Thomas Tuchel has informed the Chelsea board “to pull out of” Erling Haaland deal, journalist David Ornstein informs.
Recently Borussia Dortmund’s star has been heavily linked with the move to Chelsea, though the German side revealed their intention of keeping him one more season at Germany.
Now according to Ornstein, Tuchel believes Haaland would hinder Armando Brojas’ development, hence the Blues will be looking for cheaper alternatives with the likes of Alexander Lacazette.
