Borussia Dortmund have tweeted a post of their star man Erling Haaland back in training – and some ambitious Chelsea fans on Twitter feel they have spotted a sign he could be on his way to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have been heavily linked with the 20-year-old already this summer.
Sky Sports claims the Bundesliga striker is a “top target” for them. However, it could be “mission impossible” to try bring him to England.
Dortmund have tweeted goal machine Haaland back in training with them, which has sparked an interesting theory from some Chelsea fans.
A selection of Blues supporters on social media are deciding to compare the Haaland transfer saga to last summer’s pursuit of Kai Havertz.
They are referring to a number of social media posts at the time from German club Bayer Leverkusen, who were trying to keep Havertz away from Chelsea.
There was a vicious cycle of Blues fans bombarding all Leverkusen tweets with ‘sign for Chelsea’ propaganda.
22-year-old attacker Havertz did end up securing a move to Stamford Bridge though before scoring the winner in a Champions League final during his first season.
There may be some wishful thinking from Chelsea fans hoping history repeats itself with Haaland. It’s no surprise so many are desperate for him to join when he’s scored 57 goals in 59 appearances during a year and a half at Dortmund.
Here are some Chelsea fans responding to Dortmund’s post of Haaland:
