Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels has warned Erling Haaland that ‘the grass isn’t always greener’ amid rumors linking him to a departure from the German giants.
The Norwegian forward was set to be considered by Chelsea during the summer transfer window, as Blues boss Thomas Tuchel sought to bolster his forward.
Ultimately, Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku – the Belgian who returned to Stamford Bridge in a £98 million deal from Inter Milan.
That hasn’t completely silenced rumors of Haaland’s departure, though, and he could still be on the move next summer when his release clause is reportedly reduced to just £68m.
Despite this, Dortmund centre-back Hummels isn’t convinced the 21-year-old will enjoy his time elsewhere as much and has called on him to stay at Signal Iduna Park.
Speaking to Sport Bild, the German said: “The grass is not always greener on the other side. You really have to be aware of that in football.
“It’s worth a lot if you have a good environment, feel comfortable with the guys and can be really successful too. You have to appreciate that, that is not self-evident at every club. So we have a lot to offer Erling.”
Since coming from Austria’s Red Bull Salzburg, he has racked up 68 goals in just 67 appearances in all competitions.
Meanwhile, he has also started the new season in glowing form, with 11 goals and a further four assists in just eight appearances for those Schwarzgelben.
Haaland has just under three years left on his current contract with the Bundesliga.
