BVB, rumor: Chelsea want to involve Abraham in a possible Haaland transfer
Chelsea FC have turned down offers from Premier League rivals Aston Villa and West Ham United for striker Tammy Abraham. The reason: The Blues want to hand over the attacker to Borussia Dortmund in the course of the intended transfer of Erling Haaland. That’s how he writes it Mirror.
Accordingly, Chelsea’s managers had made it clear to those interested in Abraham that the 23-year-old should be handed over to BVB for Haaland and thus the enormously high transfer fee for the Norwegian should be pressed.
Abraham is still under contract with the Champions League winner until 2023, and the Blues estimate his market value at more than 50 million euros. A sum that BVB regards as clearly too high. Especially since Abraham under Thomas Tuchel hardly played a role in the last months of the preseason.
Haaland has meanwhile resumed training with the DFB Cup winners this week.

“Sadly, this is nothing new. We have to improve as a society and hold these people accountable,” emphasized the 21-year-old. “Hate will never win.” He was still shaken by mixed emotions: “That is by far the worst feeling of my career.”
Rashford and, most recently, Saka had also missed the defeat on penalties against Italy at Wembley, immediately afterwards the trio was insulted in the social networks. Then there was a “Lovestorm” in the opposite direction. He was “ready and confident” for his penalty, assured Sancho. “Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be.”
He encouraged all young people “who have experienced similar abuse”: “Keep your head up and pursue your dreams.”
