Reports: Chelsea Set to Sign Erling Haaland As They Submit Player Plus Cash Bid To Dortmund

It has been reported by Sports Journalist Ekrem Konur, that Chelsea has reportedly made a move in signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, it is said that the blues submitted a bid to Dortmund of £70m with Tammy Abraham for the services of Erling Haaland. This offer may seem insulting to Dortmund who evaluate their most priced asset at over £150m.

It was earlier reported that Chelsea may want to use Abraham as a bargaining chip to beat down the record fee wanted for Haaland by Dortmund, but Dortmund may not be willing to let go of Erling Haaland so easily, most especially after the player has proven his value to world football and has shown that he is of great class and quality, he is also very young with many more years greatness ahead of him, while Abraham seems to be excess baggage to Chelsea and can not be qualified to what Haaland has to offer.

Though Chelsea's latest bid seems unworthy of the players quality, other clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester United, and City are also in the race for the signature of the player, but City seems to be most favored to secure the signing of the player with the departure of Sergio Aguero, Chelsea's latest poor bid may have been caused by panic as a result of the players latest move to party with City player Riyad Mahrez who is currently on holidays, Mahrez's latest post on social media was suggestive that he was trying to convince the player to join Manchester City.

Though Dortmund has not released any official statement regarding Chelsea's latest bid, we wait to see if Dortmund will accept the deal being offered.
