Erling Haaland's father Alfie and his agent Mino Raiola were captured on Thursday afternoon arriving in Barcelona ahead of a meeting with club president Joan Laporta regarding the future of the player.

Talks appear to be intensifying between the immediate environment that surround the 20 year-old forward and potential suitors ahead of the summer transfer window, and the news on Thursday only heightened the excitement.

As exclusively revealed by SPORT in Spain, both Erling Haaland's father Alfie and agent Mino Raiola arrived at Barcelona's airport and were driven by the henchman of Joan Laporta for a meeting with the Barcelona club president.

SPORT's Albert Roge then forwarded information that the meeting between Joan Laporta, Alemany, Mino Raiola and Erling Haaland’s father lasted two hours.

Within the meeting between those involved, Barcelona’s interest in the breakthrough striker was affirmed, while it was also confirmed that the La Liga giants would be submitting a bid for the player.

Despite the Sun reporting earlier this week that Haaland had the intention of securing the largest pay package in Premier League history, the feeling in Barcelona is that his salary will not be an issue.

Although the meeting with those involved at Barcelona is a huge step forward in confirming the intentions from the viewpoint of the La Liga club, it certainly doesn't rule out any other potential suitors - including Manchester City.

In fact, according to Fabrizio Romano, Mino Raiola will meet and talk with other 'top clubs' in the next weeks, while sources in England have also forwarded information over the past few weeks that officials at Manchester City have not only sanctioned a move for the player, but have also initiated contact with Erling Haaland's father.
