Bayern Munich have just returned to the race to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. In the past, “Gray Lobster” has abandoned this deal when claiming that Haaland is not the addition they need. However, the delay in extending the contract of striker Lewandowski made the Bavarian “giant” forced to have a “resentful” move.
Right at the beginning of the summer market, Erling Haaland asked his agent Mino Raiola to find him a new destination to stabilize his future. It is known that Manchester City is leading the race to sign Haaland. The Norwegian star has a £64m release clause in his contract this summer.
However, the Premier League champion will now have to compete fiercely with the European “big guys” to own Haaland. The Dortmund star is also a target of Real Madrid in case the Spanish royal team cannot get Kylian Mbappe.
For their part, Bayern Munich are very interested in recruiting striker Haaland to put pressure on main striker Robert Lewandowski. According to Bild newspaper, Lewandowski is still hesitating with the proposal to extend the contract of the Allianz Arena team.
The Polish star is still in high form this season. However, his future is still very uncertain as many believe that Lewandowski needs a new stop to create new momentum in his career. “Gray Lobster” was not satisfied with Lewandowski’s hesitant attitude and the Bundesliga champion was ready to look for a new name to replace the 33-year-old striker. Therefore, Haaland will be a great choice for Bayern in the event Lewandowski leaves.
