Thanks to Roman Abramovich, Chelsea are expected to execute a “mind-boggling” transfer.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been tipped to make a major signing for Thomas Tuchel.
According to former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino, Chelsea will surely make a “mind-boggling” purchase before the end of the summer transfer window. Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund has been widely connected with Chelsea. Cascarino believes that Haaland could be the next big thing for Roman Abramovich.
Despite a relatively low release clause coming into effect in the summer of 2022, Dortmund is desperate to keep Haaland for another season.
In current transfer window, the Bundesliga club is looking for roughly £150 million for the Norwegian.
Chelsea are the frontrunners to buy Dortmund’s 20-year-old, with Real Madrid and Barcelona unable to meet Dortmund’s current asking price.
Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea spent over £200 million on new acquisitions last summer and won the Champions League the following season.
Cascarino believes Abramovich will want to sign a headline deal during this window.
With Olivier Giroud out and Tammy Abraham on the verge of leaving, the commentator believes Haaland is the most probable candidate to step in.
“Chelsea have made a lot of money in the previous year or so, with the Champions League and selling Eden Hazard,” Cascarino told talkSPORT. They’ve amassed a big fortune.
“I can’t believe they aren’t willing to spend big money on someone like Haaland.

“They’re going to make a major move, in my opinion.
“The storm is coming – because Roman [Abramovich] has always done it, he has always backed the club.
“I’d be shocked if they went in with the roster they have today, despite the fact that they are European champions.
“Expect Chelsea to make a major splash. I don’t see why they wouldn’t do it.
“[Giroud] has left, and Tammy is rumored to be departing as well; they’re clearing out the place. Clubs are now required to do so. Clubs are attempting to follow the guidelines. People must be relocated.
“To do so, they’re planning a mind-boggling move, which I believe will be to Haaland.
“Chelsea will make a large offer.” Brinkwire Summary News
