Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland has been attracting a lot of attention from top European teams after his recent match-winning performances in the UEFA Champions League for Austria based club. If recent reports are to be believed, Barcelona are leading the race to draft in Erling Haaland.
Notably, the 19-year-old youngster had joined Salsburg in January 2019 from Molde, which was previously managed by current Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He has already netted home 19 goals in 16 matches for the club, four of which came in the UEFA Champions League this season.
His phenomenal form in the Champions League has attracted eyeballs from the top clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester United, Juventus and Barcelona. A report carried by Sportsmole confirms that Barcelona are leading the race to sign Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg.
The defending champions of La Liga have been monitoring Haaland’s progress for quite some time now as they need a long-term replacement for the 32-year-old Luis Suarez. With the next summer transfer window still some eight months from now, this transfer saga could be a high voltage one as some of the best clubs in Europe are interested in signing the young forward.
Despite Barca leading the race to draft in Haaland at the moment, do not be surprised if any of the other aforementioned clubs overtake them since they all have the resources to do so.
