Chelsea transfer news live as deal completed and Erling Haaland latest update
Welcome to Chelsea247.com that brings you latest Chelsea news and transfer updates live, sit back and read the latest updates from our beloved team.
Firstly, Chelsea latest Deal completed!
MK Dons have signed 21-year-old striker Charlie Brown on a permanent deal, ending his four-and-a-half-year star with Chelsea.
Chelsea signed Brown from Ispwich Town in 2016. He excelled in the youth ranks, scoring 53 goals in 108 appearances. He was also named the UEFA Youth League top goalscorer during the 2018/19 season when he scored 12 goals in nine games.
“I’m over the moon to be here,” Brown told mkdons.com. “This is an opportunity I’ve been waiting for and I can’t wait to get on the pitch and show the fans what I can do.”
Chelsea receive Erling Haaland transfer update:
Chelsea have been handed a major boost in their hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland.
According to reports in the Italian media at the end of December, Frank Lampard, has told the club’s hierarchy that he would like to add the talented 20-year-old to his squad during this month’s transfer window.
But, in truth, the chances of Chelsea spending vast amounts of money this month are highly unlikely.
However, by the time the summer transfer window rolls around ahead of the start of the 2021/22 season, there is hope that the situation with the pandemic will be entirely different
And should the Blues still hold an interest in Haaland, who has scored 19 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund this season, they could have a greater chance of landing his signature.
That is because Haaland will leave Dortmund, with his agent Mino Raiola looking to secure him a move away from the Bundesliga heavyweights.
Haaland has a £68million release clause in his contract, but that does not become active until 2022, meaning any interested party would be forced to pay a much, much higher fee if they were to try and land his signature this forthcoming summer.
