Barcelona with ‘Plan B’ for the transfer of Haaland
Barcelona has a plan B to sign with Erling Haaland. They will wait a year and get him for the 75 million euro clause – just like the agreement for his clause that will be activated in 2022.
President Joan Laporta knows it is difficult to pay 150 million euros. At least, in this market for the Borussia Dortmund striker, Haaland.
Plan B has risk attached. He wants to move this summer and other big clubs may be there. Real Madrid, Manchester City, United, Liverpool, Chelsea. However his agent Mino Raiola is not bothered by the possibility of waiting for a year. In fact he proposed to Laporta on Thursday when they met.
Barca have two factors that favor them in the transfer of Erling . One is that the Norwegian wants to move to Spain. He thinks he would win more titles than in the Premier League.
And the second is that he and his father know that Madrid want Kylian Mbappe and he is the second option. And it does not suit him. As it is not the first choice.
The race for Haaland has just begun. In the coming weeks and months the auction will be tremendous. And the rumors will only grow.
Barca believe in their chances of getting him this summer, but Plan B, if not affordable, will be to wait until next year.
