” It’s way too expensive for us “Said Oliver Kahn, Bayern president, a few days ago about a possible transfer of Erling Haaland (21, Borussia Dortmund) to Bavaria. But, behind this speech, the discussions between the parties would not be completely at a standstill.
Indeed, according to the German daily PictureHaaland reportedly met Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern’s sporting director, in early March while spending a few days in Munich. Contacted by the daily, the Bavarian club did not deny the holding of this meeting. At the same time, Oliver Kahn also went to Monaco to meet Mino Raiola about Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui (Ajax Amsterdam), whose agent manages the interests. Hard to believe that the future of the Norwegian striker was not discussed on this occasion.
Crowned German champion for the 10th time in a row, a record, last weekend by beating Dortmund (3-1), Bayern Munich is busy behind the scenes to draw the outlines of its future workforce. And if, on the Bayern side, the most burning file concerns the extension of the contract of Robert Lewandowski whose lease expires in June 2023, the fate of one could well depend on the other.
