Bayern Munich have very little chance of buying Erling Haaland in 2022, according to former club chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who says it will be difficult for the Borussia Dortmund striker to be held in Germany.
Haaland’s amazing skills in the area during his 18 months at Dortmund have earned him the title of the most talented young striker of the generation.
It is therefore no surprise that a large number of European clubs have shown interest in him.
Bayern are among the clubs rumored to love the 21-year-old. The German giants have a history of luring Dortmund players, but Rummenigge expects the Norwegian’s next club to be away from Germany.
Asked if Bayern could buy Haaland next year, Rummenigge said: “He has become a major figure in the league.”
“But I am afraid he will not stay in the Bundesliga. The numbers that are circulating show that it is difficult to keep it in Germany. I believe that his future is abroad,” he added.
Haaland has a three-year contract with Dortmund but reportedly has a release clause worth 75 million euros, which becomes active next summer.
