ERLING HAALAND is reportedly ready to wait for Barcelona to find the cash needed to sign him as he ‘dreams’ of a move to the Nou Camp.
The Dortmund striker is one of European football’s hottest properties and is being tracked by a host of heavyweight clubs.
Among them are Premier League giants Manchester United, Chelsea and Man City, all of whom want to bring the prolific goalscorer to England.
LaLiga leaders Real Madrid and mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain are also in the mix for his signature.
But reports suggest Haaland has his heart set on a move to Catalonia at the end of the season.
The problem there is Barca are skint and would struggle to put together the £300MILLION needed to sign the 21-year-old.
The towering forward has a miniscule buy-out clause in the contract he signed at Dortmund back in January 2020 – just £65m.
But when wages and agent fees are added, the cost for the wonderkid’s services is set to shoot up dramatically.
Haaland is keeping his card close to his chest but is said to be ready to wait for his dream move to come through.
He has smashed in 80 goals in his 79 Dortmund appearances so far since arriving from RB Salzburg two years ago.
Ex-England boss Sam Allardyce sensationally claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would still be United manager if the Red Devils had managed to land his transfer.
And City legend Shaun Goater earlier this week suggested his old side are ‘so close’ to bringing the Norway international to the Etihad.
