According to the latest information from the Catalan daily Sport, confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, a renowned journalist in the transfer window, the meeting between the Haaland clan and Barça would have been positive. The media goes on to reveal the details of this summit meeting. Joan Laporta, accompanied by Mateu Alemany, Barça’s director of football, have reportedly spoken of the club’s intentions to undertake the signing of the Norwegian striker. After words, it’s time for action. The new president of the Blaugrana has therefore taken the next step, by organizing this direct face-to-face with the entourage of Erling Haaland. But that’s not all, the information goes further.
Still at this meeting, Sport and Fabrizio Romano reveal that Barca’s interest in the Norwegian has been reaffirmed, and that they “will enter the auction”. However, one important detail must be taken into account: the intentions of Borussia Dortmund. Indeed, the viability of a transfer will only be conditioned by the demand for Marsupials, in particular around the price claimed. The Catalan daily concludes by indicating that at FC Barcelona, optimism in this matter is in order. The meeting lasted around two hours, and Erling Haaland’s representatives have already left Barcelona. If obviously no agreement has been ratified between the two parties, Barça drew first.
