Erling Haaland move to Chelsea is still the one move many Blues fans and the World are still expecting to happen this summer and Fabrizio Romano gave his update.
The transfer news making headlines are all positive until Jadon Sancho made his move to Manchester United and now things have taken a new turn.
Fabrizio Romano has made some reports which he confirmed Chelsea will definitely sign a striker before the summer transfer window comes to a close with Haaland still a possibility.
Fabrizio Romano believes anything can happen but for now the deal remains complicated with Borussia Dortmund already losing one key player to Manchester United.
Thomas Tuchel is desperate to get a number nine ahead of next season, with them looking to play so many games in the first half of the campaign as they will need a proven goal scorer.
Timo Werner who was brought in by Frank Lampard to get the goals have failed to live up to expectations after a bright start to last campaign which saw him getting the job done.
Erling Haaland is now the target who could prove to be the man to get it done for Chelsea if only they could make a move happen this summer transfer window.
Here Is What Fabrizio Romano Had To Say;
“After selling Jadon Sancho, Dortmund are really relaxed. They are convinced they can do it and they can keep Haaland.
“If someone wants to sign Haaland this summer, Chelsea and other clubs, they will have to break the bank. It will be really, really difficult.
“His contract, you have to pay a huge salary if you want to sign him. Dortmund prefer to sell the player in one year and not right now.
“They want to enjoy Haaland. They don’t need money because they sold Sancho to Manchester United. They’re not in a rush. Haaland will be really, really complicated.”
Chelsea might be looking at an alternative if they fail to sign their target as Ivan Toney is already on their radar who might be a short term solution for then to make a move for the BVB man next summer.
