•  Chelsea, still owned by Roman Abramovich, has received a sanction for which he will not be able to sign in the next window

Madrid is more for Mbappé than for Haaland. Barça wants Haaland at all costs. The City, too. Despite the fact that the Manchester team has secured the signing of a scorer like the Argentinian Julián Álvarez, Guardiola insists at a press conference that his team needs a 9. When they score 5 goals in Lisbon or they score 4 against United in the derby local (which could have been 8) it does not seem that the fittest team in Europe needs a matador. But last summer they sighed for Harry Kane and this year the sheikh’s check will be to fulfill the economic aspirations of Haaland, his father and those of Mino Raiola.

Even Joan Laporta believes that City are ahead of Barça in terms of chances of signing the giant from Dortmund. Of course, since yesterday a team has had to drop from the fight for the Nordic scorer. Chelsea, still owned by Roman Abramovich, has received a sanction for which he will not be able to sign in the next window. In addition, the departure of the Russian oligarch from the club prevents him from fulfilling the promise he made to Thomas Tuchel when he took charge of the team. That day, in mid-January 2021, Chelsea was ninth in the standings and 7 points away from the Champions zone. Abramovich made a promise to Tuchel that if the team qualified in the top 4, in the summer of 2022 he would sign Haaland. Tuchel complied. Chelsea was fourth and, that’s nothing, they won the Champions League against City. Abramovich will no longer be able to comply. One less rival to sign Haaland.
