Having scored 30+ goals this season, Erling Haaland has become the most sought after player in Europe.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are also being linked with a move for the record 20-year-old Champions League scorer.

Haaland has a release clause of £60m that can be triggered in the summer of 2022, but clubs will be keen to fight for his signature before the release clause can be triggered.

According to reports, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has decided to change a policy in order to sign Haaland, as the Blues are genuinely in need of a top striker.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is keen to see Haaland play for Chelsea, even if it means doing business with controversial agent Mino Raiola.

Chelsea fell out with Raiola over Romelu Lukaku transfer back in 2017, as he ended up signing for rivals Manchester United in 2017.

At the time, Chelsea believed they had won the race to sign Lukaku, but were not impressed with how the deal was hijacked, with the help of Raiola.

It isn’t just Chelsea who have a poor relationship with Mino Raiola, as the agent has a more terrible reputation at Old Trafford, after his actions with Paul Pogba has caused controversy. However, Rio Ferdinand has advised that the club must dance with the devil in order to sign Haaland.

Ferdinand said: “Sometimes you’ve got to dance with the devil. Because when a player like Haaland comes around, that’s 10 years’ service.”
