All through the summer transfer window, Chelsea were linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Chelsea were ready to splash over £100m on the young striker, but Dortmund were insistent on not selling the 21-year-old.

PSG are now the latest to be linked with the Norwegian striker, as reports claim that the French giants have put in a bid of €200m for Haaland.

Asked whether the club’s resolve could be tested by a €200m offer, Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc blasted the rumours linking their playing with another big money move.

He told Kicker: “We are a football club, not a bank! Our position is very clear and did not change.

“I assume that we will now be confronted with wild rumours for another two days. Our position is clear, I don’t need to play the parrot all the time.”

For Chelsea, the Blues have since settled with Romelu Lukaku who has already impressed since signing for the club.
