Chelsea are ready to enter the race to sign Real Madrid and Manchester City are targeting Erling Braut Haaland in the summer.
Chelsea is willing to pay more than the stipulated price to avoid the interest of Real Madrid and Manchester City.
Haaland has been impressive since moving to the Bundesliga, scoring 12 goals in 11 Bundesliga appearances this season.
The 20-year-old attacker has piqued the interest of Real Madrid and Manchester clubs with Chelsea ready to beat any rival to the Norwegian’s signature.
Haaland has a £ 66.6 million buyout clause, which is a problem for clubs vying for his signature, but the report in Athletic, Chelsea is trying to get ahead of its rivals by offering a gigantic fee next summer, a year before the termination clause goes into effect.
The west London club will “ do their best ” to lure him to Stamford Bridge and is poised to break his transfer record, with a fee of over £ 100 million likely needed to get him away from Dortmund.
The Bundesliga club wants to keep Haaland as long as possible, even if that means losing him for a lower fee in 2022 and will therefore demand a massive price to let him go a year earlier.
Chelsea will have to go a long way to persuade Hala and for him to join the Stamford Bridge squad, the Borussia Dortmund striker has his mind set on a move to Real Madrid to team up with Martin Odegaard in the Spanish capital.
