Erling Haaland is one of the two most valued players at the moment, and the Barça board has already made clear its position on his possible arrival. At 21, the Dortmund player is destined to be one of the benchmarks in world football

From that summit in Italy between Mino Raiola and Joan Laporta, remained clear that the aim of the trip of the president of the FC Barcelona was not only to witness like Pedri won the Golden Boy 2021. The managerial culé knows that it needs a 'superestrella' that go back to give him life to the image of the institution, and Erling Haaland presents like a solution more than futbolística for the arks of the Sportive City Joan Gamper.

Raiola, the one who is his representative, has commissioned to auction him by all Europe, without mattering that have still valid agreement until 2024 with the Borussia Dortmund. However, it went this first approach of the Barça what generated this wave of rumours or of possible movements in summer that have involved to teams like the Manchester City, Real Madrid or the own Paris Saint-Germain, the one who did not appear in the list of interested.

Now, the reasons of the maximum leader of the Barcelona are wide, and the first is the youth that has the ariete. Xavi Hernández has restarted the old habits of the entity and has begun to use to the filial in the rotations of the first team, what has worked to discover talents like Gavi or Nico. With this on the table, a player desequilibrante and with only 21 years would contribute this forcefulness in the attack of the egarense without altering his ideology of game.

Also it is a forward that handles well the times inside the field. It knows to move without the balloon and generate spaces for his mates in the sides. This is one of the attributes that benefits the chemistry of the team, and that with a compound offensive by Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres, could be lethal. Another important attribute is his aerial game. With 1.94 metres of height, is another factor of danger that would add with the desbordes by the bands or the played to unemployed balloon. Beside Ronald Araújo and Gerard Hammered, the Barcelona would be one 'threat' aerial.

His image like icon of the balompié is irrefutable, and is one of the main reasons of the obsession of Laporta in him. Already the Barça shined in the past with the figure of Ronaldinho and afterwards with the one of Lionel Messi. Now, the offices condales know that they need to apply again the formula to go back to be present in the elite of the world-wide sport. An operation that will not be simple neither cheap, but that contributed an incalculable value to the Barcelona staff.

The best '9' of the moment

Although Robert Lewandowski continues carrying all the glory thanks to his spectacular campaign, already his career goes falling, whereas the one of the Norwegian hardly begins. Only in this season, has marked in 22 occasions and has delivered 6 assistances in 19 parties in all the competitions. It has contested 1.555 minutes, by what annotates each 70', an authentic atrocity. These are only some of the reasons by which all the barcelonismo asks 'to cries' the landing of the Nordic in the City Condal, and Joan Laporta knows that his primary aim in these next six months is to close, to as of place, the signing of Haaland.
