The Norwegian striker is the man the Blues have identified to resolve their desire for a new star man up front. Timo Werner signed for £ 45million last summer but has struggled to convince. Tammy Abraham, meanwhile, has fallen out of favor under new boss Thomas Tuchel and has Arsenal’s interest.
Haaland will cost over £ 100million if he moves to clubs this summer, given he was only 21.
Previous reports have claimed that Abramovich released £ 150million to fund Chelsea move. Indeed, he felt that Dortmund would not be able to refuse this amount, as much as they would like.
According to the last of Football initiate, however, the Russian owner of the Blues has changed his mind.
He is only willing to submit a maximum bid of £ 130million and is preparing to send such an offer.
Chelsea reportedly sent the offer as a direct cash offer, despite rumors of a players-plus-money deal.
Abraham and Werner have both had links with a transfer to the Bundesliga club. However, Abramovich spoke out against such a decision.
Haaland’s signing for £ 130million would represent a record British transfer. However, there are new rumors that Manchester City could pay even more for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
Haaland has previously insisted he could disappoint his transfer contenders by staying at Dortmund.
Last weekend he reiterated this point, describing his enthusiasm for the 2021/22 campaign under new director Marco Rose.

“I talked to him a bit and I know him from before because I had him for six months in Salzburg,” the forward said of his new boss.
“He’s a nice guy and I can’t wait to work with him.
“I’ve heard that the training sessions are tough here so it’s just like in Salzburg. Intensive training and a lot of running.
“That’s what I expect the tactics to be, pressing a lot, running a lot and attacking a lot. “
Haaland has scored 40 goals in 43 Bundesliga games since leaving RB Salzburg in January 2020.
