The Blaugrana president denied any contact with the Norwegian striker or with his agent, Mino Raiola, during a Barcelona supporters club event in Orihuela.


Being speechless

Joan Laporta left everyone speechless tonight during his presence with FC Barcelona supporters clubs in the Alicante town of Orihuela , taking advantage of the fact that the Blaugrana team plays this Sunday in Elche. And it is that the Blaugrana president categorically denied having contacted Erling Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola, as well as questioned whether Xavi Hernández had gone to see the Norwegian striker in Munich this week : “I deny that there has been any of negotiation by Haaland. No meeting, no conversation. Nothing, and about the possible meeting between Xavi and Haaland in Munich, that’s none of my business, but two athletes can talk about football, I suppose”. Likewise, he recalled that in the case of wanting the Norwegian striker, “The first thing we would do is go to Borussia Dortmund, which is his team”.


What Laporta said about it

Surprising in any case, the statements of the top leader of FC Barcelona, ​​which he made to the Four cameras, because he had never hidden until now the club’s interest in taking over the services of the Borussia Dortmund striker. In fact, both publicly and privately, he had recognized that it was his priority for this summer, although he also assumed the difficulties of the operation, since there were other clubs, such as Real Madrid and Manchester City, very interested in the Norwegian. However, never before has he been so categorical when it comes to defining himself for Haaland, thus cooling the signing of the striker, who is currently in Munich, recovering from an injury to his right adductor. In any case, we will have to wait if these statements are part of a strategy: we must not forget that the dizzying figures of the Haaland operation were even published this week, which was going to be 300 million euros, between the transfer , commissions and the player’s file.
