Fan sent stunning message after sensational £174 million Chelsea offer made for headline taker!

Chelsea’s reported mega-money offer for Erling Haaland ‘defies sense’, Simon Jordan has declared

The transfer window is just a few weeks from opening and that means that Thomas Tuchel will look to get the players that he believes will help bring that Premier League title to Stamford Bridge

Reports on Monday linked the Blues with a whopping £174million move to sign the Borussia Dortmund sensation as Thomas Tuchel steps up his pursuit of a goalscorer this summer.

Haaland is already one of the most deadly strikers in world football and netted a very impressive 41-goals last season, which means that he has already netted a stunning 170 goals in his career, and he is only 20.

But talkSPORT pundit Jordan believes the proposed transfer is further proving his view that money is killing the game and making it impossible for smaller clubs to compete.

“When you’re talking about players being bought for £60m, £70m or £80m – aren’t we already pushing the envelope?”, said the White and Jordan host.

“When we start to move into the territory of a quarter of a billion pounds, or the best part of 20 per cent of a billion – you’re moving into a territory that is ludicrous.

“It’s ridiculous, and that’s before the idea that he’s going to get £25m, £26m or £27m-a-year.

“It’s not because I’m a football club owner who’s had his head handed to him economically, but because it’s something fundamentally wrong with these numbers.

“They’re not justified, these are football players that are operating in an industry that isn’t awash with money, it isn’t justifying it.

“He’s not like a movie star who carries £150m for a studio. Most football clubs are economically on the cusp of not making money. They may have some capital value if one day someone comes along and spends £3bn on x, y and z – which has has never yet happened, by the way.

“For me, it just feels like it defies logic, it defies sense and there’s no justification behind it.”

He added: “It’s going to need to be a long term investment but like anything, you can’t guarantee the performance of a player or the longevity of how long his career will be.

“We’ve got a player who is operating at a very high level at 20 years or age, but when you get into territory of £150m quid, it’s starting to make football ridiculous.

“Neymar’s PSG transfer was ridiculous, it was obscene. It’s a vulgar spend of money and it’s driving up a wage structure that is insane.”
