In his latest interview, Dortmund striker Erling Haaland talks about his potential move to Chelsea and his agent involvement in the deal,disclosing he is yet to hear anything substantial about any bid.
Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has quashed rumours linking him with a 175 million euro move to Chelsea this summer by confirming he hasn’t spoken to his agent Mino Raiola in a month.
The Blues are desperate to add a prolific goalscorer to a team that already won the Champions League last season, but are set to be disappointed in their pursuit of the Norwegian forward.
“Before yesterday I hadn’t spoken to my agent in a month, so you tell me, there you have the answer,” Haaland explained in a press conference.
“I hope they are just rumours, as 175 million euros would be a lot of money for one person.
“I have three years left on my contract; I’m enjoying my time here.”
Dortmund are not keen on selling Haaland this summer and have set a prohibitive price of 175 million euros on his head, although rumours of a big-money bid from Chelsea had created this latest stir.
If Haaland remains in Germany, his buyout clause will be 75 million euros in the summer of 2022, which will spark a bidding war between Chelsea, Manchester United and both Barcelona and Real Madrid.
