The coach spoke in his press conference about the Polish striker who Barcelona want
“The club can’t compete for Haaland or Mbappe? That’s how it is,” said Xavi in his press conference ahead of the Villarreal clash at Camp Nou.
The Barcelona coach understands the difficult financial position they find themselves in.
“The economic situation is what it is. We did not enter the fight for Haaland or Mbappe, but it’s what we inherited. We can’t look back, only forward.”
Asked about new target Robert Lewandowski, the coach did confirm Barcelona’s interest.
“It’s a possibility he could come, yes. He has said it publicly too. There are negotiations but it won’t be easy, he has a year left on his deal with Bayern.”
