Barcelona coach Xavi admitted that he would be very happy to see Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe play in La Liga next season.
Mbappe and Haaland are two names of players who are predicted to skyrocket to replace the thrones of players such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Both are also being hunted by a number of top European clubs.
These include Barcelona and Real Madrid. Both are said to be experiencing financial problems.
But next season they are said to be able to bring one of them. Barcelona reportedly covet Haaland while Real Madrid covet the Norwegian striker plus Mbappe.
Xavi wants Mbappe and Haaland to join La Liga
Xavi spoke about the rumors linking Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland to Barcelona and Real Madrid. He initially praised the two as extraordinary footballers.
He also felt happy if only the two of them next season were closer to La Liga. This seems to be a code that he really wants to bring Haaland especially to Barcelona.
“Mbappe and Haaland are two great footballers. It would be great to have them in La Liga, the league and club they are going to will get better. They will bring more fans to the stadium and that will definitely be positive,” Xavi said as reported by Sportsmole .
Xavi Says About His Visit to Germany
Previously there was news that Xavi intervened directly in the hunt for Erling Haaland. He is said to have flown to Germany to directly persuade Haaland to join Barcelona if he leaves Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2022.
Xavi was then asked about the news. He did not deny himself trying to persuade Haaland to move closer to Barcelona.
“I cant divulge the details of the meeting,” said Xavi, quoted by Sportsmole .
“I can only say that we are working on the future for this club. So I cant say more than that,” Xavi said.
“I would be the first to announce it [Haaland transfer] if it happened, but for now we have nothing to announce. We are just doing our best for the present and the future of this club.”
