Followed by the biggest European teams, Erling Haaland could join FC Barcelona next summer. This is what the Spanish journalist Oriol Domènech suggested, who has been arguing for several weeks that the Catalan club could have a head start in this complex issue.
Mino Raiola is said to be preparing a three-band shot behind the scenes. According to the Spanish journalist Oriol Domènech, who spoke on Tuesday evening in the program Onze of the Catalan channel Esport3, the Italian super-agent would work on the arrival of his client Erling Haaland at FC Barcelona next summer.
Brobbey to replace Haaland?
For this, Raiola would have offered the services of his other protégé, the young Brian Brobbey, at Borussia Dortmund. The 18-year-old striker, considered a great prospect for Dutch football, will see his contract with Ajax Amsterdam end next June. Brobbey, who has made her professional debut this season, has still not extended and Raiola could try to squeeze her in Dortmund as early as next summer to replace Haaland.
Because Raiola aims to also move the Norwegian striker, recruited by Borussia in January 2019. Twelve months after his arrival, Haaland has totally exploded in the eyes of the whole world, and the biggest European clubs are scrambling to sign the 20-year-old prodigy. And among these top names, FC Barcelona could benefit from the friendly relations between Joan Laporta and Raiola, according to journalist Oriol Domènech.
The long-standing friendship between Raiola and Laporta
Laporta, candidate for the presidency of FC Barcelona after the departure of Josep Maria Bartomeu, indeed shares a long-standing friendship with Raiola. On January 24, the Catalan will know if he will occupy the post of president of Barça for the next five seasons. Favorite with Victor Font for this election, Laporta has already mentioned the possibility of recruiting Haaland after a possible assumption of office.
Haaland’s agent, Raiola could therefore tip the scales in Barca’s favor if Laporta is elected as president at the end of January. A transfer that could be made around 75 million euros, according to estimates provided a few weeks ago by Oriol Domènech. If the Norwegian striker left for Catalonia, Raiola would have planned everything to replace him with Brobbey. Movements of players on which the Italian agent could pocket the jackpot.
