Like every other major club, Bayern Munich will be in the competition for Erling Haaland.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich will be firmly in the race to acquire Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland next summer, when the Norwegian phenom will reportedly be available to a club that can trigger his €75-€80 million release clause.

The Bavarians, who have been reluctant to spend much during this transfer window, could be playing the long game if Romano is to be believed. Romano, of course, typically only releases information after he has confirmed it with multiple sources:

While the competition for Haaland figures to be steep, some deep-pocketed bidders could be out of the mix by then. Paris Saint-Germain just signed Lionel Messi, Chelsea just acquired Romelu Lukaku, Real Madrid is supposedly hot on the trail of Kylian Mbappe, and Manchester City is zeroing in on Harry Kane.

Should those deals go through (a big if), Bayern Munich, FC Barcelona (and its €1.35 billion of debt), Manchester United, Juventus, and Liverpool could end up being the most viable bidders for Haaland.
