Chelsea have three Erling Haaland alternatives amid Barcelona talks
Real Madrid need Arsenal and Tottenham assistance in Haaland race
Erling Haaland transfer could be key to Mo Salah’s Liverpool future
Romano says Dortmund want at least £127.6m (€150m) which would represent a club-record fee for all of United, Chelsea, City and Real Madrid, although Barca spent around £142m to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool three years ago.
The discussions about the 20-year-old frontman come despite Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insisting he told agent Raiola that Haaland is not for sale.
“Yesterday I spoke to Mino Raiola. We’ve made our intentions very clear,” Zorc told Sky Germany.
It comes after comments last month in which Zorc said: “We will try to keep Erling Haaland as long as possible for sporting reasons.
“I have never seen someone like him. We can search Europe-wide. If he ever left us somewhere, there would only be a handful of clubs [who could sign him].”
United, Chelsea and City are all likely to sit down in the coming days and weeks to talk with Haaland’s representatives.
City have an open spot for a new star No 9 after announcing club legend Sergio Aguero will depart at the end of the season while United have Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani up top, with Chelsea having a host of attackers who can lead the line in Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.
