A number of Barca fans have laughed off reports of a potential transfer for Man City’s Norwegian goal machine.

This week, a prominent Spanish journalist Gerard Romero has reported that Erling Haaland's agent has engaged in discussions with Barcelona, sparking speculation about a potential transfer to the Camp Nou.

Romero, who has previously been lambasted by ex-Barcelona star Lionel Messi, for his inaccurate reporting has once more made the headlines with his Haaland update.

Despite Barcelona's precarious financial situation, Romero reports that talks between the club and Haaland's representatives reportedly took place on Wednesday, with indications that Barcelona is eyeing a world-class signing in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to Jijantes FC, Barcelona remains steadfast in pursuing key objectives for the summer market, despite their financial constraints.

Sporting director Deco has also reportedly been in talks with individuals close to Haaland, including agent Rafaela Pimenta and Maxwell.

However, the likelihood of a deal progressing appears to be extremely slim due to the financial demands of both Manchester City and the player himself.

According to several reports, Haaland has a release clause worth €175 million in his Manchester City contract, which is well outside the club’s capacity at present.

Following reports of Erling Haaland's potential transfer to Barcelona, fans have taken to social media platforms to express skepticism and amusement given the club's financial woes.

Despite Barcelona's ambitious pursuit of Haaland, fans on social media have raised concerns about the club's ability to afford such a significant transfer fee.

One fan humorously remarked, "The way we all know this is never happening is funny,"

Another fan questioned, "Haaland how? With which money abeg?"

Others expressed disbelief, with comments such as, "Where are you guys going to get the money, I'm crying."

Barcelona's Transfer Prospects depend on President Laporta

With Barcelona facing significant financial constraints, the club is expected to navigate the upcoming transfer window cautiously.

President Joan Laporta's ability to navigate these challenges will be crucial, as the club may be limited to once more pursuing bargain deals in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Barcelona’s reported interest in Haaland is currently seen as a response to Real Madrid's impending move for Kylian Mbappe, who has reportedly agreed a blockbuster-deal to move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
