Erling Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, has said that only a maximum of 10 clubs in the world could afford his client, with four of them playing in the English Premier League.

"It is obvious that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential new future stars because it's so difficult to do what he does at his age at his level," Raiola told BBC Sport.

"He will be one of the future stars of the next decade because we see that stars such as Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Messi are coming to an age where everyone asks themselves: 'How long can we still enjoy them?' So everyone is looking for the new generation.

"Only a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] and give the platform you would like after you've been in Dortmund… and four of those clubs are in [England]."

According to Eurosport, Chelsea are growing increasingly confident that they will be able to sign the Norwegian star this summer.

Dortmund, however, will be reluctant to let Haaland go under any circumstances, as per Sport Bild, who has claimed that the 20-year-old has a release clause of more than €100 million.
