As long as Robert Lewandowski is fired by Bayern Munich, there will be no transfer for Erling Haaland, according to legend Lothar Matthaus.
Borussia Dortmund forward From Haaland the rise to prominence has been rapid. Just three years ago, the 20-year-old was trapped in the Molde reserves.
However, after significant progress in the past three years, Leeds-born Haaland is one of Europe’s most sought-after forwards.
It is understood that Real Madrid and Barcelona are attentive to the forward, who has already scored 27 goals this season. Bayern Muich have also been linked to the Norwegian star, while Manchester United failed with a move for him in January 2020.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who managed Haaland in Molde, recently admitted that he was still “following” the player.
Haaland has a clause in their deal in Dortmund. . This establishes that he can now leave the Westfallonstadion in 2022 if any club matches his release fee of £ 63 million.
Matthaus says Bayern is the “only step” for Haaland if he wants to stay in the Bundesliga. However, he doesn’t think a move is possible as long as Lewandowski is around.
Bayern ‘won’t sell’ Lewandowski
Matthaus has said Sport 1: “Haaland is already on the list of the best clubs, at the top as a forward. At Real Madrid, because with Karim Benzema they have a player of a certain age. His father has already played in the Premier League. That could be interesting too.
“He will not serve Borussia Dortmund for life. He will look for bigger clubs, get higher income. If he stays in the Bundesliga, he has only one step left: FC Bayern.
“With Kylian Mbappé he can follow in the footsteps of the other great world footballers of the last 13 or 14 years.
“He could succeed Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich in two or three years if Lewandowski thought about the end of his career. But, Lewandowski is currently in shape, Haaland is too and as long as Lewandowski is playing for Bayern, I don’t think Haaland is coming, because they won’t be able to play with a Haaland-Lewandowski double because it would take away the strengths of the other. .
Bayern will not think of selling Lewandowski. He will end his great career in Munich. Only when Lewandowski is no longer at Bayern will the place be released for Haaland in Munich. “
