Chelsea Coach Thomas Tuchel Confirms Interest in Erling Haaland

We talked about Erling Haaland a couple of times, including during the transfer window. But then it seemed absolutely unrealistic and not at all feasible,” the Chelsea boss told SportBild .

“We talk about him regularly, of course, because he’s a fantastic player and clearly the defining figure at Dortmund, who is a big rival for us in the Champions League.”

Asked if he can see Haaland moving to Stamford Bridge next summer despite Lukaku’s presence, he added: “You mean two at the top [with] Lukaku and Haaland? We can talk about it!

“I don’t think we’ve been really serious about it yet, but let’s see what will happen in the next few weeks.”
