Bayern Munich’s Hasan Salihamidzic says club would be “amateurs” if it wasn’t looking at Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland

As Walter Sobchak would say...”They’re a bunch of bleeping amateurs”...or are they?

During an interview on Sport1-Doppelpass, Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic touched on his club’s interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, who might be the most sought-after player in the world.

While Haaland is almost certain to stay at Borussia Dortmund for this season, there is some thought that he could move on next summer when his release clause is rumored to drop to €75 million — a figure that would make him attractive to any club that will be able to afford that number in 2022:

When questioned about Haaland playing a role at Bayern Munich in the future, Salihamidzic gave an evasive — but predictable — response (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia in the second tweet below):

While it should come as no surprise that Bayern Munich would at least have one eye on Haaland, Salihamidzic’s transfer record has come under fire a bit of late and there might not be any player more certain to succeed for the next 10 years than Haaland.

If there was such a thing as a “can’t miss” player, it would be used to describe the Norwegian phenom.
