Chelsea fans have received the updates on the transfer of the goal machine from Borussia Dortmund to Stamford Bridge.
According to Express, a piece of transfer news has emerged that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is bent on signing Erling Haaland. The Russian billionaire wants to pip Manchester United to the signing of Haaland, who is one of the most coveted youngsters in Europe.
It has not even been two seasons but the Norwegian hitman has taken Europe by storm with his goal-scoring exploits. In 48 outings for Dortmund, he has scored 47 goals.
It was Manchester United who tried to sign the player from Salzburg before he joined Dortmund. However, they are still keen on a deal for him. Despite Manchester United keeping tabs on the youngster, Chelsea could come into the fray as Roman Abramovich has personally taken it upon himself to get a deal done.
Haaland is said to admire Real Madrid while there are family ties with Man City due to his father playing for them. There’s also interest from Manchester United and Liverpool. PSG, Barcelona and Juventus are the other European sides to take an interest in the sensational forward.
However, Abramovich plans to offer Dortmund a staggering fee, something that they won’t be able to turn down. He intends to steal a march on the potential suitors for Haaland despite the issues they have with his agent Mino Raiola.
Chelsea were left with a sour taste after Lukaku joined Man United when it was believed that he would be heading to Chelsea.
