Chelsea were among the clubs to be linked with Norwegian wonderkid Erling Haaland, but the young striker eventually made his way to Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg.

Chelsea are likely to suffer another blow in our pursuit of Norwegian sensational striker Erling Haaland as the player’s father Alf-Inge has claimed his son is perfectly suited to play in the La Liga at some point in his career, hinting that he might never move to the Premier League.

“I am very happy for him and Borussia Dortmund, although for me the most important thing is to keep growing as before,” the former City and Leeds defender said in an interview with Madrid-based publication Diario AS.

“He was always a top scorer, but he also gives many assists. Obviously, I am proud. Dortmund told us that they needed someone like him and that the goal is as high as possible. He is a team that fights for the Bundesliga and is growing in European competitions. It is perfect to continue training.

“We were linked to more than 100 teams, but it is true that the Spanish is a very good league for my son, with great teams.

“You never know if he will play in Spain. What has to happen, will happen.”

The 19-year-old has taken his exceptional form to Dortmund and has scored 12 goals in nine appearances for the German side since then.
