According to various reports, it is clear that the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to make a move for the Norwegian footballer as well as the striker of Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland. Chelsea has already released funds for this move.
Performance by Erling Haaland
Haaland is among the young generation, and he is just 20 years of age. Borussia Dortmund signed him in the previous year in January 2020, and he didn’t disappoint his club. He took the German footballing scenes by storm and netted 41 goals out of his 41 appearances during the campaign of 2020-21. By his talent, many top football clubs were alerted. In the upcoming campaign, Chelsea’s target is signing Erling Haaland.
Other Clubs in the run
Besides Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester City have also shown their interest in Erling Haaland. However, it is Chelsea who has shown the greatest desire to sign the Norwegian. They have demanded a greater price for him. The significant reason behind this is that Oliver Giroud is likely to leave the club, and Tammy Abraham will probably miss out.
On the other hand, both Kai Havertz and Timo Werner were not up to the mark in their last season. Even they were not that prolific in front of the goal as well. Hence Chelsea can add a top-quality player, and at present Haaland is a terrific option for the same. He would be a dream signing for the club, and he is expected to seek out most of Chelsea’s problems at present.
Will Chelsea be able to sign Haaland?
Haaland has brilliantly performed for Dortmund and the club probably won’t give away him. They stated earlier that he is not for sale. But Chelsea’s bid of 150 million euros, could somehow change their mind.
