CHELSEA have reportedly been given the green light to sign Erling Haaland but Borussia Dortmund doubt he will fancy a move to the Blues.

Stamford Bridge chiefs are believed to have given new boss Thomas Tuchel the go-ahead when it comes to launching a bid for Haaland, according to Bild.

Haaland's incredible goalscoring record of 43 goals in 43 games for Borussia Dortmund has put Europe's top clubs on red alert.

The 20-year-old has a £65million release clause that comes into force in 2022.

But reports suggest any clubs that want to sign the striker this summer will have to pay £150m to land their man.

The report states Chelsea are prepared to cough up over £87m for the player amid talk Frank Lampard's successor will be handed a £260m transfer warchest.

Tuchel could poach the prolific Norwegian striker from his old side Dortmund - just four years after a falling out saw him leave the German club.

The 47-year-old replaced Liverpool-bound Jurgen Klopp at Signal Iduna Park in 2015 and won the German Cup during his time at the helm.

But Bild suggests Tuchel would anger Dortmund chiefs Hans-Joachim Watzke - who sacked him in 2017 after saying he was 'worn out' from dealing with his antics - and Michael Zorc as well as the club's fans if he was the man to lure their prized asset away.
