Chelsea planning ambitious Erling Haaland move

Chelsea to swoop for Erling Haaland?

Chelsea are planning an ambitious move to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer.

The Blues recently won the Champions League for the second time in their history, beating Manchester City in the final.

Ahead of next season, they are expected to go on a spending spree, and most of the funds could be spent on an elite striker.

A move for Romelu Lukaku seems unlikely with the Belgian confirming that he will remain with Inter Milan next season.

According to ex-Norwegian striker Jan Aage Fjortoft, the Blues are lining up a big-money move for Dortmund star Haaland.

The 20-year-old is seen as the 'missing piece' for the club's title challenge, and they are ready to break the bank for him.

However, the major stumbling block remains the salary package. The marksman could demand around £400,000-a-week.

There have been automatic pay hikes after the European success, and the wage bill remains a concern for the Blues.

The west London giants may need to offload multiple unwanted players before making their approach for Haaland

Haaland had an exceptional 2020/21 campaign for Dortmund, registering a stunning 41 goals and 12 assists from 41 appearances.
