Call it over the bar and you will be totally correct as LaLiga president Javier Tebas has said it’s “impossible” for Barcelona to be in a position next season to sign top players like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe due to the club’s financial situation.
Haaland’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, said that the Norway international has the “key to the door” to leave Manchester City whenever he wants.
Tebas has previously spoken about his wish to see Haaland and Mbappe playing in Spain’s top-flight, and when asked if this was good news for LaLiga he told El Chiringuito: “I hope that’s the case. But these two players could only come to Real Madrid right now because Barcelona’s financial situation as of today does not permit Barcelona to reach these types of players.
“Many things would have to change financially at Barcelona for them to be able to go for these players next season, so many things that I would consider it impossible.”
Despite the departures of Gerard Pique, who retired in November last year, Memphis Depay who joined Atletico Madrid and Hector Bellerin’s transfer to Sporting Lisbon, league leaders Barca were unable to sign any players in the January transfer window due to LaLiga’s financial fair play rules.
