Pique slams Real Madrid in transfer war for in-demand striker

Now that the January transfer window has come to a close, it does not mean that future transfers are not making the headlines. Barcelona star Gerard Pique has weighed in on the future of in-demand striker Erling Haaland, who is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The Bundesliga side is not keen to let go of the prolific marksman, but his performances in the past two seasons have caught the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Spanish giants FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It has been reported that Los Blancos have the upper hand when it comes to the battle to sign the Norway international, owing to the fact that Barcelona are still in the middle of a massive financial crisis and will likely be unable to outbid their rivals. However, recent reports have also stated that Los Blancos have finally come to an agreement to bring PSG forward Kylian Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.
