Transfer: Barcelona’s bid to sign Haaland ‘very difficult

Barcelona feels a deal to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund will be “very difficult” to do, sources at the Spanish club have told ESPN.

However, Barca will continue their pursuit of the 20-year-old striker.

New Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, met with Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola and his father, Alf-Inge Haaland, last Thursday to discuss a transfer.

Raiola and Haaland Sr. also met with Real Madrid representatives later in the day.

It is understood Laporta left the meeting committed to trying to sign the Norway international, but there is also an acknowledgment that the club’s financial situation is likely to impede a potential deal.
