They all play their cards

Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern, and Real Madrid are Barça’s main rivals in the fight to sign Erling. All of them have moved to state their intentions in one way or another. From England, they assure that United, who already loved him while he played for Salzburg, hopes to sell Van de Beek to show his cards and please Solksjaer. Who has requested his signing to the club? Like Guardiola, who is looking for a powerful replacement for Agüero. And according to some information, would have already presented an offer of 100 million pounds (115 million euros). At Chelsea, for his part, Thomas Tuchel has shown Abramovich the need to make an effort to convince Dortmund by offering Werner and a significant amount of money.

Bayern maintains a lower tone and aims to be the cover, but its president, Herbert Hainer, has already warned that “we are a financially powerful club.” Real Madrid, for its part, has in its favor the good relationship that Florentino maintains with the president of Dortmund. Hans-Joachim Watzke, whom, according to media related to the whites. He would have already contacted to approach positions. Also, José Ángel Sánchez, general director of Real Madrid and right hand of Florentino. Would have started conversations with Mino Raiola.

The Blaugrana economy is the great inconvenience that Barça has to carry out such an important operation. The club knows that it is difficult, but not impossible. Joan Laporta, in that sense, wants to start his mandate with an important signing with which to send an obvious message to his European rivals. For this, it will be essential to selling before, but the machinery is already underway.
