In the race for the presidency of Barcelona FC, several candidates make proposals that sound like glory on the culés benches, and that is precisely the feeling that Joan Laporta has left when stating that he has serious intentions to sign Erling Halaand, the Borussia forward Dortmund, as part of his new management in case of being elected.
November 28, 2020 · 09:48 hs
The presidential candidate of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, is ready to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund should he become club president. The report that was released states that Mino Raiola, Haaland’s representative, is a good friend of Laporta, which will help them smooth out the negotiations.
The Norwegian signed for Dortmund last season in January from Red Bull Salzburg after winning the Champions League. His decision came as a result of a clause that he wanted to include in his contract, around his termination clause, which is set at 75 million euros.
Haaland has recently been awarded the Golden Boy Award, an award given by Tuttosport to the best under-21 player playing in the top flight in Europe. He accumulated 302 points and had a substantial difference of 63 points over Ansu Fati of Barcelona, who was the runner-up.
The forward has conquered the world, scoring ten goals in seven Bundesliga appearances and six in four UEFA Champions League games. Signing him or Neymar is a priority for several Barcelona presidential candidates.
The Barcelona elections are scheduled for the last week of January, and the results will be announced after the January transfer window ends. Joan Laporta is among the top two candidates for the job, having led the club to a treble during his tenure as president in 2009.

Alexander-Arnold and Erling Haaland are some of the great absentees in the FIFA The Best awards, who else had arguments to be considered?
The finalists and the finalists for the award The Best of FIFA for the 2019/20 season were announced on Wednesday. While there was no significant surprise on the list of nominees, there are questionable points in the male categories.
For this reason, ESPN.com He listed five names that could be in the dispute for best player and were left out, either for individual performance or also for achievements. Also, three coaches who are out, but who had arguments to be considered.
At 22, the right-back has established himself as the best in the world at his position and was one of the most important players for Liverpool to win the Premier League, the club’s first league title in 30 years. He scored four goals and provided 13 assists.
He is the midfielder for Bayern Munich, a team that dominated Europe and took all the titles the previous season. Author of a great goal that determined the victory of Munich in Dortmund and the direction of the Bundesliga, the midfielder is the one who dictates the rhythm of the team, he has great defensive and offensive importance with his seven goals and 15 assists that prove it. His performance throughout the season was much more consistent and impactful than that of Thiago Alcántara, who is on the top ten list.
He did not win titles, but the 20-year-old Norwegian, who debuted in the Champions League as if he has known it for a long time, was not short of goals – he was the competition’s top scorer with ten goals, although he was eliminated in the round of 16. Voted the best under-21 player in Europe, the forward scored 44 goals in 40 games in the season between his games with Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund.
Speaking of goals, the Italian did not take the Golden Boot for nothing. The forward won the award after scoring 36 goals in the Italian Championship (not counting nine assists), which were essential for Lazio to qualify for the Champions League after a 13-year absence.
The Liverpool captain was voted the best player of the last Premier League campaign by the English press, although in the players’ vote the winner was Kevin de Bruyne. The midfielder can often be overlooked for not scoring or assisting, but he’s more than just a leader for the Reds. He is a key player in the balance and rhythm of such an intense and well-trained team.
Copa Libertadores, Brazilian Championship, Brazilian Super Cup, South American Recopa, Carioca Championship … The Portuguese only did not win the Brazil Cup with Flamengo, we agree that it was not for that reason that he was not on the list of candidates for the award of best coach. In addition to the titles, Jesús was the architect of the team that presented the best football of the decade in Brazil. Not even the distance between South American and European football serves as an excuse for the Portuguese not having been nominated.
Finalist in the German Cup, solid campaign in the Bundesliga finishing third and semifinalist in the Champions League in his second participation in history. RB Leipzig’s success in the 2019-20 season is a huge credit to Julian Nagelsmann, who saw his team play well and be very convincing, even as Timo Werner, the great name of the squad, left the club before the end it’s from the season. Even without his star, the coach managed to get his team to eliminate Atlético de Madrid in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Gian Piero Gasperini
A few minutes separated Atalanta from being RB Leipzig’s rival in the Champions League semi-final, as PSG scored two goals in the final minutes of the match and ended the Serie A club’s dreams of winning the Champions League. Frustration over the defeat did not diminish the impact that the Bergamo team had on Europe. On the domestic scene, the team finished third in the Italian championship and once again had the best attack in Serie A with 98 goals. A number that draws both the attention and the absence of Gian Piero Gasperini.
Among the nominees, the absence of players from the United States, the last world champions, stands out. The current best in the world, Megan Rapinoe (OL Reign), was not mentioned, not even Marta (Orlando Pride), a six-time champion. The scenario was due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on women’s soccer in the United States. Rapinoe, for example, didn’t want to play the Challenge Cup.

According to reports, Chelsea points to the youngster from Borussia Dortmund, Jude Bellingham, as an alternative to Declan Rice.
The Blues They have been monitoring the young West Ham figure for a long time.
They see him as a future star at Stamford Bridge who could accompany Kai Havertz and N’Golo Kante in midfield. West Ham’s determination to stay with the Englishman has led Chelsea to seek alternatives.
One option being touted is Bellingham, who moved to Germany from Birmingham in July.
According Eurosport , the Blues board are seeking a deal for Bellingham next summer. His potential means he could be a target in place of his compatriot Rice.
The 17-year-old recently made his England debut, becoming the third-youngest player in history to do so.
He has also gotten off to a good start in life in Germany. He has formed a great partnership with Jadon Sancho and has already appeared 11 times in this campaign.
His development means he could be the subject of a major Premier League bid in the summer of 2021.
Bellingham’s potential is considered one of the highest in the Bundesliga.
That’s why the German team paid £ 25 million for an untested young player earlier this year.
The sacrifice that Chelsea has to make
It’s unclear what this means for Chelsea’s hunt for Rice. Reports emerged last week that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was willing to sell two players to sign him.
They are willing to part with two players of the stature of Jorginho, Marcos Alonso and Antonio Rudiger. That would increase your transfer funds.
If Bellingham becomes their main target, the Blues will have to spend a lot. Dortmund will not be willing to sell Bellingham for less than £ 50 million. Along with Sancho and forward Erling Haaland, the teenager is one of the brightest prospects on his roster.
With the Manchester City losing the possibility of signing Lionel Messi, the end of the transfer window was relatively quiet on the attack front.
In fact, both Raheem Sterling and Ferran Torres, who did not perform poorly in that position, have had to substitute as center forwards amid injury problems for players like Gabriel Jesús and Sergio Agüero, such is the lack of depth they have there after that a deal for Lionel Messi fell through.
Although there is apparently a dearth of genuine top-notch coverage within that position at the moment, Eurosport suggests the club is looking for backup.
According to his report, Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has become a real target for Manchester City in the next transfer market.
The Norwegian has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top after moving to RB Salzburg from Molde in 2019, scoring 29 goals in 27 appearances for the Austrian team before reaching 27 in 29 after moving to one of the major European leagues. .
Now with a sustained scoring impact in the European Champions League, Haaland is arguably one of the most prolific forwards on the continent even at the age of 20.
Considering Sergio Agüero will soon be out of contract, comparing Haaland to Gabriel Jesus seems more appropriate. Given that City’s xG by Premier League has dropped from 2.06 to 1.12 overall, looking for such a capable player in front of goal as Aguero gets older seems like a sensible idea.
In terms of goals scored this season, the Dortmund star has already scored ten league and Champions League goals compared to Jesus’ three.
Obviously, Haaland’s father also played for Manchester City and while the forward has spoken of his affection for Leeds United before, they surely couldn’t afford to sign him anytime soon.
While the Barcelona is in transition, immersed in financial problems and getting an idea that Lionel Messi would go at the end of the season, Samuel eto’o appears on the horizon and len signals the player who should be his next big signing: Youssoufa Moukoko, Borussia Dortmund.
“There is a young player who plays for Dortmund, called Youssoufa Moukoko. He is 15 years old and he is the next great player, for me, after Messi. Con Antoine y Youssoufa, that team would attack very well, “he told Goal.
Youssoufa he is barely 15 years old, but he already trains with the Dortmund first team, even Erling Haaland surrendered to him: “Moukoko is much better than what I am It was at 15 years old. At that age he was already training with Dortmund while I was still at Byrne ”.
The Cameroonian forward he’s used to pressure and great expectations about him, since since childhood he has amazed the world of football. TOHe was only 13 years old and was already in the Borussia U-17, While at 14 he made the jump to the U-20 and now with 15 he already trains with the first team.
Good night!!! Welcome to the second day of the Champions League in Group F, where they face, in a match marked by urgency, Borussia Dortmund y Zenit. Both are colistas group after being defeated by the Lazio, in the case of the Germans, and the Witches, in that of the Russians. Therefore, everything that is not add the three points it would begin to complicate the passage to the next round of the competition for both. He Dortmund, who plays at home, is the main favorite of the game, and will hold on to the good moment of his forward Haaland, seven goals in the last seven games for Dortmund, to achieve victory. But Zenit promises to give a lot of war and sell your defeat dearly.
Great game at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund, which from now on you can enjoy it through MARCA.com. My name is Manu Polo and I’m going to tell you, with the Víctor Romero’s comments, everything that happens from now until the final whistle in the game. Get comfortable, and enjoy the best football in the world.
Champions LeagueHis 11 goals in nine games are a record
The defeat (3-1) of Borussia Dortmund in the Olympic did not cut the streak of Erling Haaland. The Norwegian ‘wet’ against Lazio further filling a sack loaded with goals in the Champions League since his debut with RB Salzburg a year ago.
“He has a great mentality. When he loses in training he is not happy. We already know what he is capable of … and so do you,” explained a Lucien Favre who is getting all his juice: Haaland has 23 goals in 26 yellow matches, seven in eight this season.
Figures that are record-setting in the Champions League. “I have a lot to improve. My right foot, my left foot, my passing game, my technique, my movements … Everything!”, Confessed a ‘9’ that at 20 years old improves the start of the 10 greatest gunners ever in the tournament. His 11 goals in nine games in the Champions League surpass the start of the 10 highest historical scorers in the Champions League -since 1992-. Cristiano (130 goals) did not celebrate a single goal in his first nine games. Messi (116) only signed two and Raúl, who closes the podium with 71 goals, scored seven and is the one who comes closest together with Van Nistelrooy and Henry.
Zenit gets in the way of a Haaland who has scored against the five rivals he has measured -Genk (four), Naples (three), PSG (two), Liverpool (one) and Lazio (one) –. It is pure effectiveness: 16 times he shot on target, hitting the target 11 times (69%). The Russian team awaits him in his ‘Tenth’ … role in the Champions League.
There was a minute in which there was a hint of Derby crackling. That was when Mats Hummels had just sunk a massive header into the Schalke goal, and then when he stopped meaningfully on the spot. Erling Haaland, always on the move at high emotional speeds anyway, ran towards the goal scorer, then the two of them roared their enthusiasm into each other’s distorted faces that the aerosols were just flying. For a moment you could have thought it was Derby.
Otherwise, however, the otherwise over-the-top game of games dwindled to a sober Bundesliga working day. Only 300 spectators were allowed by the health department, so there was little to cheer and cheer on in the stands. In the end, it was 3-0 for Borussia Dortmund against arch rivals Schalke. In a few minutes, more precisely: between the 55th and 61st minute, the game was decided when Manuel Akanji, who had returned from his corona infection, scored 1-0 and then Erling Haaland after a nice combination with Jadon Sancho the 2 : Had scored 0.
At the latest it became clear why the old Ruhr rival has been waiting for a win for 21 games. Like a brave amateur team, the Schalke team defended one half, but it wasn’t enough for more. And if you looked at the statistics that ended with zero chances to score in 90 minutes for Schalke, you knew that scoring goals for this barely existing offensive could remain difficult the whole season, even against the smaller caliber of the league.
For Mats Hummels personally, the goal to 3-0 meant something, although the game seemed to be decided by then. After all, Dortmund’s substitute captain knows the folklore of the derby, and it was actually the first time that he scored a goal against Schalke. “The Derby goal was really something that was high on my personal bucket list,” he said. In the Hummels generation, bucket list means something like: things that you still want to tick off in life. Hummels was apparently able to tick off the fact that the framework of the games is currently not really great.
Because of the obvious weakness of Schalke, nobody at Dortmund really knew how high the topic of “reparation” should be after the disastrous Champions League performance at Lazio last Tuesday. Licensed player boss Sebastian Kehl expressly affirmed that the derby had reconciled the pitiful 3-1 in Rome, but at the same time one noticed Kehl’s uncertainty that had already generated the 2-0 defeat at FC Augsburg. In Dortmund, old doubts had reopened in the last few days – including doubts about coach Lucien Favre, who has a remarkably high point yield in his almost two and a half years at BVB, but is always criticized after slips like the one against Lazio.
Especially in important games, the team under the leadership of the Swiss often seems wait-and-see, passive, too little boasting and self-confident. This stigma now clearly attaches to Favre. And it seems to be a reflection of the mentality of the BVB coach. The goading and loud trumpeting are certainly not Favre’s most noticeable qualities.
The relatively easy 3-0 win against Schalke initially drove away the frown; Until next time. On Wednesday, BVB is now expecting Zenit St. Petersburg, which lost 2-1 at home to FC Bruges in the first round of the Champions League.
“If you want to be entertained, you have to turn on ProSieben at 8:15 p.m.”
Favre had made several changes against Schalke, some interesting ones. After the game, Mats Hummels reported that they had spoken intensively with the coach about the return to the back four in defense, which was then completed. “It was clear that we needed an offensive player more, against a tight defense,” said Hummels, who on the other hand is known to have been more committed to the move to the back three some time ago. A system that Favre does not favor per se, but which was apparently recommended to him by the team management and leading players. In addition, Favre switched back to the actual goalkeeper Roman Bürki (after substitute Marvin Hitz had played three times) and renounced regular players like Marco Reus, Axel Witsel and the young Jude Bellingham. “We have competition here, just like everyone else has competition, just like you and me,” said Favre, almost poisonous for his circumstances, when asked about it.
Mats Hummels was obviously in a donor mood that evening and wanted to protect Favre a little. “Here in Dortmund we are spoiled by seven years of press conferences with Kloppo,” said Hummels, twice champion under Jürgen Klopp, “because those weren’t actually press conferences, but late nights shows.” Favre is more withdrawn, he doesn’t reveal much. “If you want to be entertained, you have to turn on ProSieben at 8:15 pm.” On Saturday evening at a quarter past eight an episode of the movie series “Star Wars” was shown. From Luke Skywalker to Lucien Favre, it is truly half a galaxy.
For a new day of the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund in local condition receives the resistance of Schalke04 in a match that will be played this Saturday, October 24.
The duel will be played at Signal Iduna Park and will be broadcast LIVE through OneFootball App. The last time they were measured was on May 16 in a match that ended with a 4-0 defeat in favor of the yellow team.

Schalke 04, for their part, has not had the start to the season desired by their fans and they recognize that they must win with great urgency, since they are in an uncomfortable position in the table.
