Joan Laporta wasting no time at Barcelona as he jumps ahead of Premier League rivals to secure world-class star

Having finally taken office as Barcelona president this week, Joan Laporta will know that he needs to make a splash in the transfer market if he is to convince players and members alike that he means business.

Bringing the glory days back to a club that have been in the doldrums for a while now is no easy feat, however, if anyone can pull it off, it’s the charismatic new man in charge.

FC Barcelona’s recently elected president Joan Laporta

It’s vital for the Catalans that money is saved on wages collectively, whilst still being in a position to fight for the best available talent, and to that end, Sport are reporting that Laporta has made the first official approach to Mino Raiola for his client, Erling Haaland.

Given that the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United are all known to be interested in the player, his hire is already threatening to become a real tug of war.

If the early bird really does catch the worm, then Laporta has already played a blinder by putting his cards on the table straight off the bat.

His warm working relationship with Raiola may yet pay dividends.

    Hi Joan,

    sell Lenglet, Griezmann, Umbtidi, Junior Firpo, Coutinho , Braithwaite AND GET HAALAND. It will be for many years. Imagine him playing along with Messi, Pedri, Dembele, De Yong, Dest, Ilaix etc.

    you will have the best team on the planet again. Don`t listen to the sirens!

    We’ve the best President that listen, He take advice, He meant well for the club, He had done it before and he will do it again but he should not spare Bartholomew and his predecessor boards that nearly sink our boat financially to go unpunished so that all other upcoming leader’s will learn.. they both brought corruption to the club and tarnished our image before our heroe players in the club.. Dear Larpota, we love you.. let justice prevail during your time…thanks.

    I do not see barca buying any expensive players unless either grizman or dembele or coutiho and umtiti, firpo and alena leaves the club. our finances right now is a critical position to add any fat wages to the bill

    Hello Joan,
    You are highly welcome back to the office, the man of people, I will surgest we sell griezmann, umtiti, lenglet, Braithwaite, coutinho and pjanic and we buy halaand, to pair with messi and ansu fati upfront and make dembele a substitute bench, if we swap griezmann with dybala, it is not a bad business and get aguero as back up striker to haaland, coutinho and pjanic has nothing to offer us again replaced them with a very talented midfielder that understands barca philosophy like Thiago ankatara or anyone, alaba would be a bargain to our defense line for his experience and multi-purpose as LB/LCB option as we already have pique, and secure Garcia from man city.

      Hello laporta
      This is the time we the FANS need someone like you to revive our football culture back to the glory days ,we need harland in our attack ansu fati with master himself leo messi to complement our attack, please la massia is back Alex COLLADO and Gonzales should be given a chance

  6. Ojukwu Christian says:

    Griezmann, Coutinho, Umtiti, Martin, Alena and Pjanic, should be sold to enable the signing of Erling next summer.

  7. Hurley says:

    He wont get Haaland, Chelsea have already got him, when Abramovich wants a player he gets him.

  8. David says:

    Ooooo ooopop
