Latest on Erling Haaland Chelsea transfer news £112m deal, Personal term agreed, Real Madrid stance 1 Sportelo

The future of Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland  is one of the most talked about topics in football right now.

Having enjoyed an exciting 2020/21 campaign, scoring 41 goals in 41 appearances, Haaland is the subject of interest from several European heavyweights, including Chelsea.

The Blues are desperate to add a new striker to their ranks this summer and Haaland, despite also being linked to Tottenham Hotspur and England ace Harry Kane, is the club’s main target.

However, Chelsea are not the only ones dreaming of adding Haaland to their ranks this summer, with the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid also interested in signing him.

With that in mind, here is a round-up of all the very latest on Haaland’s future and Chelsea’s interest in his services.

Chelsea ‘agrees’ personal terms with Haaland
The west London team has reportedly agreed personal terms with the forward. That’s according to journalist Ian McGarry on Transfer Window Podcast.

While that’s a big step forward in their attempts to sign the leader this summer, both clubs now have to agree on a fee, which is easier said than done.

Blues makes bid for Haaland
And if the reports that personal terms have been agreed are true, Chelsea fans will be delighted to hear that they have moved for Haaland.

According to a report by Italian journalist Ekrem Konur, Chelsea has submitted an offer for Dortmund hit man Erling Haaland. The report suggests that the European champions have offered £60 million as well as current blues forward Tammy Abraham in exchange for a cut.

Haaland drops major transfer hint
In other positive news, the 20-year-old admitted that he doesn’t want to get too comfortable in his career.

In an interview with Icon magazine, cited by The Telegraph, he said: “I have been taking a couple of steps over the past few years and I think they have been good steps for me, personally, to get out of my comfort zone and to develop even more.

“I want to challenge myself in everything that I do. It’s something I think about. It’s also for everyone to always do this. People can sometimes be too comfortable staying in their ‘zone’ so I think it’s important to get out of that.”

Haaland went on to confess his biggest dream in football, which is to win Europe’s biggest competition, something Chelsea just did and may repeat anytime soon.

“That’s my big dream,” he said. “To win the Champions League one day. Hopefully I can lift that trophy and that really would be, well, amazing.”

Bayern Munich position
Bayern Munich will not seek a move for Haaland this summer, CEO Oliver Kahn revealed a few months ago.

The German club is not in a strong enough financial position to contemplate launching a move, which means it is one less opponent for Chelsea to think about.

“A package costing, as we have heard, more than 100 million euros is unimaginable for FC Bayern at the moment,” he said when speaking to Sport Bild earlier in the year.3

Madrid at the wheel
According to reports from Spain, Real Madrid have taken a giant step forward in their efforts to sign Haaland.

The Spanish giants are claimed to have a ‘full agreement’ in personal terms with the Norwegian international, but remain without a transfer fee agreement with Dortmund.

The German giants are likely to want around £ 150 million for their services, but Madrid are currently facing a financial crisis, which means the likelihood of hiring him at such a high price seems unlikely.

Given that Chelsea is certainly no stranger to spending huge amounts of money on big-name firms, finding £112 million to lure Haaland to West London might be more than possible for the Blues.
