Erling Haaland’s Agent Reportedly Arrive Barcelona

Haaland's Agent Arrive Barcelona

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.

***UPDATED***

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.
