“We’re coming off a huge economic crisis. I don’t think signing Haaland is possible at the moment,” Barcelona vice-president Rafa Yuste has told Mundo Deportivo.
“Our priority is to fix our finances. We’ll see what happens later. Barcelona have always wanted to have the best players and Haaland is among the best,” he added.
Joan Laporta has refused to deny the Haaland rumours but credible sources assure that the Norwegian is much closer to signing for Real Madrid next summer.
Erling Haaland has scored 68 goals in just 67 appearances for Borussia Dortmund so far.
