Erling Haaland announced he hopes that a possible transfer to Chelsea Football Club for €175 million is just rumors. As revealed by him, he considers it a lot of money for just one player.

Erling Haaland signed with Borussia Dortmund in 2020, scoring a total of 40 goals and contributing with 11 assists in just 43 games.

The 21-year old had a rise ever since joining Salzburg in 2019, which eventually drew major teams like Dortmund. Despite not winning many trophies, Haaland's numbers speak for themselves, especially in the Champions League.

Haaland's Champions League numbers already are phenomenal, for example, when compared to other legends. Haaland scored 20 goals in just 16 games with a ratio of 1,25. While players like Gonzalo Higuain (24 goals in 83 games), Luís Figo (24 goals in 103 games), Antoine Griezmann (25 goals in 70 games), Luis Suárez (26 goals in 66 games), Mário Jardel (25 goals in 46 games), and many others don't come close to his ratio, needing more games to reach the 20-goal mark.

Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, is considered one of the most successful agents worldwide, representing the best players. Such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Matthijs De Ligt, and Marco Verratti.

Raiola has had a busy summer, as he dealt with multiple talks, consequently taking care of Donnarumma's transfer to Paris Saint Germain.

Raiola's dealing with a possible transfer that would send Paul Pogba from Manchester United to Paris Saint Germain as of late.

Moving Haaland to Chelsea would be the most expensive deal Raiola ever brokered if the rumored €175 million are the fee Chelsea needs to pay. The upcoming days will tell if Chelsea advances with such a transfer fee and rumors become true.
