Football.london’s Chelsea writer, Sam Inkersole, can’t see Borussia Dortmund letting Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho leave in the same transfer window.
Sancho completed his move to Manchester United last week and there has been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of striker Erling Haaland, with football.london reporting that the 21-year-old is Chelsea’s prime target this summer.
Haaland scored 41 goals in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund last season, so it’s easy to see why there is plenty of interest in his signature this summer, but Inkersole can’t see the Bundesliga outfit letting both prized assets leave in the same transfer window.
“I’m still struggling to get my head around the fact that they could sell Jadon Sancho and Haaland in the same window, I just can’t see it happening,” Inkersole told Football FanCast.
Jadon Sancho’s transfer fee was believed to be £73m and Haaland will be available for around £70m next summer, according to Sky Sports, due to a clause in his contract.
Chelsea haven’t spent any money yet in this transfer window but have made their first summer signing, as goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli joined the Blues from Fulham on a free transfer.
