The transfer market is now open and there is plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Erling Haaland who has just come off the back of an amazing season in the German Bundesliga and Champions League. Borussia Dortmund’s young sensation is the most in-demand footballer in the world right now, with a host of European clubs chasing his signature.

The original plan was for Dortmund to keep hold of the Norway international until 2022, when a £66m buyout clause in his contract is due to kick in. But Haaland has made stunning progress at Signal Iduna Park since moving to Germany from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020, and Dortmund’s financial difficulties mean they may opt to cash in on him this summer. It is already clear that Haaland will not be short of suitors, and those who decide to sign the young star will have to spend around £154m.

The 20-year-old scored 27 goals in 28 appearances in the German Bundesliga last season, adding 10 more goals in only 8 appearances in the UEFA Champions League. His excellent performances also helped Borussia Dortmund clinch Champions League qualification for next season.

Dortmund would have almost certainly had to sell Haaland if they had missed out on the Champions League. Qualifying puts the German giants in a stronger position as they look to retain their prized asset.

However, some of the biggest clubs in Europe might not be deterred. But where might he end up if he does leave? We have looked at some of the top contenders, based on the odds provided by the best betting sites.


Fresh from a spending spree totalling more than £200m last summer, Chelsea are said to be interested in splashing more cash on Haaland. Timo Werner endured a difficult debut campaign at Stamford Bridge and has been deployed as an inside-forward. With Tammy Abraham pushing for an exit this summer, and Olivier Giroud having departed for AC Milan, it is easy to see why Chelsea would want to bring a striker to the club.

However, up until recently, the odds were suggesting that the transfer to Stamford Bridge is far from reality, but according to the latest news, Haaland is the Blues' top priority this summer. Because of that, the odds have seen a huge boost and currently are listed at 7/2 with Unibet. Now that Chelsea have won the Champions League, defeating Man City 1-0 in May, Haaland’s signature for the Blues seems a little more likely.

Manchester City

Manchester City have previously been the big market movers when it comes to signing Erling Haaland, with the English champions priced between 2/1 and 3/1 to capture a player who would make them even tougher to knock off their perch. While the north-west giants have also been linked with Harry Kane, it could be that they have their sights set on a player who is probably a better all-round player than his English counterpart.

It does appear as though City are now more likely to sign Kane over Haaland and a pursuit of the Norwegian might have to wait, with the bookies going as big as 7/1 that the English champions capture his signature.

Money shouldn't be an issue for Pep Guardiola's side when it comes to capturing the striker and there's the fact that his father Alf Inge Haaland used to operate for the Citizens which might give them an added advantage. It will be interesting to see whether more money comes for Man City landing the signature of this prized striker.

Real Madrid

At 5/1 with Paddy Power, Real Madrid are an attractive option, particularly as they are the destination of choice for so many world-class footballers. Karim Benzema is enjoying the best form of his career but he will turn 34 later this year, and Los Blancos are among the top favourites to sign Haaland this summer.

Money is thought to be tight at the Santiago Bernabeu, especially after the European Super League collapse. However, when Madrid want a player they tend to get him one way or another. For that reason, it could be worth a wager on Haaland ending up in the Spanish capital.

Manchester United

Manchester United’s greatest asset in this particular area is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who coached Haaland during his time in charge of Molde. The Red Devils, available at 10/1 with William Hill, attempted to sign the striker from Salzburg last year, but Haaland ultimately reasoned that a spell at Dortmund would be better for his development.

Edinson Cavani has inked a new one-year deal but Anthony Martial has struggled as a No.9 at times, so United could be on the lookout for another centre-forward. However, Solskjaer’s side are still considered a work in progress, and Haaland might prefer to join a club capable of winning the biggest prizes from the off.

Barcelona are ready to significantly boost their squad this summer to please the main man Lionel Messi if nothing else. At the same time, they will be keen to secure his successor for years to come.

For that reason, the Spanish giants are ready to sell two players, Martin Braithwaite and Philippe Coutinho, as they look to secure some additional funds to pursue the signing of Haaland this summer. But according to the bookies, Barcelona are outsiders to sign Haaland as he is offered at 16/1 with William Hill.


There is, of course, the option of staying at Dortmund for at least another season and indeed Unibet believe that is now almost certain to happen – they go 1/50 on the Norwegian staying at Signal Iduna Park beyond the 2021 summer transfer deadline.

Meanwhile, with Chelsea looking like the most serious suitors of Haaland’s signature, we asked former Blues forward Tore André Flo if his compatriot would have any trouble settling in to life at Stamford Bridge should his old club pull off the signing of the summer.

“I don’t think he would have much problem adapting to English football,” Flo told Bookies.co.uk.

“The culture over in England is quite similar and the way of living for someone coming from Norway would be quite easy, or at least it was for me. We all already speak the language quite well, so there should be no problem there.

“Obviously, on the pitch, it can be much tougher because it’s a very tough league, tougher than any other in the world I think. That is the biggest challenge for players coming from Scandinavia. But then that’s a challenge for most players coming to the Premier League from other countries.”

Chelsea could yet be blown out of the water if Real Madrid drop their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe in favour of Haaland. But wherever he ends up, Flo fully expects the 20-year-old to hit the ground running.

“I think pretty much any club would be a good fit for him because he’s an exceptionally good player and has scored a lot of goals,” said the former Norway international.

“He seems to just get better and better. With what he’s shown so far, especially in the Champions League against all types of very good opposition, he’s proven that he can score goals at any level.”

According to Sky Sports Germany, Chelsea are considering offering Dortmund Timo Werner as a makeweight in a big-money bid for Haaland, but Flo is reading little into the summer transfer rumour.

“I wasn’t aware that this was under discussion at all,” he said. “I would have thought Chelsea would give Werner a little bit more time, but that’s just my opinion. I think it’s just a rumor to be honest, I’m not sure how much is in it.”
