Chelsea billionaire owner ‘releases funds for Chelsea to land £150m Erling Haaland ‘
Roman Abramovich has handed Chelsea the funds to go and get Borussia Dortmund star striker Erling Haaland this summer for £150million, according to reports.
The 20-year-old striker is expected to be chased by several of Europe’s elite this summer, with Sportsmail revealing in March that the Blues are one of three European sides interested in the forward along with Manchester City and Real Madrid.
Haaland, who scored 41 goals in 41 matches last season for the German side, would follow England international Jadon Sancho out of the Dortmund exit door should he move on this summer, with the winger set to join Manchester United for £73million.
And according to BILD, Abramovich has released the money for Chelsea to sign Haaland this summer but will need to offload some attacking stars in order to get the deal over the line.
The report claims attacking trio Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Hakim Ziyech are just some of the players that face the chop at Stamford Bridge should the west Londoners steal a march in the race for Haaland.
