Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel ‘left Dortmund on bad terms which could have impact on Erling Haaland transfer chances’

The report adds that it’s ‘very unlikely’ the Bundesliga outfit will allow Haaland to seal a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Although Tuchel won a German Cup at Dortmund, his time there is best-remembered for the bust-ups he had.

There were disagreements with senior players, including Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Roman Weidenfeller.

While Tuchel also clashed with former chief scout Sven Mislantat, who would later work for Arsenal.

He was then sacked by Dortmund with chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke saying he was ‘worn out’ dealing with the manager.

But Tuchel has since been forced to turn back to his old side with Chelsea one of many clubs chasing Haaland’s signature at the end of the season.

Club chiefs are reportedly willing to give the move the green light, IF the 47-year-old can guide them into next season’s Champions League.

Haaland meanwhile could miss out on a spot in Europe’s top competition with Dortmund four points adrift of four-placed Eintracht Frankfurt.

And Micah Richards recently claimed that Chelsea will be ‘scary’ next season if they land the Norway international.

It was previously reported that Timo Werner could be used as a makeweight in the Blues’ bid to land Haaland.

But the misfiring German is said to be keen to fight for his spot under Tuchel despite struggling since arriving at Stamford Bridge.
