Erling Haaland’s father and Mino Raiola have reportedly landed in Barcelona to discuss a possible summer transfer.
According to Spanish outlet Sport, the pair were whisked away in a car driven by club president Joan Laporta’s right-hand man.
The newly-elected Barcelona chief hinted at a move for the Borussia Dortmund striker before winning the post last month.
The club is dealing with a difficult financial situation while also attempting to renew Lionel Messi’s contract, which expires in June.
But reports suggest Raiola and Laporta hold a strong working relationship, potentially standing them in good stead to win the race for Haaland.
SunSport revealed this week that a deal to sign the 20-year-old could cost as much as £300million.
That includes a £150m transfer fee and a five-year contract featuring £600,000-a-week wages.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the meeting between Mino Raiola, Erling Haaland’s father and Joan Laporta has been positive.
It was the first contact to discuss the new Barcelona project – obviously, there’s nothing done or advanced, the race will be long as many clubs are involved… Barça are in.
