Haaland drops transfer hint, Lewandowski message sent, Ronaldo message sent and Pulisic to stay in Chelsea latest…
Chelsea target Erling Haaland has hinted he could remain at Borussia Dortmund beyond the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old has become one of the most sought-after players in Europe after scoring 37 goals in 38 total appearances this season.
His performances for Dortmund has led to alot of rumours that Thomas Tuchel has made him the number one transfer target for the club in the summer, as he seeks to add a 30-goal forward to his attack.
Haaland’s side are currently in fourth place in the Bundesliga, holding on to the final Champions League spot by just one point over Eintracht Frankfurt with two games left. And to a blow to all the chasing clubs, he has hinted that he could stay at the club, should they get back into that Champions League spot.
“I always want to play at the highest level. The Champions League is particularly important to me,” the Norway star BILD
Though his star forward has been consistently linked with a move away, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke added that he isn’t expecting a summer move for Haaland.
“I have the clear expectation that Erling Haaland will still play for us next year,” Watzke said.
Haaland is a man that will be on all the clubs shopping lists in the transfer window and it would be a massive surprise to still see him at Dortmund at the start of next season.
He has a very big decision to make in the transfer window, and needs to make the right choice, as the next move could make or break him.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has moved quickly to rubbish any suggestion that Chelsea target Robert Lewandowski will leave the club at the end of the season.
Lewandowski is on the brink of breaking more records this season, as he closes in on 40 Bundesliga goals in 2020-21, but there has been alot of rumours that he could actually leave the club at the end of the season.
However, despite all that speculation, Bayern have no need to consider offloading Lewandowski as the talismanic presence is tied to a contract through to 2023, and Rummenigge says there is no chance of him leaving the Allianz Arena any time soon.
“Sure he stays. Who sells a player that scores 60 goals a year?” Rummenigge, chairman of the executive board at Bayern, told Sport1.
Look, He is showing no sign of slowing down, having hit another 46 goals across all competitions this season, and has spoken of a desire to play on for at least another five years. So the rumours that he could leave have been a shock to see in the media.
He is one of the very best strikers in the game, and Bayern would be silly to let him leave the club. So unless something sensational happens in the summer, we will not be seeing Lewandowski arrive at the club.
The club do need to add a striker like Lewandowski to the squad in the transfer window and we all have our favourites, but it will be interesting to see just who the cub manage to sign in the transfer window
Christian Vieri has warned Juventus that “Cristiano Ronaldo will leave and many others will follow him”, which will alert the likes of Chelsea.
The domestic crown has been snatched away by Inter, another early Champions League exit has been suffered and there is now plenty of speculation to suggest that key men – such as five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo – could soon head for the exits in search of a fresh challenge.
Now, amid all the speculation, Vieri believes defeat against Inter this weekend will end top-four ambitions and spark a mass exodus, The former Bianconeri striker told Bobo TV: “For me, Inter will win in Turin and Juventus won’t play in the Champions League next season.
“Without Champions League football, Ronaldo will leave and many others will follow him, Juventus will face a severe financial crisis.
“It will be a dramatic failure and many players will leave.”
Ronaldo has faced much criticism about not helping Juventus win that title and Champions League crown this year, but they simply do not have the good players to help the great achieve his goals.
Any number of teams around the world would be happy to buy into Ronaldo’s ability and profile as he approaches the final 12 months of his current contract, and we are one of those clubs.
They club have wanted to sign Ronaldo for many seasons now and as they seek to add a world class striker to the attack to compliment that quality in youth they have, he could be a very good option to sign.
Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has dismissed rumours he could quit Stamford Bridge this summer.
Regarded as one of the most exciting young players in world football, Pulisic has been plagued by injuries since his move from the Bundesliga just a few seasons ago, and he has struggled to make a real impact on this side.
And because of that, The United States international has found himself in and out of the side under Thomas Tuchel and admitted to being “very frustrated” in being left out of big games in recent weeks, which has led to speculation that he could leave the club at the end of the season.
However, Pulisic says he isn’t going anywhere and is “up for the challenge” of proving himself in west London, When asked whether he saw his long-term future at the Bridge, Pulisic told ESPN: “Yeah, I’m obviously happy here. It has been an incredible two years.
“People have always doubted and said: ‘Oh, he’s not playing, does he want to go here, does he want to go there?’ I’m always up for a challenge, I love competing, I love the position I’m in and I’m enjoying my time here.”
Pulisic has started just 11 of 26 games in all competitions since the German’s arrival at the end of January and it is very easy to see just why he has been linked with a move away from the club.
But at the end of the day, the winger is a very good talent that will come good, eventually. SO if we have the patience to see him reach his best, they will be rewarded as the young man is a very special player.
