Norwegian wonder kid Erling Haaland will only join Barcelona if Lionel Messi stays.
Haaland has been linked with a move to Barcelona with his agent Mino Raiola said to have been in Spain this week to negotiate a deal with his Spanish suitors that included Real Madrid too.
Reports from journalist David Bernabeu Reverter now claim that Haaland is ready to rule out a transfer to Barcelona if Messi decides to leave as his ambition is to play alongside the Argentine.
Haaland who joined Dortmund last January from Red Bull Salzburg has netted 49 goals and provided 11 assists in his 49 appearances for the club.
His outing in the Champions League is something to admire too. In a total of fourteen appearances in the competition, the striker has amassed a resounding twenty goals and two assists.
While the player is said to be keen on a move to Spain, English giants Manchester United and Liverpool together with Man City are the other clubs said to be interested in the player even though his representative has had a tough outing with the Manchester sides.
