Erling Haaland's future has reportedly been wrapped up already, with agent Mino Raiola having made a 'pact' with one club over the striker's signing.
Haaland is almost certainly going to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, with some claims that he has a release clause as little as £68 million.
The striker is one of the most wanted players in the world, although only a few clubs are likely to be of interest to him, and Real Madrid are one of the favourites to sign him, with the Norwegian apparently not interested in a move to England.
Real are expected to also add Kylian Mbappe in the summer, with the PSG forward out of contract at the end of the season and Los Blancos are clear favourites for his signature.
That could spell the end of their hopes to sign Haaland, despite wanting both, with one report on Tuesday claiming that Mbappe going to the Bernabeu will mean Haaland going elsewhere.
Deportes Cuatro say that the former Red Bull Salzburg striker has decided to join Barcelona and that Raiola has even made a 'pact' with the club.
The pact refers to Barca being allowed to actually afford the 21-year-old, which might not be as easy as the Spanish giants would hope.
They've just spent an initial £46 million on Ferran Torres from Manchester City, a move they were supposedly only able to afford due to a bank loan.
However that move comes with a potential move back to City for the rest of the season, if the buying club can't actually find any room in their wage budget to register him.
This week club president Joan Laporta claimed the club were 'back' and having to send Torres back to City would be some embarrassment for them.
Barca are said to be 'obsessed' with stopping Real signing Haaland however, so no matter their current financial situation it makes sense they would make this pact with Raiola.
In order to free up their wage cap, the Nou Camp club could sell players, and there has been talk of Philippe Coutinho leaving in January.
Ousmane Dembele is another who could leave the club, especially with his 'crazy' salary demands, although Xavi has previously wanted him to stay.
