Chelsea are said to be targeting the prolific Norwegian talent who has started life In Bundesliga on a high note, scoring 35 goals in 35 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.
According to The Athletic, the Blues are willing to sign the BVB striker at the end of the season. Signing him would mean Chelsea will have to pay considerably more than what they paid (€80m + add ons) for their record signing, Kai Havertz.
Haaland’s release clause of €75m will only come into effect next year in 2022. Hence, Dortmund are likely to demand a much high transfer fee – somewhere in the region of €90-100m.
With top clubs such as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United, among many others already eyeing the prized asset – it would be in Chelsea’s best interests to begin negotiations immediately.
Dortmund might be unwilling to part ways with him, having acquired his services just over a year ago from RB Salzburg, but they might reconsider if a record-breaking offer emerges from Stamford Bridge.
