It has been reported multiple times that Chelsea retain a strong interest in signing Erling Haaland this summer despite Borussia Dortmund’s reported unwillingness to sell their talisman this summer.
Although there is now a new update on the slow-moving transfer saga – according to journalist Duncan Castles, but still Haaland ‘expects to join Chelsea’ before the new season begins.
Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, Duncan claims that ‘talks are advancing’, but his agent Mino Raiola wants to insert a release clause in his contract at Chelsea, something they are not willing to do.
At the end of the day, it will all come down to how badly Chelsea want to sign Haaland this summer.
Talks have been going on since the start of June, Castles add.
However, We must mention that Castles is a semi-reliable source – he does get things right for Manchester United, but this is Chelsea news and we have to wait and see if we get more reports on the same.
