Chelsea are submitting a £130million bid for Erling Haaland after the green light from Roman Abramovich, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Champions League holders have discussed multiple player-plus-cash options with Borussia Dortmund as they continue plans to lure the 21-year-old.
A Chelsea source has told Football Insider that the club have now lined up a straight cash offer of £130m for Haaland.
That is believed to be the highest Abramovich is willing to go for what would be a British-record deal.
The mega-rich owner has vowed to bankroll a mega-money centre-forward move as he looks to build on last season’s Champions League triumph.
The club are working on deals for Haaland, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku.
