West London outfit Chelsea have learned that they will not be able to land their top target and Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as he favours a move to the Spanish la Liga outfit Real Madrid in the summer window.
According to ABC, the Borussia Dortmund striker has been attracting interest from several clubs across Europe with Man United also making an attempt to land his signature but he is more determined to join the Spanish La Liga giants by snubbing interests from the English Premier League, including Chelsea.
The 20-year-old is one of the hottest teenagers in Europe as he is attracting interest from several to[p clubs with a move away from the German Bundesliga outfit very likely in the next summer transfer window.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane had hinted earlier that he is a big fan of the 20-year-old and it has been reported that he has held talks with the player’s camp over a possible move as soon as the summer transfer window is opened again.
The Norwegian international found the back of the net 21 times in 24 games for the german Bundesliga outfit and he could be on his way but for a fee of £68 million with his contract expected to run out in 2022.
Real Madrid have identified a number of players including Liverpool target and Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe as possible signings for the summer transfer window as the club prepares for massive recruitment and reshuffling of the team.
However, the West London outfit will have to make move for other targets if they must bring in a new striker next season.
Manager Frank Lampard risks being sacked because of the inconsistent results from his team so far this season. An improvement is highly demanded by the club or he could be forced to leave earlier than expected.
