I understand Chelsea are preparing a “BIG offer” to check out and challenge Dortmund’s “he will stay here next season”.
The understanding is that Dortmund won’t say no to 175 million euro

This could be a major statement by Chelsea if they pull it off, with the west London giants clearly keen to build on their Champions League success last season.
The Blues have been superb since Thomas Tuchel took over as manager at Stamford Bridge, and Haaland could be the next piece of the puzzle for the club as they look to establish themselves as more serious Premier League title contenders.
Chelsea could do with a signing like Haaland after disappointing performances from Timo Werner and Kai Havertz for much of last season, with more fire-power clearly needed at the club.
With 41 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions last season, the Norway international is one of the best attacking players in the world, and at the age of just 20, he is surely only going to continue to keep getting better and better.
