Thomas Tuchel is set to move for a new center-forward as Chelsea has made Erling Haaland their top transfer target ahead of the summer.
According to reports on the Daily Express website, the 20-year-old Norwegian striker is looking to secure a five-year package worth £78 million, if he comes to England.
That works out at least £300,000-a-week, a similar sort of deal to what Raheem Sterling currently earns, but less than City teammate, Kevin De Bruyne and Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Haaland has always been quiet about his future but gave a brief hint over his plans.
When asked about the number of teams interested in his services, Haaland replied: “It’s always nice when people want you.”
Look, that is a lot of money to spend on the player, but at the end of the day, he is certainly a player that would be a great investment for the club.
Tuchel was brought to the club too late in the January transfer window to sign players and put his own stamp on the side, which means that he will have to wait until the end of the season to get the players that he needs.
According to the Sunday World, Granovskaia is willing to shell out £172 million for the Borussia Dortmund duo of Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.
Haaland and Sancho are regarded as two of the most exciting players in world football, and they are heavily tipped to pack their bags and leave the German outfit during the summer transfer window.
Chelsea has been linked with both players for some time now but has not been able to get deals done, as Dortmund has no desire to let the players leave, but that could change in the summer.
It is claimed that both players are ready to leave Dortmund in the transfer window and will cash in on their star duo, for the right amount of money.
Former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel arrived far too late in the January window to be able to splash a bit of cash to try and add to a squad that is firmly regarded as one of the finest in the Premier League.
However, the summer window could be a very different story, as he will know that he will need to add a couple of players to the squad that will help his side reach that next level, with Bayern star, Sule on the shopping list.
Local media reports in Germany have it that the 25-year-old has been added to the transfer wishlist along with fellow Bundesliga defenders, David Alaba and Dayot Upamecano.
Sule, who is under contract at the Allianz Arena until 2022, has made 20 appearances in all competitions for Bayern this season but has only started two of the club’s last six Bundesliga fixtures, and he is reportedly not happy with his current situation at the club
But Rummenigge is still hopeful that he will extend his stay with the German champions: “We want the good German national team players at FC Bayern. Niklas still has one year of the contract,” the Bayern chief told ZDF.
“We will hold talks and see where they’ll lead. We will look at the whole thing seriously and calmly by the summer.
“Corona (Covid-19 pandemic) has also caused financial damage to FC Bayern.
“If we find a solution, we are happy to extend the contract, but that will only be possible under certain conditions.”
