Could Barcelona, who are under-financed, recruit Erling Holland, who has established himself as the world’s best striker?

“This is not the first time Barcelona has shown interest in Holland,” Spain’s Mundo Deportivo said on the 26th (Korea Standard Time). In 2021, Holland’s agent and Barcelona contacted him, Holland stayed in Dortmund for a year to go to Manchester City, and Robert Lewandowski signed for Barcelona. Barcelona turned to Lewandowski due to lack of finances.”

He continued, “The door is open for Haaland. Last month, Haaland’s new agent visited Barcelona and met his current coach, Deco. Barcelona’s plan is clear: bring Haaland in around 2025 after Lewandowski leaves. Barcelona will open a new stadium. “We’re building it and raising money. The new stadium will be a great attraction for the Netherlands.”

Barcelona tried to fill in with Holland where Lionel Messi left. Holland continued his career as a Bomber after moving from Salzburg to Dortmund. He scored 27 goals in Germany’s Bundesliga and 10 goals in the UEFA Champions League during the 2020-21 season, as well as attracted the attention of big clubs by showing his outstanding scoring skills next season.

Barcelona, which wanted Holland, lacked finances. Eventually, it failed to recruit Holland and turned to Lewandowski. Holland went to Manchester City and exploded. He scored 36 goals in the Premier League last season and 12 goals in the UCL. He also played a crucial role in Manchester City’s England FA Cup treble, scoring three goals in four games.

This season, he has scored 18 goals in the league and six in the UCL. Holland, who has proven his skills and star quality, is still attracting Barcelona’s attention. With Lewandowski aging and unable to show the destructive power he once had, Barcelona is looking to bring Holland in. It seems that he needs more money than he did when he was hired by Dortmund. Even if the transfer fee is met, it remains to be seen whether he will be able to win Holland’s heart.

Barcelona is earnestly seeking to recruit stars like Haaland while building a new stadium. While the direction can be determined only when Xavi Hernandez leaves and a new coach comes in, Holland is a striker that is needed no matter what the coach comes in. Even if he cannot recruit him right away, he seems to have strong commitment to recruit him. Will Barcelona’s dream come true?
