NEWS] Chelsea to sell this 12 players to fund Erling Haaland bid

According to transfer news from Eurosport , Chelsea are willing to
sell up to 12 players to fund a move for Erling Haaland. The Blues
want to raise £200million in a bid to land the Borussia Dortmund

The Norwegian is arguably the hottest prospect in the world right
now and has impressed heavily at Borussia Dortmund. Europe’s
biggest clubs are now circling around him over a summer deal. He
does have a modest release clause that gets activated in the
summer of 2022, but a host of clubs want a deal this year itself.

Chelsea embarked on a huge spending spree this season and with
the pandemic still going on, finances could be hit hard in the
coming season. Nonetheless, Chelsea’s keen interest in the
forward means that they are ready to sell first-team players as well
as the ones on loan.

Among those on loan, the likes of Danny Drinkwater , Tiemoue
Bakayoko, Davide Zappacosta , Kennedy, Michy Batshuayi, Victor
Moses , Ruben Loftus-Cheek , Ike Ugbo , Baba Rahman and Ross
Barkley could be allowed to leave on a permanent basis. There is
also Fikayo Tomori , who has impressed at Milan and is
almost sure of being signed.

Two first – team players could also be moved on to fetch those
extra funds. Tammy Abraham and Kurt Zouma have been deemed
surplus to requirements and are set to be sold . All those sales
should get Chelsea around £200million, which should be more
than enough to tempt Dortmund into selling.

This is by no means an easy deal , with Haaland being the most in-
demand player in Europe currently.

However, irrespective of his
arrival, Chelsea could really do with some player sales given how
bloated the squad is. In turn, that would help us balance the books
and fund new arrivals.
