For months now, Erling Haaland has been on the radar of football giants and it is certain that the Norwegian will be one of the central figures of the summer transfer window, and the new one in the series of interested parties is Chelsea.
The London club, according to the Norwegian journalist and former football player Jan Age Fjortoft, is ready to set aside a significant amount of money for the phenomenal Borussia Dortmund striker, which was confirmed by the renowned Bild journalist Christian Falk.
The player, whose name is on the wish list of Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid, could easily change his club in the upcoming transfer window, which could bring the German club around 180,000,000 euros, which is estimated that the Millionaires would demand in the name of compensation.
The scorer of 49 goals in 52 matches in the season behind us, with high compensation, significantly reduced the options when it comes to interested parties, given that a very small number of clubs are ready to give up these amounts in times of financial crisis, but that's an insurmountable obstacle for many, not only for Roman Abramovich.
The Chelsea owner approved the offensive on the striker. The main problem of the current ruler of Europe could be the salary structure in the club, the fact that the Norwegian would already receive 165,000 euros a month, and that his appetites would not be satisfied by the currently highest salary in the London club of 198,000 European banknotes weekly.
That's how much Kai Havertz and Timo Werner earn. On the other hand, the type of player like Haaland has been marked as necessary in the new season for Chelsea to finally attack the Premier League title, and it is certain that the team from Stamford Bridge will do everything to bring a goal scorer if he has the key that the Blues are looking for from the season 2016/17.
And indeed, Chelsea needs a striker who could score 20+ goals per season. Timo Werner had a couple of good games last season, but when it comes to scoring goals, which is actually his main role, Werner was embarrassed to say the least.
Haaland would be the one who could score a large number of goals, and everyone in the club is aware of that, but also the competition in the form of other European giants. Chelsea will try, but it won't be easy at all. The scorer of 49 goals in 52 matches in the season behind us, with high compensation, significantly reduced the options when it comes to interested parties, given that a very small number of clubs are ready to give up these amounts in times of financial crisis, but that's an insurmountable obstacle for many, not only for Roman Abramovich.
