Chelsea lead race for Haaland as he demands £500,000-a-week to leave BVB

Chelsea are leading the race for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Haaland wants over £500,000-a-week when he leaves Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

The Norwegian appears likely to leave the Bundesliga ahead of next summer due to a £64million release clause in his current deal.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed earlier this week the club are 'talking regularly' about the potential of signing the striker, while Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid are also believed to be in the hunt.

ESPN says whichever club wins the race to the 21-year-old Norway international if he decides to depart Signal Iduna Park in 2022 will have to pay him £30m per year.

And Chelsea - who lost first-choice strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner to injury on Wednesday - are the latest frontrunners following Tuchel's comments this week.
