helsea turned to Romelu Lukaku only after being left stunned by the demands of Erling Haaland, it has been revealed.
BILD says Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola wanted the Norwegian to be given a £820,000-a-week salary by Chelsea.
The Blues were heavily linked with a move for the highly sought after forward this summer but ended up signing Lukaku from Inter Milan for £98million instead.
Haaland’s representative’s demands could have acted as a deterrent with agent Raiola asking for wages of £820,000 per week for his client to join Chelsea.
The report also claims that Raiola wanted a £34m agent’s fee plus a salary for himself in an overall five-year package worth £275m.
