Transfer Rumors and News

Barcelona president plans to replace key superstar with €180 million-rated phenom in 2025

A recent report from Diario SPORT has highlighted Barcelona’s plans for the attacking department in the years to come.

While there were initial doubts about the continuity of Robert Lewandowski, it appears the player will stay at Barcelona, especially after rejecting a ‘triple-your-salary’ offer from Saudi Arabia.

Barcelona’s plan to sign Erling Haaland

As per the report, Lewandowski’s continuity is sought so that the club can have more time to prepare for the ‘dream signing’ that is Erling Haaland.

Barça have been linked with a move for Haaland in the past, but have been unable to make a strong case due to the club’s poor finances.

But it appears Joan Laporta has plans to sign the Man City forward in the summer of 2025, as he looks to counter Real Madrid’s purchase of Kylian Mbappe.

Barcelona are aware that Real Madrid cannot be allowed to have both Mbappe and Haaland in the same team. With that in mind, the club will do everything it can to secure the services of the Norwegian in 2025.

What about Lewandowski and co?

Everything suggests Lewandowski will continue at Barcelona next season. But it seems Laporta has plans to sell the Polish hitman in the summer of 2025.

With Lewandowski having a contract until 2026, offloading the player next summer could help the club bring in fresh revenue while also freeing up space in the wage bill.

By having Lewandowski as part of the team next season, Barcelona can also buy Vitor Roque enough time to adapt to the conditions and become a trusted option in the first team.

Between now and then, though, Barcelona must make serious efforts to balance their finances if they are to truly sign Haaland in 2025.

The player is reportedly keen on plying his trade in Spain, but without proper financial resources, the club can barely hope to compete with Real Madrid, for the pursuit of the Norwegian.
