Erling Haaland ends any speculation he’s leaving Dortmund for Chelsea
All summer, Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has been heavily linked to Chelsea. After all, they’re not hurting for money following their Champions League triumph. While the speculations continue, the player himself has made it pretty clear he doesn’t plan on leaving Germany.
When speaking to reporters at Dortmund’s summer training camp, Haaland had this to say about the Blues rumors, via Goal’s Chris Burton:
“Before yesterday I hadn’t spoken with my agent for a month. So there you have the answer.
“I hope it’s only rumours because it’s a lot of money for a player.”
175 million euros? Yeah, that’s a lot of money. You’d think Dortmund would be keen on cashing in on Erling Haaland, but then again, they just lost Jadon Sancho as well to Manchester United.
Haaland’s agent is Mino Raiola, who is one of the best around. But, the Norwegian’s current deal has another three years remaining, which makes it unlikely he jets for the Premier League this summer.
Erling Haaland has emerged as arguably the most clinical striker on the planet across the last two seasons. Since making the switch from RB Salzburg to Dortmund, the youngster has bagged 57 goals in 59 appearances.
Chelsea is going to do everything imaginable to try and lure Haaland away from Signal Iduna Park, but considering he barely speaks to his agent, it’s just rumors at this point. He’s solely focused on competing for BVB.
