FC Barcelona are in the rebuilding phase right now, building a young and exciting team for the future. After signing Ferran Torres, the president said that the club is back. He’s confident of building a great team under Xavi.
“I’m going to sign Haaland next summer,” Laporta told colleagues behind closed doors according to Marca.
Laporta is also understood to have agreed a first refusal with Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola should the striker depart Dortmund in the summer.
After completing the signing of Ferran Torres from Manchester City for around €55m (£46.7m), Barca are now finding ways to raise the necessary funds to make big-money transfers, with the Catalan giants hoping to sell first-team stars Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti in January.
Haaland, who has also been linked with the likes of Man City, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, has scored 76 goals in just 75 appearances for Dortmund across all competitions.
