CHELSEA have been left frustrated that the sanctions placed on the club have restricted their transfer pursuit of Erling Haaland.

 The Blues were hit when owner Roman Abramovich was identified to have ties with Russia President Vladimir Putin following the invasion of Ukraine.

Although the club were granted a special licence to continue their fixtures, they are unable to sign any players until a takeover is completed. Now ESPN claim that a Chelsea source has revealed to them their anger and frustration that those sanctions have squandered their attempt to land Haaland.

And the 21-year-old now seems set to join Manchester City. The Premier League side looked at Haaland last summer but were told by Dortmund they were keeping him for at least another season.

The Blues instead signed £97.5m flop Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian could be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge once the transfer window reopens if they ca recoup the majority of that cash outlay.

However, a replacement would need to be found and they feel it may be too late to make a move f Haaland. City have allegedly already agreed terms with the Norwegian hotshot.
