Chelsea have Halaand as their main transfer target to reinforce their attacking options, and it looks like the striker would look fondly at a move to London.
In this sense, the Norwegian has reportedly communicated to the Blues that, if they don’t manage to sign him this summer, he is willing to wait for them until next year.
Although team such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona looked to have the advantage in the battle to secure the services of Erling Haaland, the truth is that Chelsea have burst onto the scene to take control of the bidding for the player.
Against the exorbitant asking price set by Borussia Dortmund, the side from London look to be the only ones prepared to give it everything to secure the signing of the Norwegian. This is an affection that the player himself seems to share, as he would look very fondly at continuing his career with the current European champions.
In fact, as ‘The Telegraph’ reports, the Dortmund striker has allegedly communicated to Chelsea his desire to play at Stamford Bridge, and that he would be willing to wait for the Blues until next year’s summer transfer market in 2022.
These are words that will allow Roman Abramovich to go into the deal for the Norwegian with a certain element of calm, who will only be allowed to leave this summer for an eye-watering 200 million euros, more or less.
It looks like Chelsea are ready to go all in for the striker this summer, but knowing that Haaland would wait a year for the club could be prove to be crucial in negotiations to try and lower the demands set by Borussia Dortmund.
