Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has played down reports of a switch to Chelsea. There were reports that Chelsea had made a player plus cash bid for the Norwegian but Haaland has maintained these are just rumours. The deal would have included Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-odoi going the other way. Haaland is currently with Dortmund in a pre season training camp in Switzerland.
“I don’t really have much to say about this,” borussia dortmund forward erling Haaland said. “I have three years left on my contract and I’m enjoying my time here (at Dortmund). Before yesterday, I didn’t speak to my agent in one month – I think you have the answer there. I don’t really care too much about that. It’s a lot of money – I hope it’s just rumours to be honest because that’s a lot of money for a person!”
chelsea struggled in front of goal last season despite winning th Champions League. Haaland is on top of their list but reports suggest the prospect of signing him is nearly impossible. Dortmund are determined to keep hold of their star man after losing Jadon Sancho. The Englishman joined Manchester United for a fee of £73m.
“I’ll always be grateful to Dortmund for giving me the opportunity to play first-team football, although I always knew that I would return to England one day,” Jadon Sancho said after completing his move to Manchester United. “The chance to join Manchester United is a dream come true and I just cannot wait to perform in the Premier League. This is a young and exciting squad and I know, together, we can develop into something special to bring the success that the fans deserve.”
