Thu 10 December 2020 | 13:35

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinze Rummenigge has reacted to rumors that the club is interested in signing Erling Haaland.

Erling Haaland

is one of the best strikers in the world and has performed exceptionally well in the

Dortmund

squad. With his exceptional performances, many teams have become eager to attract and sign this Norwegian star.

Bayern Munich

is one of the teams that has been rumored to be seeking the 20-year-old prodigy but now the club's CEO has reacted to these rumors.

"We don’t need Haaland as we have Lewandowski, but he’s an animal, he’s scoring a lot of goals, he deserves the Golden Boy”

said

Rummenigge

.

Robert Lewandowski

joined Bayern in 2014 from Dortmund. Since then, he has scored 261 goals in 304 games he appeared in for Bayern. He has established himself as one of the best goalscorers in the world. With his spectacular performances this season, he was the favorite to win

Ballon d’Or

, but the award was canceled due

COVID-19

pandemic.

"Robert was the best of them all in 2020,"

Rummenigge added

"He scored a lot of goals and won five trophies. It was really impossible to do better than him.

"I called Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA, and point out that it’s not nice that in 2020, without the Ballon d’Or, there will be a hole in the roll of honour for the best player in the world.

"The most important leagues, despite the coronavirus, have come to an end and the strongest players have made a difference even during the time of Covid-19. Lewandowski most of all."
