Chelsea fans will love Erling Haaland’s response to Dortmund future amid Blues transfer links

Published

on

Chelsea have been provided some hope in their attempts to prise Erling Haaland away from Borussia Dortmund this summer, with the striker not ruling out a move.

Haaland, 20, has been heavily linked to take the striker’s role up at the Stamford Bridge club next season, with a lack of goals one of the only weaknesses in the Blues’ Champions League winning side.

The main stumbling block so far in negotiations is Borussia Dortmund’s stance on this potential deal.

Marco Rose’s side aren’t keen on selling two of their best players this summer, with the German side already agreeing a £73million deal to sell Jadon Sancho to Manchester United.

With this in mind, BVB are making it as hard as possible for Chelsea to attain the Norwegian International this summer and have therefore placed a £150m price tag on the 20-year-old.

Despite this, Abramovich and co have made it their personal missions to do what seems to be like a ‘mission impossible’ transfer in this window.

And Haaland’s latest actions have added fuel to the fire when it comes to the west Londoners’ attempts to complete this big deal.

The 20-year-old is currently away playing postseason friendlies with his International side Norway, and the Dortmund striker himself had to face the press.

Christian Falk of Sport Bild asked the striker a direct question about his future and more importantly about the links to Chelsea.

Falk’s tweet read: “We asked Erling Haaland: Are you staying at Borussia Dortmund, Mr. Haaland?.

“He smiled and said nothing”.

Keeping tight lipped can only be a good sign for Thomas Tuchel’s side as they look to strengthen the one area of the pitch that could potentially turn them into title challengers in the upcoming 2021/22 Premier League season.

Prior to this update coming out, Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol provided the latest on the Haaland situation.

“It’s going to be very difficult,” Solhekol told Sky Sports News. “It’s no secret that Chelsea want to sign a number nine this summer.

“And Erling Haaland is their number one target.”

He went on to add: “As far as Haaland is concerned, Borussia Dortmund are saying he is not for sale, even though he has this release clause in his contract which means he could leave next summer for about £75m.

“Now some of the biggest clubs like Chelsea are thinking that they could steal a march on their rivals this summer by offering Dortmund more than that release clause.

“Maybe that will tempt Dortmund to sell him.

“But of course, Borussia Dortmund are saying he’s not for sale, and once more we’ve already raised £73m by agreeing to sell Jadon Sancho to Manchester United.

“But still Chelsea are interested and still want to sign him.

“We’ve spoken to someone who’s involved in the deal, and he said it’s going to be very difficult.

“He said at the moment, it looks like ‘mission impossible’ but Chelsea are trying.

“It’s unlikely but who knows- it could still happen.”

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
