Transfer News: Blow for Chelsea as Erling Haaland agrees terms with Real Madrid

According to transfer news from Daily Star, Chelsea have received a blow in their chase for Erling Haaland. It looks as if Real Madrid have taken a huge step in the chase for Haaland as they have agreed on personal terms with the Borussia Dortmund striker.

The Blues have shown tremendous interest in the player along with the rest of the elite European clubs such as Manchester United and Real Madrid, meaning that they will have to stump up heavy cash to land him. The Norwegian is arguably the hottest prospect in the world right now and has impressed heavily at Borussia Dortmund.

He does have a release clause that gets activated in the summer of 2022 but a host of clubs want a deal this year itself, none more than Chelsea, who have a striker problem on their hands. Timo Werner has struggled to find goals. Tammy Abraham cannot seem to get a game and Giroud is on the wrong side of 30.

Now, it looks as if one club has taken the lead in the race for Haaland. It has been claimed that Real Madrid have all but signed the Norwegian starlet. He is said to have a ‘total agreement’ with the Spanish giants. It’s not really clear as to what they have agreed on at this point.

It does come as a setback for Chelsea, who have been after the player for a while now. However, this ‘total agreement’ could mean several things. For now, nothing is official and Chelsea are still in with a chance but they will have to step up their efforts.
