Ronald Koeman reacted this Saturday to rumors in Spain which indicate a possible interest of FC Barcelona for Erling Haaland. The Dutch coach was evasive about a possible transfer of the Borussia Dortmund striker.
The future of Erling Haaland will shake the next few weeks of the transfer window. By stacking goals with Borussia Dortmund, the Norwegian striker is necessarily in the sights of the biggest European clubs. This Saturday, Ronald Koeman was asked about the possible arrival of the 20-year-old prodigy on the side of Barcelona.
Koeman has « his ideas for the future of the club »
The Catalan press revealed on Saturday that the leaders of FC Barcelona are closely following the Erling Haaland case. Asked if this track was a good idea for the club, Ronald Koeman remained elusive. « I have my ideas for the future of this club, but I have to wait to know who will be the president to sit down and talk about the future », reacted Koeman. As a reminder, these elections will take place next March.
According to Mundo Deportivo, a potential signing of Erling Haaland would necessarily be conditional on the departure of Lionel Messi and other players, freeing up payroll and thus welcoming Haaland. In recent days, the name of the Norwegian international has also returned to Real Madrid’s side.
Under contract until June 2024 with Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland would have a release clause that can be activated from the summer of 2022, for an amount estimated at 70 million euros. What perhaps make the BVB want to sell Erling Haaland at a high price from the next transfer window. But currently in a difficult economic situation, FC Barcelona does not seem the best armed candidate to welcome Haaland.
