With finances touched by the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the Bayern Munich cannot afford to sign Erling Haaland, the Borussia Dortmund prodigy whose price is estimated at around 100 million euros, told ‘Sport Bild’ this Wednesday Oliver Kahn, the next president of the Bavarian club. The German’s statements are a great relief not only for BVB, but also for Barcelona and Real Madrid, two clubs that are after the hiring of the Nordic attacker in the summer transfer market.
“I’m sorry, but those who speak (about this signing) have not understood anything about the situation. A transfer estimated at more than 100 million euros (121.5 million dollars) is absolutely unthinkable for Bayern at this time “, declared the international exporter, appointed to replace Karl-Heinz Rummenigge at the head of the club in 2022, allowing the Norwegian forward to emigrate to another championship and not stay like that in the Bundesliga.
Kahn also explained that Bayern Munich already has an exceptional scorer in Robert Lewandowski: “It can maintain its level for a few years. Reason enough for us not to think of Haaland”Said the World Finalist in Japan-Korea 2002.
The Norwegian, who cost Borussia Dortmund in January 2020 a total of 20 million euros ($ 24.3 million) from RB Salzburg, multiplied his market value by five. Despite the fact that the Dortmund leaders repeat that Haaland will be at the club next season, several European greats such as Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City seem ready to take on the services of the great soccer sensation of the last two years.
His scoring records are impressive: he has 20 goals in 16 Champions League games. This season he tops the list of greatest scorers with 10 goals in “Champions”, despite the fact that his team was eliminated in the quarterfinals. In comparison, Cristiano Ronaldo, the best scorer of all time in the Champions League (134 goals), needed 56 games to overcome the 20-goal barrier, Messi achieved it in 40 games.
