Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has agreed to fund the Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland transfer so as to boost Thomas Tuchel’s performance

Tuchel is preparing to face Burnley away from home in the Premier League as his second game under Chelsea on weekend

Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol has claimed that Chelsea will make Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland their main target to replace Olivier Giroud.

“We know how good he has been since he moved there and he has a release clause of 75 million euros, but that release clause is in the summer of 2022,” he said.

“Because of the pandemic, most clubs will not have money to spend in the summer, but of course we saw last summer that as far as Chelsea are concerned, they view that as an opportunity.

“Roman Abramovich is one of the richest men in the world, so Chelsea have the money to do the deal in the summer if they can convince Dortmund to sell and convince Haaland to come to Stamford Bridge.”
