Chelsea and Erling Haaland Saga Still On

Updated: Jan 25

After missing out on the Erling Haaland deal, Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku in the summer. However, the club's pursuit of Haaland continues. 

Last night, Chelsea won their Champions League group stage match against Malmo FF 4-0. But the victory was marred by injuries to Lukaku and Timo Werner. In the 23rd minute of the game, Lukaku got injured and had to be substituted with Kai Havertz. Then, in the 44th minute, Werner also had to be substituted with Callum Hudson-Odoi.

After the match, in the press conference, the question about Erling Haaland was raised by Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel after both strikers' injuries. In reply to that question, Thomas Tuchel said, " Of course we talk about him... But let us see what will happen in the next weeks."[Haaland playing with Lukaku], I have no problem talking about that..."

It can be inferred from this statement that if Lukaku fails to perform well and score goals soon for Chelsea, as he has not scored in the last eight games, then Chelsea might pursue Haaland in the upcoming winter transfer window.
