Chelsea to use powerhouse in bid to wrap up £300 million packaged deal
It has been claimed that Chelsea will look to use Romelu Lukaku as a makeweight in their bid to sign Erling Haaland in the summer window
The Belgian returned to Stamford Bridge for a club-record fee in the summer transfer window in the hope he could fire Thomas Tuchel’s side to the Premier League title.
It was believed that he was now ready to lead that attack after establishing himself as one of the most deadly strikers in world football over at Italian giants Inter Milan
But those plans have not worked out as hoped, with Lukaku scoring just nine goals since he arrived at the club, and the powerhouse has once again fuelled talk of a potential exit by posting a cryptic message on his Snapchat account.
“If you have to force it then it probably doesn’t fit,” he wrote on a plain black background on Friday afternoon.
Now, IcChelseanews has learned that the club are willing to offer Romelu Lukaku to Borussia Dortmund, plus cash, in a bid to sign hot-shot Haaland.
Haaland is one of the most dangerous players in world football already and is attracting real interest in his services, especially as the big clubs will be able to sign him up for just £64 million in the summer
Borussia Dortmund are searching for a replacement for the Norwegian, and In an attempt to convince Dortmund to sell Erling Haaland to them, Chelsea could offer Lukaku in exchange for the 21-year-old.
Haaland reportedly wants £500,000-a-week wages, a massive signing on bonus and promises of Champions League football every season. Chelsea can give him all of that.
If the reports are true and we are looking to offload Lukaku, then Haaland is the man that they need to sign up, he really is a brilliant forward and ready for the Premier League
