It has been reported that Erling Haaland is set to leave Dortmund if they fail to secure a UCL spot this season and the Blues have been put on alert for a possible transfer.
Currently the German club sits 5th in the Bundesliga with a top 4 spot not yet guaranteed.
According to German news outlet Bild, a top source, Chelsea are now one of the favorites to sign Erling Haaland.
The report also adds that Barcelona has dropped out of the race despite a meeting with Mino Raiola and Erling’s father earlier this month.
The youngster has registered an impressive 25 goals in just 26 Bundesliga appearances this season and it’s likely Haaland is set to leave Dortmund if they fail to secure a UCL spot.
Meanwhile, the Norwegian striker is in high demand and is expected to command a transfer fee of at least £100million as well as wages of around £30m a year.
With these conditions, it’s difficult to imagine any club spending so much – however, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City are the 3 reported destinations for the youngster.
