Barcelona who are Spanish La Liga giants have reportedly made Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as their main transfer target and they will move for him at the end of the season.

This comes hours after Haaland and his teammates at the German Bundesliga side crashed out of the Champions League losing against Premier League side Manchester City.

There is no doubt about the fact that Erling Haaland is one of the fast rising youngsters in the world considering his performances so far for Borussia Dortmund.

In fact, Haaland and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe have both been tipped as the two players who will replace Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Borussia Dortmund are currently occupying fifth position on the Bundesliga table and the side's chiefs will find it hard to keep Haaland in the summer if they should fail to qualify for next season's Champions League.

According to the report on UK Sun, Barcelona chiefs are trying to convince Erling Haaland's representatives that moving to the Nou Camp would be the best for him.

Their logic centres around the benefits of the 20-year-old potentially getting to play with Lionel Messi in his first years at the club.
