The debacle at Barça has a direct consequence for Madrid, at least in the market next summer. The white entity will have less competition to sign two of the most important names that it has on its agenda, those of Haaland and Pogba, both represented by Mino Raiola. Despite the magnificent friendship he has with Joan Laporta since he brought Ibrahimovic to Barça, The superagent is not clear, to this day, to put two of his fetish players in the Camp Nou. The blaugrana powder keg means that, at least, Madrid has less competition for these two operations.
There was a distant possibility that one and the other, Haaland and Pogba, would end up at Barcelona if he managed to get several salaries from his accounts of the most important of his staff in the next summer period. Income, moreover, will have been reestablished. Laporta, however, was seeking additional funding to attempt to recruit the Norwegian, whom he wanted to make his next big hit and the cornerstone of his project. All based on his good relationship with Raiola.
With Pogba the situation is very different. Next summer he will be free and, beyond the salary he intends to collect (he aspires at least to maintain the net 15 million that he now receives in Manchester), and could reach zero cost (more commissions). As AS advanced, Madrid has very advanced the hiring of the French midfielder, which now it sees as a good market opportunity, but he has not yet been able to sign anything (and he will not be able to do so until next January 1, when FIFA regulations allow it). In this situation, Barça and their good relationship with Raiola was a threat.
The dismissal of Koeman has ended up opening a great crisis at Barça that does not escape the eyes of the agents of the best players on the planet. In the culé case, two circumstances come together. Like Madrid, it is mired in a process of staff renewal after a triumphant era, but with the handicap (which does not exist in Madrid because their accounts are healthy) of a precarious economic situation.
This situation does not escape the eyes of Raiola either, who next summer will have in his hands two of the main objectives of the market. But the spotlight is mostly on Haaland. Barcelona, without a doubt, is one of the greats that has the hardest time to sign him. And instead, a tough battle is looming between Real Madrid and PSG to take over the services of the Norwegian. Haaland prefers Madrid and has made it known to Raiola. The problem is that the agent has a great influence on his players. PSG will go with everything if Mbappé, as it seems, ends up in Madrid. City would be the third option … And, as with Pogba, Barça, now a powder keg, will have it much more difficult.
