‘Better than Haaland!’ – Chelsea fans all say the same thing as latest summer deal is announced

'Better than Haaland!' - Chelsea fans all say the same thing as latest summer deal is announced

Chelsea have experienced a difficult start to this summer’s transfer window as far as getting new signings through the door is concerned.

The Blues, who will travel to Ireland on Tuesday for a pre-season training camp, are yet to add a single player to their first-team squad this summer, meaning head coach Thomas Tuchel is still yet to make a single signing since arriving at Stamford Bridge back in January.

Although Chelsea are working hard behind the scenes to make it possible to bring in new recruits, frustrations from some supporters are beginning to creep through, with some a little concerned by the lack of new additions.

However, it is important to remember that Chelsea are chasing deals for players who are valued at over £100million, those being West Ham United ace Declan Rice and Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund. Haaland is at the very top of Chelsea’s wish list this summer, with the west London club desperate to strengthen their attacking ranks with a new out-and-out striker.

But although Tuchel has not yet added a new striker to his squad this summer, he has seen the club successfully tie down one of the their most exciting prospects to a new contract, that being young striker Armando Broja.

The 19-year-old has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal at Stamford Bridge, meaning he will remain at the club until the summer of 2026.

On committing his future to the Blues, Broja told the club’s website : “I am really excited to be signing a new contract with Chelsea. Having come through the Academy here it was a special moment for me to make my first-team debut last year, before gaining further experience on loan at Vitesse last season.

“I want to build on these foundations and I am really looking forward to progressing and making an impact at Chelsea in the years to come.”

Whilst it is a big boost for Chelsea to have tied Broja down to a new long-term deal, some Blues supporters have reacted to the news in a light-hearted, jovial manner.

That is because, in response to Chelsea announcing confirmation of Broja’s new contract, a collection of Blues supporters have replied by saying that Broja is a better player than Haaland. It is clear that those comments have been delivered in a tongue-in-cheek manner, suggesting that they are, potentially, growing frustrated with the Blues’ pursuit of the Dortmund striker and hoped to see his arrival at Stamford Bridge announced instead.

Below, football.london has taken a close look at what some Chelsea fans have had to say on social media.

As you can see from the messages above, several Blues fans have claimed that Broja is a better player than Haaland. Whilst some of those who have made the admission may genuinely mean it, the likelihood is that those comments have been posted with a sense of sarcasm.

It is no secret that Chelsea are desperate to sign Haaland this summer, but any sort of deal for the Norwegian ace is not proving to be straight forward, with Dortmund determined not to lose him.

Nevertheless, some Chelsea fans, it would seem, are growing frustrated and want to see the club sign the striker as soon as possible, especially judging by the comments in response to Broja’s new deal.

Dortmund are on the cusp of earning a £73million windfall from the sale of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, meaning they are not under as much pressure to sell Haaland to bolster their finances.
