Chelsea Device Means Of Signing Erling Haaland Cheaper

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is reportedly keen on a move to Chelsea this summer.

The cost to sign Haaland would be in excess of £150 million, while the Norway international is also understood to be demanding a salary in the region of £300,000 a week.

Haaland has attracted interest from several clubs across Europe including Real Madrid, Manchester City, Barcelona and Manchester United.

But The Telegraph claim Haaland is ‘interested’ in a switch to Chelsea and is ‘attracted by the prospect’ of joining Thomas Tuchel’s side.

The report also claims that Chelsea are fully aware of the difficulty of signing the 20-year-old this summer and are considering the option of securing an agreement which would see Haaland delay his Dortmund exit until next year.

Dortmund, meanwhile, are adamant that the striker will remain with them for at least one more season.

Next summer, the striker will reportedly be available for €80m (£68.9m) due to a release clause in his contract.

The Champions League holders are also unlikely to be willing to lose both Haaland and Jadon Sancho, who is Manchester United’s top priority, in the same window.
