Haaland’s amazing goalscoring record of 76 goals in his last 74 matches in all competitions for the Bayern Munchen and former side RB Salzburg has attracted major interest from clubs around Europe. The likes of Man City, Chelsea, United, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been linked with the 20-year-old.
The Sun reports that Manchester City and Chelsea are already making moves for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
There will be competition for his signature, with the player rated at £150 million despite him being available for £65 million next summer.
Manchester City have the finances to beat any other club to his signature, with the possible exception of Paris Saint-Germain. It appears that he is destined to leave this summer, and City, in particular, need a new striker given the exit of Sergio Aguero, assuming he doesn’t sign a new deal.

Barcelona put five players up for sale to beat City and Chelsea to Erling Haaland
Barcelona are also keen on Erling Haaland, says Spanish newspaper Marca. Joan Laporta wants to sign the forward, and will sacrifice Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, Martin Braithwaite, Junior Firpo and Antoine Griezmann to raise funds.
Haaland is Laporta’s biggest obsession
Laporta wants to build a young team around Messi. The President believes he can make it happen. He intends to create financial bonds that will allow him liquidity as soon as possible despite the club’s large debts.

If Barcelona sign Haaland then they would finally have a player who could help them move on from Lionel Messi, while convincing the Argentine to stay on for a year or two longer.
He has produced 47 goals and 11 assists in 47 matches so far in all competitions in the 2020-2021 season.
Bayern transfer interest in Haaland confirmed by Hansi Flick
The big surprise could be for Haaland to end up staying in Germany, with Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick failing to rule out a move for the striker.
His manager Flick was asked about Haaland one day replacing Lewandowski, with a deal far from out the picture.
Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick admits he “cannot rule anything out” concerning the prospect of the club signing Erling Haaland in the future.

He told Sky Germany before the game: “Very, very much is possible in life; nothing can be ruled out.
“But that is a long way off. He has a long-term contract in Dortmund and is an option for many top clubs.”
Bayern prized Lewandowski away from their rivals in 2014, having also done the same with Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels.
Haaland, earlier this week, became the youngest player to rack up 20 goals in the Champions League, as he hit the landmark in just 14 matches.
