Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich confirmed their interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as manager Hansi Flick admitted a transfer is ‘very much possible’.
Haaland has emerged as one of the hottest commodities in Europe, and put it on full display against Bayern at the weekend.
The Norwegian international scored twice in nine minutes to stun Bayern into an early deficit.
But the match ended 4-2, thanks to a hat-trick from hitman Robert Lewandowski.
Bayern manager Flick was asked about Haaland one day replacing Lewandowski, with a deal far from out the picture.
He told Sky Germany before the game: “Very, very much is possible in life, nothing can be ruled out.
“But that is a long way off. He has a long-term contract in Dortmund and is an option for many top clubs.”
Bayern prized Lewandowski away from their rivals in 2014, having also done the same with Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels.
But Gotze and Hummels both ended up returning to Dortmund.
Bayern are not the only ones interested in 20-year-old Haaland, who improved to 19 goals in as many Bundesliga games.
Manchester United last season failed in a move for the forward, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer meeting with the player.
And now United are joined by City and Chelsea in the pursuit for the serial goalscorer.
Real Madrid are also linked with Haaland, with the view of replacing frontman Karim Benzema, 34.
Haaland’s contract expires in 2024, but a £65million release clause is understood to come into play two years beforehand.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
