Dortmund CEO makes ‘crazy offers claim’ with Blues looking to seal £172 million double summer deals
Hans-Joachim Watzke is not expecting any crazy offers for Chelsea targets Erling Haaland or Jadon Sancho in the summer window.
It is no secret that Sancho and Haaland are two of the most talks about Bundesliga stars in the game right now, as their names are constantly being linked with a move to the Premier League.
Haaland is man that is wanted by Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea with reports suggesting that he would love to add a top-class striker to the attack, while Sancho is also a player that has been heavily linked with a move to the Bridge over the past few seasons, but Watzke is not expecting eye-watering offers to be tabled.
WHAT HAS HE SAID ON THE PAIR?
“Overall, I don’t think that crazy things will happen,” Dortmund CEO Watzke told Sky Germany.
Aside from a couple of exceptions – namely Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City – Watzke expects to see a cutting of cloth in football.
“I know the situation in the European leagues very well, and the clouds are getting darker instead of lighter,” said Watzke.
Look, it will be very interesting to see just what happens with the players in the coming transfer windows as they will surely be getting a move away from Dortmund, and if i was Chelsea boss, i would be looking to wrap up deals.
They would send a real statement to the rest of the Premier League that we are here to challenge for that Premier League title, which would worry many top clubs.
