Barcelona have recently joined the long list of suitors for the RB Salzburg wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland but are hesitating over his exorbitant price tag
The Norwegian’s eye-catching start to the season has drawn attention from Europe’s big guns towards his burgeoning talent, with Manchester United remaining in the driver’s seat, according to some reports from England.
A very few players in Europe can boast such a remarkable record as the current Champions League leading goalscorer, who has already gobbled 26 goals in all competitions, including seven in the most prestigious club competition.
After a number of Europe’s top-tier clubs showed interest in Haaland, the Catalans have now added him to their shortlist, but his price tag threats to scare them off.
As per the Daily Mail, the Austrian champions value their prized asset at €100m, which is deemed excessive by the Barcelona hierarchy, who are, nonetheless, keeping close eyes on the coveted youngster.
Although the 19-year-old has already demonstrated that he is a breathtaking talent capable of performing at the highest level in the Champions League, he still has to prove that he is not a one-season wonder.
It might be one of the reasons why the Spanish heavyweights are hesitating to match Salzburg’s whopping demands, but they could return with an offer should Haaland continues to impress throughout the season.
