Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland celebrates after scoring a goal against Besiktas in the Champions League Group C match at Signal Iduna Park, Germany, Wednesday (12/8/2021). Dortmund won a landslide victory over Besiktas with a score of 5-0.
Barcelona – The financial crisis that hit Barcelona is still not over. Los Cules management does not want to be careless in spending players in the summer transfer market this year, including bringing in Erling Haaland .
Despite being in crisis, El Barca is quite active in spending on players in the January transfer market. They spent 55 million euros and managed to get three strikers, namely Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adama Traore.
This activity made the public suspect that Barcelona actually had money to stick around in the 2022 summer transfer market. Including buying Haaland who had a transfer clause of 75 million euros at Borussia Dortmund.
But in reality, they are blocked by the salary cap regulations set by La Liga. Some time ago, La Liga announced that Barcelona‘s salary cap was minus 144 million euros.
As a result, the Blaugrana must get income first before buying new players.
The release of the latest salary cap makes Barcelona doubtful that they can buy Erling Haaland. Because, they often find it difficult to sell players who no longer want to play at Camp Nou.
Won’t Sigh In the end, Joan Laporta as the club’s president chose to prioritize the club’s finances rather than sticking out in the transfer market. Laporta said Barcelona would not hesitate to buy Haaland if they couldn’t afford it.
“I’m not going to talk about specific players, but I can tell you that we won’t make a deal that puts the club at risk,” Laporta told Mundo Deportivo.
“The members can rest easy because we will not lose our minds just for an operation of this magnitude. Most players want to go to Barcelona, they like this club, the team, the philosophy, the way we work and interpret the game.”
