Erling Haaland wants Chelsea transfer as Marina Granovskaia sets out plan for mega deal

Erling Haaland is reportedly interested in a move to Chelsea this summer. Chelsea are in the market for a striker following their Champions League success last month.

Haaland is wanted by a host of top clubs in Europe following his stunning first full season at Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland scored 41 goals in as many games for Dortmund last term.

But Dortmund are standing firm in their stance that the 20-year-old is not for sale this summer.

However, that has not put off Chelsea’s attempts to sign him yet.

The Telegraph claims Haaland would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge if the Blues can broker a deal with Dortmund.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is exploring the option of signing Haaland when his release clause becomes active at the end of next season if they cannot secure him this summer.

Haaland could cost over £150million in the upcoming window.

However he could be available for between £65m and £86m in 2022 when his clause becomes active, which would allow more clubs to enter the race to sign him.
