The publicist for Joan Laporta’s electoral campaign spoke with the well-known culé journalist Gerard Romero on his twitch program “Jijantes”. Lluís Carrasco confirmed throughout the interview that the Norwegian player will choose Barcelona and also provided the data that make him think that the Nordic would never choose Real Madrid ahead of the culé club.
“Let’s see, I know that President Erling Haaland loves it. He knows that he needs a flagship player, a reference and a franchise player for this project full of young people who may be the dominator of European football in the coming years ”, said Lluís.
He also wanted to emphasize that the relationship between Laporta and Mino Raiola is not the only thing that leads him to confirm that Erling Haaland would choose Barça over any other European club: “I know that Laporta likes him a lot and he is going to let himself go to try to bring it. Beyond the friendship with Mino Raiola, who can still influence a bit. “
“The complementary figures in the top teams have a bad life and you just have to see the problems between Neymar and Mbappé and a thousand other examples. Haaland knows it. When two figures arrive in the same season there is a continuous comparison that does a lot of damage to a player. If Erling leaves Dortmund it is to be the undisputed figure of a team. At Real Madrid that would not be the case. In Barcelona it would be automatic.”
These words from a person who has worked side by side with the president of Barcelona fill the Barcelona fans with hope despite the fact that in recent days a multitude of newspapers have confirmed that the Norwegian would prefer the white club ahead of Barcelona.
