Last week, we carried a report from Sport, who explained Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland is the one of the major summer targets for Barcelona, and there now seems to be a fresh development in the La Liga side’s effort to sign the striker.

According to Sport, Haaland’s advisor Mino Raiola and father, Alf-Inge Håland, travelled to Spain to negotiate with the Catalan club.

It’s claimed the Spanish club’s new board headed by president Joan Laporta have decided to bet on the Norway international to lead their strike force next season.

The super-agent and the BVB frontman’s father landed in Barcelona on Thursday morning and were received by Joan Laporta’s trusted man.

Laporta shares a good relationship with Raiola and this makes Barcelona ‘optimistic’ over signing the 20-year-old, and at this point, the trip made by the agent and Alf-Inge only fuels more rumours of the BVB frontman playing for Ronald Koeman’s side next season.

That’s about the only information mentioned in Sport’s report and we will update as and when there’s more development.
