Despite the current financial crisis surrounding F.C. Barcelona, the team has made some bold claims regarding its plans for the summer transfer window. According to MARCA, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has made a very bold claim regarding a marquee deal over the summer. MARCA reports that Laporta is claiming he will sign Norwegian starlet and the highly-coveted Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland, over the summer.

Well, based on everything that has been made publicly available regarding Barcelona’s current financial standing, there seems no possible way the Catalan giants would be able to afford Haaland.
