According to Sport, the meeting between Laporta, Raiola, and Haaland’s father went extremely well. The Catalan club is confident they can get a chance to sign the player and they believe his wage won’t be a problem. However, they still have to convince Borussia Dortmund and hope that Haaland is seduced by the Blaugranas’ project. To be honest about this, the best clubs in the world will present their best project to Haaland.

FC Barcelona has an impossible task ahead of them if they want to sign a player like Erling Haaland. Finding the money will force them to sell many players before the end of next summer.
