Manchester City and Chelsea could lose out on Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as a number of his entourage have misgivings about him moving to the Premier League, according to Eurosport‘s Dean Jones.
The journalist reports that the 20-year-old could potentially snub a switch to England if he feels he isn’t ready to play in this country:

Haaland is thought to be City’s main target to strengthen their forward line in the summer. Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez was also being looked at but the Manchester club now believe he is set to sign a new contract to stay in Italy.
The Citizens’ chances of signing Haaland could, though, be boosted by news coming out of Germany. It is being reported that Dortmund may have to put the Norwegian international up for sale in the summer if they don’t qualify for the Champions League. The Bundesliga club are currently sixth in the table; four points off the top four.
