Chelsea 'confident of winning the race for Erling Braut Haaland'

Chelsea are confident of winning the race to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland, according to a report.

Chelsea are reportedly becoming increasingly confident of winning the race to sign Erling Braut Haaland despite the growing interest in the Borussia Dortmund striker.

The 20-year-old has scored 43 goals in 45 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 27 strikes in 27 outings during the 2020-21 campaign.

A number of clubs, including Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City, have been linked with the Norway international ahead of this summer's transfer window.

A £65m release clause in Haaland's contract will not come into play until next year, but it has been claimed that Dortmund's financial problems could see them sanction a move in the upcoming market.

A recent report claimed that Real Madrid view Man City as their main competition for the striker, but according to ESPN, senior figures at Chelsea feel that they can entice the youngster to join the club.

The Blues allegedly believe that the chance to lead the capital giants into a new era, in addition to a lucrative financial package, will be tempting for the Norwegian.

Dortmund's head of first-team football Sebastian Kehl recently insisted that the Bundesliga outfit are preparing for Haaland to be with the club next season.
