Chelsea set to make opening £78m bid for 23-goals forward

By | February 23, 2021

Chelsea are reportedly considering to make a £78m move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland in the summer.

The 20-year-old is enjoying an outstanding season with Dortmund, scoring 23 goals from just 21 appearances in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

Dortmund will be powerless to keep hold of the Norway international if any team activates a release clause which goes live in 2022.

However, according to WinSports, the Blues are determined to win the race for the emerging star by signing him at the end of the campaign.

While the alleged fee being considered by the West London club is above Haaland’s price tab, Dortmund are believed  to wait for higher offers with Man City and Real Madrid also keeping tabs on the situation.

Dortmund have previously insisted that they have little interest in parting ways with Haaland until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Chelsea also considering move for Halland’s teammate Jadon Sancho who has been rumoured with a departure from Signal Iduna park ahead of 2021/22 season. however, they will face stiff competition from their arch rivals Liverpool and Manchester United.
