BARCELONA - Laporta denied negotiations with Haaland
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has denied that the club has started negotiations with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland, and added that any meeting between manager Xavi Hernandez and the 21-year-old Norway international is "none of my business".
"I can deny that there has been any kind of negotiation over Haaland," Laporte said in a meeting of supporters groups. "Not a meeting, nor a conversation, nothing. With regards to the meeting between Xavi and Haaland in Munich, that's none of my business, but two sportsmen can talk about football, I suppose. The first thing we'd do is contact Borussia Dortmund, his club."
