With 2021 coming to an end, two players we expect to get updates from are Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
With much controversy surrounding Mbappe’s future at Paris Saint-Germain and his likely move to Real Madrid in the coming year, he may be joined by Haaland in the Spanish Capital.
Barcelona President Joan Laporta admits he is doing all he can to prevent the deal from happening and to bring the Dortmund striker to Barcelona instead. Some days ago he met with the 21-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola.
Laporta is doing all he can to take the Catalans back to to the glory days having endured a dismal first half of the campaign.
However, the January window is just few days away from now, he believes his plans may not work immediately but with time.
Laporta admitted on a number of occasions that he does not want to see Haaland join Madrid to pair up with Mbappe, and he will do to prevent it from happening.
His wish is to prevent the attacking line-up of Mbappe, Haaland and Vinicius-Jnr and he is prepared to do everything to stop it becoming a reality.
This will be a new battle between the two Spanish Giants of football over Haaland’s signature.
