Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has Ordered club director Marina Granovoskaia to table £130m for Erling Haaland
Chelsea are lining up a bid of £130 million for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, according to reports.
The 20-year-old has returned to Germany for the preseason as the German club looks to retain the player, but talks about his future remain high amid interest from Chelsea, which sees signing the striker as the club’s priority for this summer.
As per Football Insider, Chelsea are ready to submit a £130 million straight cash bid to lure the player to London this summer.
Roman Abramovich is willing to pay the £130m and the Blue will turn to alternatives if they cannot secure Haaland for this amount.
Dortmund have already rejected a proposal including Tammy Abraham and with the Blues unwilling to offer Timo Werner in a deal, a straight cash offer will be made.
The striker’s agent Mino Raiola and father Alfie Haaland are aware of ‘concrete interest’ from Chelsea this summer as Dortmund are preparing for a big offer for Haaland this summer.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will attempt to persuade the Norwegian to Chelsea this year and it is alleged that Dortmund will charge a whopping £150 million fee should he leave this summer, so the Blues are looking to put Dortmund’s resolve to the test with a bid of £ 130 million.
The transfer saga will continue as the Blues look for a way to seal the forward’s signature this summer as Thomas Tuchel seeks reinforcements for his Champions League-winning team for next season.
