Former Chelsea Man Pat Nevin Thinks It May Take £160 Million For Dortmund to Sell Haaland
It has been one of the most eventful summers in history when it comes to player transfers. Lionel Messi signing for PSG and Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United have obviously been the stand-out deals, but Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland have all been linked with a move away from their clubs.
Haaland is one of the brightest players in European football. His record for Dortmund over the last two years speaks for itself. He was also the top goalscorer in the Champions League last season, so he has proved himself at the highest level.
Former Chelsea and Everton winger Pat Nevin believes if an English club were able to sign the Norway striker, they would be in the driving seat for the Premier League title. His former club in West London was heavily linked with the Norwegian before eventually purchasing Romelu Lukaku.
Nevin also thinks it could take as much as £160 million for Dortmund to let go of their prized asset, but ultimately it will be the player who decides his future.
He told fcbusiness.co.uk, on behalf of British Gambler: “The Haaland situation is simple, any team in the world would take him. Full stop. That’s it.
“The way his career has been managed has been stunning, so Chelsea could pay the £160 million or whatever it is, but in his mind, he might be thinking ‘I’m going to play for someone else’.”
“I suspect if Haaland came to Chelsea, they would win the league, the same can be said if he went to City or Liverpool.”
Nevin suggests Haaland is likely to be at the top of every big club’s list when it comes to recruiting a striker. The Dortmund man is just 21 years old so his best years are likely to still be ahead of him.”
He said: “When you’re heading for the top in terms of strikers, then it is Haaland, that’s the player you want.”
“I’m not saying he’s better than Kane or Lukaku, but he’s younger so he would be the one to bring in.”
Haaland has got off to a fast start for Dortmund this season with five goals coming from his opening four games.
