Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland ‘can imagine’ playing at Chelsea or Manchester City in future, but a move is ‘unlikely’ this summer.

That’s according to Sport 1, who cover the striker’s future amid numerous reports about interest in him from the Premier League.

Haaland has been heavily linked with a move away from Dortmund after another impressive season in the Bundesliga, in which he scored 41 goals in 41 games in all competitions.

Chelsea and Manchester City are thought to be particularly keen as they look to add an elite level striker to their squad this summer.

Initially, it was suggested that Haaland wouldn’t be interested in the move to Stamford Bridge, but it appears that is not the case, with Sport 1 reporting that he can ‘imagine a future’ there.

It’s the same story for Manchester City and Real Madrid, but a move this summer is considered ‘unlikely’.

Part of the reason, according to Sport 1, is Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United, which has ‘affected’ Haaland.

He would have loved to play alongside Sancho in Dortmund for another year, and his departure has left him a little sad and seemingly wanting to stay where he is for the time being.

Like Sancho, Haaland is ‘ambitious’, but the comparisons end there, with the striker seeing ‘no reason to leave this summer’.

It seems City and Chelsea could be frustrated in any efforts they make, then, despite the fact Haaland can see himself joining either club.
