- It's that time of the year again - the rumour mill gets rolling.
- The summer transfer window is set to open on June 9.
This should be a significant transfer campaign for Chelsea as the Blues' chiefs look to back Thomas Tuchel up after reaching the FA Cup and Champions League finals. Join Tribuna.com in trying to make sense of the latest rumours.
For a while, Haaland has been identified as Chelsea's only concrete transfer target for the summer. Now, it's claimed that the Blues will have a £150 million transfer budget, with Haaland being the priority. Still, Borussia Dortmund insist that Haaland is not going anywhere this summer.
The former Blue is mentioned as the most likely alternative to Haaland if Chelsea fail to agree on a deal with Dortmund. Tuchel is, in particular, a fan, according to Bild's Christian Falk, but it will be a difficult task to convince him to leave Inter where he plays his best football.
Chelsea are planning to step up their pursuit to sign Sancho by launching an £80 million bid for the Dortmund star this summer, as per The Sun.
Judging from another report by Bild, the Liverpool winger is another former Stamford bridge man who could be targeted by the club. The Egyptian is not happy with how his contract negotiations are going, and he has openly flirted with Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona - they'd probably be his preferred choices should he leave Anfield.
It's Bild again! The German media outlet claims that the Madrid centre-back is the 'no.1' name on Chelsea's shortlist for this position. Man United are also keen on the Frenchman whose contract with Madrid expires next year.
Van Ginkel has told ESPN FC that he expects to leave Chelsea on a free transfer at the end of the 2020/21 season once his Stamford Bridge contract expires.
Chelsea have already started working on securing the exit of Emerson in the summer transfer window, as per Fabrizio Romano.
According to Corriere Dello Sport, Jose Mourinho has identified the Frenchman as a potential signing for AS Roma after failing to sign him for Man United and Tottenham. Nothing has been reported by more reliable sources so far, though.
