Bonke did indicate that Bayern Munich was exploring a move for Haaland at the end 2019 in an effort to make him Lewandowski’s understudy, but Halaand did not want to make a move where he would not get ample field time:
So lange Robert #Lewandowski beim #FCBayern unter Vertrag ist, ist Erling #Haaland kein Thema in München. Denn: Ende 2019 wurde ein Backup für Lewy gesucht. Aber:— Manuel Bonke (@mano_bonke) May 1, 2021
Ohne Einsatz-Garantie wollte Haaland nicht zum #FCB, @kessler_philipp @JonasBA90
As long for Robert #Lewandowski at the #FCBayern is under contract, Erling #Haaland is not an issue in Munich. Because: At the end of 2019, a backup was sought for Lewy, but Haaland did not want to go to the #FCB
At 33-years-old, Lewandowski is an older player, but does not appear to have slowed down at all — in fact, he might be better than ever. Haaland, meanwhile, reportedly has a release clause that will activate in his contract after the 2021/2022 season.
With Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi already stoking the fires around a potential move for the Polish Hitman, we could be seeing rumors linking both players to Bayern Munich for quite a while despite this news.
