Journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea may be able to sign Erling Haaland for just €75 million in 2022
He has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United, but it seems that we are ready to flex their financial power at the end of the season and make a move for the striker.
Lampard spent over £230million bolstering his squad during this summer’s transfer window, as He poached Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen and Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.
But it has been claimed that Lampard sees Haaland as the final piece of the puzzle for the club and is preparing to make a move at the end of the season, but they will now have a massive battle on their hands.
Romano has claimed that Dortmund do not want to sell their key man in 2021 and will fight to keep the striker, but he has told the club that Haaland has a release clause in his contract that they may be able to activate in the summer of 2022
He Tweeted: “Erling Haaland release clause will be valid by June *2022* for €75m, Borussia Dortmund board are in love with Haaland and hope to keep him also on next summer – for sure, they have no intention of selling Erling for €75m on 2021… 🇳🇴 #Haaland”
If Romano is right and we can seal a deal for Haaland for an absolute bargain, then weshould definitely make a transfer move as the forward has the ability to go on and become one of the very best strikers in world football.
The attack is already world class, but there is some doubt about the long-term futures of Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud, who are not happy keeping the bench warm.
