Erling Haaland’s agent, the influential Mino Raiola, wants the Borussia Dortmund forward to leave the German club and join Barcelona next season, according to a new rumor.
Haaland is one of the world’s most wanted players due to his amazing goal-scoring prowess even at the young age of 20.
“Raiola is interested in having good relations with Barça again,” according to Catalan TV station TV3.

“Haaland is leaving Dortmund for sure, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he did his best so he could come here.”
In order for the deal to go through, Barcelona’s winning presidential candidate would have to agree to the transfer. But the biggest obstacle for any candidate would be the club’s financial situation. Would they have enough money to afford one of the hottest commodities in the transfer market?
Haaland has been linked with Barcelona in the past, but he’s been targeted by the biggest clubs in the world regularly. He moved from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020 and instantly made an impact at Dortmund, although things could’ve gone differently. According to rumor, Barcelona were tracking him at the time but ultimately decided against bringing him in last year. Since then, Haaland’s market value has skyrocketed.
