Chelsea “have no chance” of signing Erling Haaland as the forward reduces the options for his next potential club to six.
The 20-year-old is a target of the Blues, along with Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United, but he is said to have ruled out moving to Stamford Bridge.
Haaland has scored an incredible 33 goals in 31 appearances for the club and the country this season, with ten European clubs interested and able to sign him, according to Mino Raiola.
But according to Sport Bild, Haaland has now narrowed the potential group down to six clubs, with Liverpool, City and United joined by Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus on the suitor list.
The report claims that Haaland only wants to join ‘an absolute top club’, which leaves Chelsea in the lurch.
This will come as a disappointment to Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, who was reportedly desperate to get the Norwegian “at all costs” as part of another transfer spree this summer.
According to transfermarkt Haaland’s value is £100 million, with an exit clause (which appears to change daily between a low of £70 million and a high of £90 million) not going into effect until the summer of 2022.
