesting in any big team.”

Since the day of Haaland’s Dortmund debut on January 18, 2020, the Leeds-born forward has managed 80 goals in 82 club games across all competitions.

Masip added, according to Mundo Deportivo:

“I would prefer that Mbappe and Haaland don’t get together in Madrid.”

Regarding a possible return for Messi, Masip said:

“Nothing is impossible, but there have been no winks from the club.”

Messi is enduring a tough first season at Paris Saint-Germain and has scored just two Ligue 1 goals for the French league leaders. The Argentinian hit a record 672 goals for Barcelona.

He signed a two-year deal with PSG in August 2021, with an option for a third year.

Haaland appears a likelier acquisition for Barca than Messi, although the club’s tune changes regularly when talking of the prolific Dortmund frontman.

Laporta earlier this month seemed to dampen the expectation of such a deal, given the hefty cost involved.

“Even if we had the best economic situation, there are operations we would not do,” Laporta told Esport3.
