Chelsea ‘preparing big offer’ to tempt Borussia Dortmund to sell Erling Haaland

Chelsea ‘preparing big offer’ to tempt Borussia Dortmund to sell Erling Haaland

Dortmund intent on keeping Haaland

Borussia Dortmund are known to be a club that will sell a player for the right price as has been demonstrated with the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Christian Pulisic to name but a few.

Since 2016 they have made over £550 million in player sales. Whilst they remain competitive in regards to qualifying for the Champions League and reaching the knockout stages of the competition most years, they do sacrifice a sustained title challenge.

This often leaves Bayern Munich as outright favourites every season and with the rise of RB Leipzig, Dortmund now look to be even further down the pecking order.

Therefore, with the case of Erling Haaland, it is unsurprising that the club want to keep hold of him.

The Norwegian striker has been a phenomenon since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020. Seen as the world’s number one striker of the future, Dortmund will do well to avoid him being added to their long list of exports.

Club executive Michael Zorc has stood firm on his word so far that they intend to keep him.

“We are still planning with him. He will play for us next season,” Zorc said.

Chelsea preparing ‘big’ Haaland offer

Despite Dortmund’s intent to keep Haaland, it has not stopped interest growing from other clubs.

A release clause will activate next summer which could see BVB lose him for less than €100 million. A fee that would surely be exceeded if his true value in the market was paid.

Therefore, some clubs are looking to tempt Dortmund to sell earlier this summer by offering a significant amount before the clause activates.

Chelsea are credited with preparing a ‘big offer’ for the player according to Jan Aage Fjortoft.

“I understand Chelsea are preparing a “BIG offer” to check out and challenge Dortmund’s “he will stay here next season”. The understanding is that Dortmund won’t say no to 175 million euro,” he said.

This would see Timo Werner’s position as starting striker threatened and the German could be permanently positioned in a wider role to accommodate Haaland.

The investment needed to get Haaland suggests the club are willing to do all they can to get him and he will have an assured spot as the main striker.
