Chelsea to sign Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland for £170 million

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea has begun talks to recruit Borussia Dortmund attacker Erling Haaland this summer. Though, the Blues will have to pay a whopping £170 million to capture their top target.

The European champions are well aware that luring Haaland away from Dortmund will be difficult. The German club has stated unequivocally that their star striker will not be sold this summer. On the other hand, Chelsea is still eager to entice Dortmund with a massive £170 million offer, making Haaland the most expensive player in Premier League history.

To sweeten the deal, Chelsea is also willing to include Tammy Abraham. Abraham is a target for Borussia Dortmund, who regard him as a potential replacement for Erling Haaland.

The agreement to sign Haaland, on the other hand, will not be cheap. Erling Haaland will demand a weekly wage of £300,000 in addition to the £170 million transfer fee.

Thomas Tuchel has informed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and club director Marina Granovskaia that signing a world-class striker should be the club's top priority this summer.

This summer, Chelsea has been linked with several strikers, including Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, and Romelu Lukaku.

It would have been tough to sign Harry Kane from their rivals Tottenham Hotspur among the three-man shortlist. Meanwhile, Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has stated that he intends to stay at the San Siro next season. Chelsea now has only Erling Haaland to contend with.

Barcelona and Manchester United are among the clubs showing interest in Haaland. Signing for the European champions, on the other hand, is an appealing proposition for the Norwegian international.
