Borussia Dortmund attacker and Chelsea target Erling Braut Haaland is reportedly determined to continue his career at Real Madrid.
The 20-year-old’s long-term future is currently the subject of much speculation, with a host of clubs said to be determined to sign him during next summer’s transfer market.
Chelsea and Manchester United are both understood to want the Norway international, who was mentioned with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in January before ultimately joining BVB from Red Bull Salzburg.
Real Madrid have also been mentioned with the striker, though, and Los Blancos chief Zinedine Zidane revealed last week that he is an admirer of the Norwegian.
According to a report from ABC, Haaland has already decided that he wants to switch to the Bernabeu and is prepared to reject proposals from the Premier League in order to complete a move to Spain.
The former Bryne youngster, who has netted 21 times in 24 appearances for Lucien Favre’s side, can reportedly leave Dortmund for €75 million (£68m) in the summer of 2022.
Elsewhere, Chelsea’s search for shot-stoppers is nowhere near over.
As per reports, the west Londoners are still monitoring AC Milan Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and are planning to sign him in next summer’s transfer window.
The Blues were initially mentioned with the Italian this summer as they attempted to find a successor for the faltering Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Spain international had looked unsure on quite a few occasions under the sticks for the Blues last season and the Blues had been in touch with Gianluigi regarding a potential move.
