Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland will be arguably the most sought after footballer in the world this summer but a transfer to Chelsea doesn’t look likely.
According to Bild, Haaland doesn’t rate Chelsea as one of the top teams in Europe and the 20-year-old will only be interested in joining a small list of teams.
Haaland reportedly doesn’t rate Chelsea among the very best sides in Europe and he will only join one of six clubs: Juventus, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Barcelona or Real Madrid.
This news will come as quite a shock to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich who is said to be very keen to being Haaland to Stamford bridge.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb , the Russian is prepared to plunge another £260million into the club, with Haaland said to be top of his wish list.
Unfortunately for the Chelsea owner it seems there is something money can’t buy and other clubs will be more than happy to snatch up the prolific striker.
Haaland has banged in 29 goals in 27 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side this season and he’s among Europe’s most consistent strikers.
It’s been widely reported that the Borussia Dortmund striker will be available to buy in the summer of 2022 for £65million but a new report suggests that figure isn’t quite accurate.
According to BILD, the 20-year-olds release clause fee is closer to £86.5million which would bring the value of the Norwegian over the €100million mark.
Luckily for Dortmund Manchester City were already prepared to pay the new asking price after it was reported by the Daily Mirror that Pep Guardiola’s side were willing to offer a whopping £100million for Haaland.
Manchester United are also in the race for the Norwegian’s signature with the Red Devils boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer saying he keeps ‘in touch’ with his fellow countryman.
‘I keep in touch with Erling – it is great to see him become the player he has become. He is a Dortmund player and we wish him well there. Let’s see what life will bring later on.’ said Solskjaer according to the Daily Mail.
One thing is for certain, Haaland will most likely be on the move and the battle for his services is sure to be an interesting one.
