The FC Barcelona is paving the way for the arrival of Erling Braut Haaland at transfer market of the European summer. With his goals at Borussia Dortmund, the Nordic striker has become the president’s obsession Joan Laporta, who from his position takes the necessary steps to close the contract. However, the Catalan lawyer is not the only one who is working on the aforementioned operation. As coach of the azulgrana team, Xavi Hernandez He has the mission of making a hole in the attack for the 21-year-old crack, which is why he has thought of up to three players who could leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season.
According to the Spanish newspaper Don Balón, the first of the strikers on the Egarense coach’s blacklist is none other than memphis depay. Although he has had minutes again in recent games, the Dutchman does not quite fit the coach’s idea of the game, so he would have ordered his definitive departure.
In the list of losses of the Barça in attack follows Martin Braithwaite. The striker simply doesn’t count for Xavi and he demonstrated this over the weekend in the game against Elche. Despite being in optimal physical condition, the former Leganés player did not come out even in the call made by the coach.
Always according to the aforementioned source, another striker who must pack his bags at the end of the course is Luuk de Jong. Although the Dutchman has scored important goals since the arrival of Xavi from Barcelona, the former Sevilla is not up to the task of fighting Haaland in 2022-23. His future would be in Turkey.
In line with the signing of Erling Haaland by Barcelona, the newspaper Marca reports that Laporta is close to closing two agreements that will allow him to enter the Spanish club the dizzying figure of 650 million euros, money that will serve to cover the cost of the transfer and nordic salary.

The other 350 ‘kilos’ would come from the sale of 49% of Barça Estudios, the entity that centralizes the creation, production and marketing of the club’s entire audiovisual offer. At this point the deal is not fully closed as Laporta wants to sell only 30% and add a buyback clause.
With all this, Barça would offer Haaland a five-year contract with a gross amount of 195 million euros (20-30-40-50-55), amounts to which must be added the commissions of his representative, Mino Raiola , and a transfer to Borussia Dortmund for 100 million, because the player has a contract until 2024.
