Chelsea ‘Confident’ Of Agreeing Massive Summer Deal For Borussia Dortmund Sensation Erling Haaland
Chelsea are said to be confident of landing Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland in a mega move this summer.
Haaland is courting interest from a plethora of Europe’s leading clubs after smashing in 41 goals in as many games for Dortmund in all competitions last term.
Given he’s still only 20 and has potential to improve even further, Haaland won’t come on the cheap and £170 million is the extortionate fee being talked about.
But according to Haaland’s fellow Norwegian Jan Aage Fjortoft, Chelsea are hopeful of bringing him to Stamford Bridge and feel they can afford him.
The Champions League winners see Haaland as the man who can fire them to the Premier League title under Thomas Tuchel and are working hard to get a deal done.
The hefty price tag isn’t the main stumbling block, instead it’s more that the deal would not be in line with Chelsea’s current wage structure and that could cause some disruption amongst the squad.
Re: Erling Haaland
Chelsea working intense to get Erling Haaland.
He is seen as the “missing” player to make them challenge for the PL-title next season.
Fee very high, but confidence that this can be solved.
The main obstacle could be the wage-structure at Chelsea
