Laporta holds secret meeting with Raiola to discuss the signing of Haaland

Barca are making early moves for the summer transfer window, and Haaland will decide his footballing future lies within a matter of weeks

A secret meeting between president Joan Laporta and technical secretary Jordi Cruyff with super-agent Mino Raiola took place in Monaco to discuss the signings of Erling Haaland and Noussair Mazraoui.

Haaland is set to move away from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, with his release clause hanging at £63m million. However, the biggest challenge in signing the Norway striker will be to persuade his agent, Raiola, who will probably demand £15 million in commission.

The Blaugrana club are definitely in the running to sign the striker but face competition from the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich who have all submitted their proposals to land the Borussia Dortmund goal machine.

Mazraoui, meanwhile, becomes a free agent in the summer of this year and would be willing to leave behind Amsterdam in favour of a bigger club.

Barca have been keeping tabs on the right-back for a couple of months now, and his signing could pull the trigger for Raiola to convince Haaland to follow suit.

Haaland is said to be most keen on a move to Spain so the deal could appeal to him.

“We have done very well this winter market and the idea is to do even better in the summer,” said Joan Laporta.

He added: “Haaland in the summer? We hope that in the summer we will also work well and that we will all be satisfied with what we have achieved.”

Laporta made these statements at the premiere of the production ‘Matchday-Queens of the Pitch’, a new documentary series about FC Barcelona Women’s treble season.
