The Bayern manager has said they will not try to buy the Dortmund striker despite having “the best player in the world” in attack.
Bayern Munich won’t try to sign Erling Haaland this summer, with Bavarian club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisting the reigning European champion won’t sign another striker as long as they have Robert Lewandowski. Erling Haaland has emerged as one of the most formidable strikers in world football over the past two seasons and has a superb goal scoring record in Germany since moving to Dortmund in January 2020.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, however, says he does not know where the rumors are coming from about talks for a transfer to Bayern Munich, and that they will not enter a bidding war for the Norwegian during the deal. transfers this summer. The Bayern manager told Bild: “I don’t know where the rumors are coming from. I can only say one thing: we have the best footballer in the world in this position. Robert Lewandowski has a contract until 2023. “
Almost all of Europe’s big clubs are linked with a move for Haaland, including Manchester City. Premier League leaders once had Erling’s father Alf-Inge Haaland in their squad, and appear poised to enter the transfer market to sign a striker this summer after announcing Sergio Aguero’s departure , at the end of his contract, who left the club after a decade at the Etihad Stadium.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been closely linked with the Norwegian striker, as have Premier League rivals Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. Arguably the two best forwards in the world are currently in the Bundesliga, with Erling Haaland leading Borussia Dortmund’s attack wonderfully while Robert Lewandowski is in the form of a life for Bayern Munich.

This season Erling Haaland has scored 21 goals in as many Bundesliga games for Borussia Dortmund – an incredible record, but one that is overshadowed by Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 35 astonishing league goals in just 25 German league appearances. in 2020-2021. The Pole could even set the new record in the competition, since the current record is 40 goals.
Borussia Dortmund supporters can be reassured after Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s statements. The risk of seeing Bayern Munich stealing their star once again, as was the case in the days of Mario Götze and Robert Lewandowski in the past, does not seem to be relevant. On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund will have a hard time resisting the onslaught of other European clubs for Erling Haaland this summer.
