Football rumours: Will Chelsea finally land Erling Haaland?


What the papers say

Erling Haaland‘s future is again on the table, with Chelsea linked with a huge bid for Norway’s rising superstar, according to 90 Min. The Blues are said to be willing to part with up to £150million in the belief it will be an offer the so-far stubborn Borussia Dortmund simply cannot refuse. Chelsea are still keen for a striker this year despite spending some £120m to secure Timo Werner and Kai Havertz for last year’s campaign.

Richarlison could be following manager Carlo Ancelotti from Everton to Real Madrid, ESPN reports. The Brazil forward shone under the Italian at Goodison Park, and Real are now set to look into the possibility of a bid for the 24-year-old. Richarlison, who cost Everton £50m when they bought him from Watford in 2018, could fit Real’s price range, with the Spanish giants keen to shop wisely due to the costs of renovating the Bernabeu.
