Chelsea are among the clubs keen to secure the signature of Borrusia Dortmund star Erling Haaland’s signature at the end of the campaign. However, Chelsea have been warned that the signing of the Norwegian could be a “disaster.” by the former Chelsea icon Frank Lebouef.
It is believed that Dortmund are reluctant to sell their pricy asset to Chelsea, bearing in mind that the current Blues manager left the German side on bad terms. Tuchel who won German Cup at Dortmund is often remembered for the bust-ups he had during his reign at the club.
The former Chelsea player Lebouef – who played for Chelsea between 1996 and 2001 – is concerned that Haaland’s arrival could have a negative impact on the Chelsea dressing room.
Lebouef told Sky Sports: “Haaland is a beast.
“Of course it would be a plus for Chelsea. But now you have to think financially and economically, and you also have to also think and make sure your dressing room is going to be following the coach.
“If you put Haaland (in the team) you lose [Olivier] Giroud.
“But you might lose [Kai] Havertz, you might lose [Timo] Werner as well. What about [Christian] Pulisic? Where are you going to play [Hakim] Ziyech?
“That is an equation that you have to make sure is going to work and that the results are going to be good for the club.
“You can add talents, that is not a problem. But you have to make sure the chemistry works.
“Otherwise it is going to be a disaster. Having only talent doesn’t make sure you are going to win something.”
Despite a lot of speculations surrounding the Norwegian exit, he recently said he has three years remaining in his contract with Dortmund and he is not worried about any potential exit.
