Mikel Arteta and Edu already have a plan to stop Chelsea from signing Erling Haaland

Erling Braut Haaland is one of the most sorted out young forward In the World currently.

The Borussia Dortmund Norwegian forward struck twice against Sevilla in the Champions League, gifting his side the edge in qualifying for the next round. The brace took his goal haul to 25 goals from 24 matches this season and will definitely be a contender in the Balon D’or battle in the future over the next decade.

The 20-year-old player has attracted many suitors, around the world, with Chelsea rumoured to be one of the favourites.

However, their London rivals Arsenal might have gotten a way to prevent the transfer from happening.

Real Madrid is also interested in the player signature, for the replacement of Karim Benzema in the centre forward position.

However, due to the COVID-19 financial impacts on the Spanish Champions, a deal is likely impossible to agreed, since the player is valued at £100m.

Arsenal has two of Real Madrid players on loan, and report suggest the Gunners would love to keep both players permanently, helping the Los Blancos team to fund the transfer for the forward, ensuring Chelsea doesn’t get the hand on the player.

“He certainly has all the qualities and characteristics that we are looking for for that position,” said Arteta ahead of his side’s 0-0 draw against Manchester United.

“Then it will be down to two things. First of all, how well he adapts here and how much of an impact he can have in our team.

“Secondly, what Real Madrid and the player think about it because he’s owned by Real Madrid and the player has a big say in that too.”

“You never know what is going to happen, but for now I am just focusing on doing my best this season and helping the team as much as possible,” he said after his full debut on Sunday.
