Roman Abramovich 'to Hand Chelsea £260m Warchest' To Sign Haaland And Others by obembet(f): 2:09pm On Feb 23
It seems Roman Abramovich is not ready to rest on his laurels as he prepares to splash more cash this summer to get Chelsea back competing at the top of the table.

The Blues' owner sanctioned over £200million worth of transfers in the off-season in a bid to close the gap on their rivals.

But after sacking Frank Lampard and instilling Thomas Tuchel as his replacement, Abramovich now sees the need to further invest in the playing squad.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb , he is now set to plunge another £260million into the club, with Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland top of his wishlist.

Haaland has no shortage of potential suitors lining up for his signature, but with finances still tight for many clubs, Chelsea could steal a march in the race for the 20-year-old.

The striker is expected to leave Dortmund next year when the £65m release clause in his contract becomes active - with Man Utd, Juventus and Real Madrid all set for a place at the auction.

But Abramovich wants Chelsea to land Haaland 'at all costs', which could see them splurge the bulk of their transfer kitty on him this summer, rather than join a bidding war in 2022.

Dortmund are open to selling off their most-prized assets amid their current financial concerns, and could welcome collecting a higher fee for Haaland a year earlier than originally planned.

Haaland's notorious agent Mino Raiola has already outlined his client's demands: a five-year deal totalling £78m in wages - the equivalent of £300,000 per week.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke stated last month that he believed Haaland would remain at the club for at least another season.

He told Kicker : "Haaland gave himself the time to mature into an absolute world-class player in Dortmund. You won't be able to do that in a year."

"Because it is clear that if Erling should leave us at some point, then he will only go to an even bigger club, and so many are not considered.

"If you join a club like - just for an example - Real Madrid, you have to be world-class."

But following Haaland's latest two-goal display against Sevilla in the Champions League, taking his season tally to 27 already, he looks to have pushed closer to that status quicker than many expected, with Chelsea poised to pounce.

Chelsea are also in need of a new central defender, with Bayern Munich's Niklas Sule emerging as a possible target, while RB Leipzig's Ibrahima Konate continues to be linked.

Lampard was a total failure in the transfer market. From the waste called Kai Harvetz to the defensive striker called Timo Werner.

That's why I really respect Arsene Wenger, who gets a relatively unknown player for a cheap fee, groom the player into a world class material.

Same thing Jurgen Klopp is doing at Liverpool.

If Chelsea could get this boy and a reliable creative midfielder like James Madison, then Manchester City will have to handover the crown to the Blues.

haaland pls no matter the amount, no pick this call abeg...chelsea isnt d club for u, instead stay in Dortmund n play for free bcox moving to chelsea would spell doom for ur sweet n hot career..
no join the likes of torres, shevchenko, pizzaro, anelka, di Santo, sturidge, lukaku, bamford, demba ba, mutu, kezman etc that made such mistake...
if u must move, pls choose a better and fluent attacking team like Bayern, city or even PSG...

Timo Werner has contributed more to Chelsea this season than any other player

remember attackers are good when there are sharp box to box midfielders This is the advantage that both Bayern and Dortmund have. Whether they concede goals isn't their concern. Their concern is how many goals are we scoring in this match

That's your opinion bro but for me it is wrong, true, Lampard failed in grooming Werner and Kai but both have been always good until Chelsea. It may or may not have been Lampard's fault. Even some of the best players had their down times, this shit happens and it can be attributed to so many things not just the coach. You can't say that Wenger always groom youngies to world class, he had a truck load of failures in his latter years. Even Klopp is suffering the same fate right now. There is always a down time. Not all players can be as lucky or good as Ronaldo and Messi just to name the best.

Chelsea has a very poor history with strikers like one of the comments above already said.. I'd rather he goes to la liga, its relatively easier to score goals there...

Read properly before commenting. Over 200 million for the transfer window and not for Haaland alone.
