Joan Laporta, the current president of Barcelona has stated to the football world that his side of Camp Nou is back as a major player will appear in the transfer market, despite the club’s debts of over 1 billion.
The Catalan giants have signed Ferran Torres from Premier League’s Manchester City for a value of 55 million pounds, and at present reports have made it clear that the Barca President is showing much interest in Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland. He stated in this regard that everybody in the world should get ready, as they are back as big players in the market. Barcelona is back.
The strategy of Joan Laporta
Joan Laporta also said in this regard that Barcelona has very worrying debts which stand over than 1 billion, which is exactly 1.35 billion euros and 1.13 billion in pounds. In addition to that, this debt increased by 200 euros last year between January and August.
Several players took a wage cut for Barcelona being able to register them as free agents during the last summer transfer window. Erling Haaland on the other hand is one of the most talented footballers in Europe, and will certainly have a good transfer amount, which is his 64 million pounds release clause which is very soon to become active.
Erling Haaland’s performance has been impressive for both his club and country, which is 24 goals in his 19 matches, till now. On the other hand, Barcelona defeated Real Mallorca at La Liga on Saturday night by a score of 1-0.
The goal was scored by Luuk de Jong in the 44th minute. This victory moves them just a point off the UCL. Currently, they are in one-fifth place with 31 points and they would certainly look forward to better their position in the upcoming times, and for that bringing Erling Haaland to the club is a terrific idea.
