The statement came when rumors linking Barcelona with a potential move for Haaland, one of the most sought-after talents in European football. The Norwegian forward has been a subject of intense speculation, with several top clubs eyeing for his signature, including Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Barcelona.

Laporta’s statement, while surprising to many, says a shift in the club’s transfer strategy under his leadership. Historically, Barcelona has been synonymous with marquee signings, boasting with some of the game’s most illustrious names.

This statement from the president means Barcelona will be looking out for some technical players and first of all their priority is to find a new manager as their manager Xavi is already decided to leave at the end of this season.
