Barcelona vice-president Rafa Yuste has poured cold water on speculation that the club might make a move for Erling Haaland next summer.
Despite CEO Ferran Reverter hinting at the possibility, Yuste prefers to take a more prudent view.
“I prefer to be governed by the principle of prudence. We come from a situation of a huge economic crisis, therefore prudence,” Yuste told Mundo Deportivo.
“I do not see Haaland [signing] happening now. From now to next year we will see what the situation is and what we can do in terms of signings.
“First we have to lay the foundations of a house that we have found in ruins, so let’s focus first on fortifying it.
“Let’s feed those at home first and then we’ll see what else we can do, without losing sight of the fact that we always want to have the best, and Haaland is one of the best in the world.”
