Haaland has become one of European football’s most sought-after prospects since moving to the Bundesliga in January 2020, scoring 37 goals in 37 games for Dortmund in all competitions.
Madrid remain confident that Haaland will end up in Spain, but Dortmund could be tempted to sell him at the end of the season if Chelsea offer a fee higher than the £66 million release clause that will become active in the summer of 2022.
The Blues are one of few clubs capable of forking out such a fee after the coronavirus pandemic took its toll on European football finances.
Alaba is also on the radar of the Stamford Bridge hierarchy. The Austria international’s contract will expire at the end of the season, when he will leave on a free transfer.
