‘Total agreement’ reached, as Chelsea, Man Utd target Haaland makes his move

According to reports, Chelsea and Manchester United target Erling Haaland have reached a ‘total agreement with his next club.

The 20-year-old Norwegian superstar is one of Europe's most sought-after footballers. Since joining Borussia Dortmund, Haaland has averaged a little under a goal per game. In his most recent season, he struck out 41 times in 41 at-bats. The heavy hitters, predictably, took notice, but it now appears that a Bundesliga exit may be closer than many expected.

Chelsea and Manchester United appeared to be leading the race for his signature in England.

Man United's urgent need was alleviated significantly when Edinson Cavani agreed to extend his contract for another year. Purchasing Haaland, on the other hand, would be a longer-term investment that would guarantee him the No. 9 places for the next decade, regardless of where he goes.

Chelsea is looking for a clinical center striker to help them solve their offensive problems. Thomas Tuchel's Blues team is thriving. Timo Werner, on the other hand, failed to impress in his first year in England. Kai Havertz was frequently used as a false nine as a result of this.

Both teams, though, are expected to drop out, according to famous Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla of SportItalia.

That's because they claim Real Madrid and the marksman have achieved a "complete accord" on personal conditions.

Haaland is committed to taking the next step in his career in Spain, but getting Dortmund to sell remains a challenge.

Man United supporters are well aware that this is no easy assignment. Their search for Jadon Sancho has been going on for more than a year.

Dortmund has demonstrated that they will not be bullied by anyone in the market, and according to the report, they are asking €175 million before approving his sale. Despite extensive allegations of a 'open secret' that Haaland can leave for less than half that sum in a year, the situation remains unchanged.

Real is said to be only willing to bid slightly more than €100 million. Clearly, this tale has the potential to go on forever.

Meanwhile, Antonio Rudiger is said to be anxious to extend his career at Chelsea, although the club has yet to initiate contract extension discussions with him.

The Germany defender's contract expires in 2022, and he recently made headlines for what appeared to be a "nibble" on Paul Pogba at Euro 2020.

The 28-year-old, on the other hand, has told Thomas Tuchel that he wants to stay in the city. According to Sky Sports, Rudiger is "dedicated to staying at Chelsea."

The club's intentions, on the other hand, do not appear to be the same. The Blues have yet to begin contract negotiations with the defender.

It's unclear whether Tuchel intends to keep the seasoned defender in his long-term plans. There is currently no indication that the player will be offered a new contract.

Tottenham is still interested in the German international, according to the Daily Mirror, who has started both of their Euro 2020 games.
