FC Barcelona feel confident that they can sign Erling Haaland from Manchester City after this season.

Barcelona is reportedly eyeing Erling Haaland for a 2025 transfer, anticipating an improvement in their financial status by then.

Mundo Deportivo reports that the club is targeting the forward for the 2025/26 season as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

The club has reportedly already initiated discussions about Haaland’s future with his representative, anticipating a stronger financial position to facilitate the move in just over a year.

Notably, a meeting between Deco and Rafaela Pimenta in Barcelona in February stirred speculation.

The club is optimistic about their financial recovery, partly due to their anticipated return to Camp Nou later this year, which is expected to increase revenue.

Barcelona believes Haaland might consider a move for two main reasons: Pep Guardiola’s potential departure, with his contract ending in 2025, and Manchester City’s vulnerability to sanctions following 115 charges of alleged FFP violations.

The club speculates that Haaland would prefer a move to Spain, given his ownership of a property in Marbella, and favors Barcelona over sharing the spotlight in Madrid with Kylian Mbappe.

There’s no official confirmation of Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid this summer, yet signs suggest the French superstar has agreed to an offer from the Spanish giants.

Various outlets have mentioned Haaland’s openness to joining Madrid, even with Mbappe’s potential arrival. However, affording both their salaries might pose a challenge for the La Liga team, given the significant contracts they’re seeking.
