Chelsea, Man City battle over Haaland


Chelsea and Manchester City have reportedly ‘made a move’ to sign Borussia Dortmund marksman Erling Haaland in the summer.

Valued at around £150million by the Bundesliga outfit, the 20-year-old has no shortage of admirers following another stunning season.

The Norway international has banged in 31 goals in 29 games in all competitions this term, and is the Champions League’s top scorer with ten strikes.

Despite boasting a release clause of £65m in his contract that becomes active in 2022, clubs are queuing up to sign him in the upcoming transfer window.

And according to Mundo Deportivo, Premier League giants Chelsea, as well as Manchester City, have already begun the task of trying to secure his services.

It was reported earlier this month that the Blues were increasingly confident of nabbing Haaland.

Though German news outlet Sport BILD have declared that the West Londoners have ‘no chance’ of being able to capture him.

But they are understood to face stiff competition in the race to snap him up with Real Madrid and Barcelona both eyeing up a possible move.

Manchester United are also claimed to be an interested party, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identifying Haaland as well as Harry Kane as possible targets.

Haaland could even end up staying in Germany, with Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick failing to rule out a move for the striker.

Asked about the possibility of Haaland replacing Robert Lewandowski, he told Sky Germany: “Very, very much is possible in life.

“Nothing can be ruled out, but that is a long way off.

“He has a long-term contract in Dortmund and is an option for many top clubs.”

Haaland earlier this week became the youngest player to rack up 20 goals in the Champions League, as he hit the landmark in just 14 matches.
