•  The Manchester City coach was asked again about the Norwegian striker for Dortmund, the great goal of the summer for the ‘citizen’ team

Erling Haaland’s future points to a soap opera. The Borussia Dortmund striker is in the spotlight, among other teams, from Real Madrid, Manchester City, and FC Barcelona, ​​who are fighting to get him to sign.

The ‘citizen’ team seems the best placed to take over the services of the Norwegian striker, who despite injuries this season has scored 23 goals in 22 games, although the LaLiga teams have not yet said the last word about him.

Meanwhile, the English press does not stop asking Pep Guardiola about the state of the negotiations, a situation that has ended up provoking a resounding response from the Catalan coach.

“If you know that I don’t answer about this, why do you ask? Since I’ve been here, it has been said that every summer we will sign 50 players. Right now, it is impossible to talk about players who are not here. Haaland is a Dortmund player. You can ask about him or anyone else, the answer will be the same,” Guardiola said at a press conference before facing Southampton on Sunday in the FA Cup match (4:00 p.m.).

City’s ‘offer’

According to the Daily Mail, City would have offered Haaland a stratospheric contract with a salary of 600,000 euros per week, which would make him the highest-paid footballer in the Premier.

Bild published this week that Haaland has a termination clause of 75 million euros until April 30. This is the term that the teams interested in the Norwegian ‘killer’ have to communicate to Dortmund that they are willing to make the payment.

Prudence in the Barça

Finally, within FC Barcelona the official position is that nothing crazy will be done to undertake the signing of the Norwegian crack. The delicate situation that the club is going through makes it difficult for him to join, although at Camp Nou they hope that Haaland’s desire to wear a Barça shirt will end up tipping the balance in his favor.

Barça’s sports vice president, Rafa Yuste, in statements to MD expressed himself in a similar line to that of president Joan Laporta, who said that common sense will prevail so as not to put the culé treasury in more trouble.

“We have to concentrate on our club, there is a long way to go. We have found a club with a terrible economic situation, which has not allowed us to generate the expectations that we should have had in fair play. As the president said, first The entity is there and we cannot do according to what things that put at risk. I see transfers of this magnitude as very difficult, although it can never be said unfeasible because the world of football goes around a lot,” Yuste assessed this Friday in Nyon.
