Erling Haaland remains interested in a move to Chelsea either this summer or next.
The champions of Europe like their chances of signing the Norwegian international.
Unlike a majority of other big European clubs, the Blues are in a strong financial position. They earned roughly $200 million between their top 4 Premier League finish and the Champions League victory last season.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich rarely hesitates to pluck from the club treasure chest. He’s spent nearly two decades building one of the best European teams that has no problem attracting the world’s most elite players.
The Blues are also waiting to see if Dortmund are interested in 23-year-old star Tammy Abraham as part of negotiations.
According to Football.London, Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi could be sold to raise funds for Haaland.
Dortmund to sell their star striker?
Dortmund may find it hard to refuse a big-money deal from Chelsea. BVB placed a whopping €180 million ($212M) exit price on Haaland last March.
Only Chelsea and Manchester City — who denied interest in the 20-year-old goal-machine — can afford the player. “With these prices, we are not going to buy any striker. It is impossible, we cannot afford it,” said Guardiola late last season.
Former City player Alf-Inge Haaland, Erling’s father, prefers his son sign for the Sky Blues. But Alf-Inge is also open to a move to west London.
Should Haaland join Tuchel’s side, Chelsea potential attacking options heading into the 2021/22 season include Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, and Hakim Ziyech. That is some insane firepower.
