This Saturday, PSG announced with a bang that Neymar would renew with the club until 2025. The Brazilian, who was one of the favourites to bolster Barca's attack next season, opted to continue at the Parc des Princes.
As a result, Neymar eliminated himself from Barca's transfer list. The Catalan side are looking to improve their attacking options next season and have already begun outlining their plan for this summer's transfer market.
According to 'Sport', the main target is Erling Haaland. Joan Laporta hasn't hidden his desire to try and convince the Norwegian to play his football at the Camp Nou.
Haaland's agent Mino Raiola travelled to Spain with the player's father. As well as Madrid, they met up with Barca. His future, however, depends on whether Dortmund are willing to let him go.
In Germany they are not ready to give the green light to the transfer in its current format. The deal, according to the latest information, would rise to as high as 200 million euros, an exorbitant figure in the present market.
In addition, Barca have to carry out an audit at the club. They need to ensure they comply with 'financial fair play' rules and this will depend on their signings. The accounts have to add up.
According to 'Sport', Haaland's alternative would be Lautaro Martinez. Inter's man has been linked to Barcelona in the past and this summer could be his final opportunity to play his football at the Camp Nou. Inter would be willing to let him go.
The Catalan newspaper add a third option, but it's already been discarded. Barca have reportedly been in contact with Harry Kane's representatives, but there wasn't an agreement within the club regarding his transfer. There was a worry that he wouldn't be able to adapt to Spanish football and for that reason they have removed him from their agenda.
