Lautaro and Haaland, the favorites to succeed Luis Suarez


Lautaro Martinez and Erling Haaland are the strikers who most like Barcelona to give relief to Luis Suarez from next season. The Uruguayan is the only player of the squad that does not have a natural substitute and although the Catalan club has been combing the market for years in his search it has not been until this season that he has dispelled doubts as to the favorites to succeed him and those are Inter Argentine and Norwegian Red Bull Salzburg.

In fact, Lautaro is well known in Barcelona, ​​as he was the author of Inter’s only goal at Camp Nou. His party, very complete, dazzled Eric Abidal and his collaborators, who since then see him as a more than viable option to accompany Leo Messi on the front of Barça attack within a year. The Argentine has shown a remarkable progression since he signed for Inter a year ago and is currently a starter in the albiceleste while in Milan he has made the fans forget about Mauro Icardi, today in the PSG.

In addition, it has a rescission clause of 110 million euros that would avoid negotiating with the Italian club or in some way would help in a hypothetical negotiation since interist managers could not get on the line with the sale price as it happened with Neymar Da Silva last summer. However, Barcelona must move token as soon as possible because the Nerazzurri are already working to renew the striker and increase their sale price to 200 million euros. At the moment it would be worth a little more than 100, but that is a figure that the Catalan club would not be willing to reach as it is still a young player and not a consecrated star.

It’s more or less the same price that Erling Haaland has as recently assessed by the Red Bull Salzburg. The fashion forward in the Champions League, however, looks towards the Premier League, as his father recently revealed and Barcelona, ​​at least for now, is not in a position to reach such a figure for a nineteen-year-old player who barely presents experience in the elite and although there is a feeling that, just as it happened with Kylian Mbappe – yesterday by shot and today impossible – it can be now or never, since the Camp Nou do not want to lose their minds. What is increasingly clear is that next summer a level center forward will arrive at Camp Nou and Lautaro and Haaland have many numbers to be chosen.
