Chelsea one of the teams still chasing Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland’s incredible career continued tonight with two goals for Dortmund away at Seville in the Champions League.

The striker’s trajectory is pretty mind blowing – on a level with Kylian Mbappe if not above. How long Dortmund can hold on to him is questionable, and while they won tonight, they’ve dropped far off the pace in the Bundesliga.

The Athletic took the occasion of his latest exploits to remind us all that Chelsea are interested in signing him. Well – that shouldn’t surprise anyone. Every team in the world would sign Haaland if they could, they question is if they can.

They cite the €75m release clause that the forward has in his contract from summer 2022. That makes him affordable for plenty of clubs, and it will be down to him to take his pick.

A lot of serious bidders will have been hit harder by coronavirus than Chelsea, and we would keep very close attention to developments in the next 6 months.
