After Chelsea’s proposal was rejected, Erling Haaland held talks with Borussia Dortmund.
As rumors about Erling Haaland’s future spread, he appears to be optimistic about the future.
Erling Haaland has already spoken with Marco Rose, the new manager of Borussia Dortmund, and he is excited about the next season. This will be bad news for clubs like Chelsea, who appear to be the only ones willing to pay top dollar to lure him away from the Bundesliga this summer.
The Blues’ first offer, a player-plus-cash trade including Tammy Abraham, was previously turned down.
Abraham was extensively linked to the Stamford Bridge exit door and fit the Dortmund profile of a young, talented player with development and resale potential in many aspects, so the proposition made sense in many ways.
He’s also tall and a great finisher, like Haaland, but it wasn’t enough to entice the Bundesliga side to do business with him.
Chelsea may always counter with a higher monetary offer, but Haaland’s recent words suggest that the relationship between him and the German club is still positive.
Man United are in talks with a second Real Madrid player following the sale of Raphael Varane.
“I’ve talked with him a little bit,” he remarked (Rose). I already knew him from our six-month agreement when he was in Salzburg.
“He’s a fantastic man, and I’m excited to work with him.”
Rose is a well-liked and recognized figure in German football, thanks to his recent tenure as coach of Borussia Monchengladbach.
He also has personal experience with Haaland, having managed RB Salzburg when he was a rampaging, goal-hungry teenager.

If the Norwegian has a secret wish to leave BVB this summer, he is doing them a favor by driving a hard bargain and not voicing his intention.
If the transfer situation drags on until 2022, as seems increasingly likely with each failed Chelsea maneuver, it will become a massive undertaking.
Juventus are the latest to join the party, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract set to expire and Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid all said to be interested. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
