Erling Haaland has been linked with a move to another Premier League club and Chelsea are falling out of favour for the Norweigan forward.
Erling Haaland could well be making his way to England next season. It’s all exciting news until you realise that he might not end up in London.
The Norweigan star boy had been linked with a move to Liverpool and Chelsea fans are outraged. Whilst Antonio Rudiger may well join another premier league team, our former summer transfer target may join our fiercest title rivals too.
Despite acquiring Romelu Lukaku for £97 million in the summer, it’ll be a big hit having Haaland join Liverpool, potentially to strengthen their already strong attack.
In the words of Spider man’s nemesis, May God help us all.
It’s no secret that Erling Haaland is a human goal-scoring machine. He has scored a whopping 76 goals in 79 matches for Borussia Dortmund and he is only 21. Just let that sink in. His ability cooped with Mo Salah’s killer instinct in front of goal would make a partnership that would rule the English league for years to come.
Nobody wants that.
Haaland’s release clause can be activated next summer at just £63 million. Other clubs interested include Manchester City, Man United, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and surprisingly, Chelsea.
Could a partnership between Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland work? Anything is possible. Who would say no to two world-class goal scorers at the hem of Chelsea’s attack? There are other priorities to focus on within the team, however, snatching a gold mine from our rivals may be the best piece of business that Marina Granovskaia and the Chelsea board can do.
Chelsea had spent the majority of the summer trying to secure Haaland before reaching out to Lukaku. The star boy was close to signing for the Blues, but somewhere along the line with agent fees and increases in demands, Roman Abramovich backed out of the race. Knowing that his release clause could be triggered in the following summer, I would say that this was a good decision.
All decisions made come with consequences. Chelsea may have to face the fact that Liverpool could be ahead of them in the race to sign the forward, considering that they already have Lukaku in their books. Despite the steal of a release clause, the wage demands may make it nearly impossible for the Blues to sign him.
I am sure Manchester City fans probably feel the same way knowing that Liverpool could potentially sign a striker – something that Pep Guardiola has refused to play with for the last two seasons.
As Chelsea’s forwards continue to struggle in front of the goal, maybe adding another one to the mix isn’t the smartest idea. However, I would not be against signing him so that we can stop Liverpool from strengthening their squad at our deficit.
