Chelsea are set to do business with Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola, after once insisting they would not deal with the Italian again.
The Blues thought they had a deal sewn up to re-sign another of Raiola’s clients in Romelu Lukaku in the summer of 2017.
However, the Belgian instead ended up moving to United.
After losing out to the Red Devils four years ago, Chelsea are set to go head-to-head with their Premier League rivals again in the race for Haaland.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel already has a variety of options in his squad to play the No 9 role.
