With all the speculations surrounding the Borussia Dortmund star, Erling Haaland move to Stamford bridge, Chelsea are still confident of signing the striker, according to Ian McGarry.

Ian McGarry stated that the Blue are willing to include Tammy Abraham in a swap deal that will convince the German outfit to release the player.

Erling Haaland is widely known to be one of the most promising young attacking talents, having scored 27 goals and made six assists in the Bundesliga for Dortmund last season. He is the top target for Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel this summer.

Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, McGarry said: “We reported six weeks ago that Abraham would be one of the players included in a potential deal for Haaland.

“It’s also our understanding that Abraham has had a conversation with Thomas Tuchel regarding his future at the club.

“Tuchel has been less than reassuring with regards to his chances of game-time in the coming season.

“That being the case, Abraham has a decision to make – to leave the club in a transfer or on loan and get game-time because he has played only twice in the Premier League since mid-February. He clearly isn’t fancied by the German coach.

“With [Olivier] Giroud going to Milan, Chelsea have been left with [Michy] Batshuayi and [Timo] Werner as recognised number nines, neither of whom are fancied by Tuchel.So they are confident Haaland will come in.

“We’ve reported that the wages for Haaland have been signed off by Abramovich. It’s now just of agreeing a fee with Dortmund. Dortmund are playing hard-ball.

“Chelsea are confident they can get the deal done because Dortmund don’t want to lose the player and lose around €40m to €50m in value as it stands.”

Timo Werner could be swapped with reports that Chelsea will not mind losing him in the deal.

Haaland turns 21 this week and understands that he still has plenty of time in his career to complete a big-money move to the Premier League or elsewhere, hence a stay at German is his thought for now.
