The Norwegian star has attracted a lot of attention from all over Europe.

Bayern Munich

legend Lothar Matthaus has claimed that if Erling Haaland want to stay in the Bundesliga, Bayern will be his only option, but as long as Robert Lewandowski is not in the Allianz Arena, the transfer will not be final.

There are many rumors about the separation of the 20-year-old


striker. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are among the teams that are closely monitoring his situation, but Matthaus believes that Haaland has the potential to become another historic transfer between Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

“Haaland is already on the list of top clubs, right at the top as a striker. At Real Madrid, because with Karim Benzema they have a player of a certain age. His father has already played in the Premier League. That could be interesting too,"

Matthaus told

“He will not serve Borussia Dortmund for life. He'll look for bigger clubs, he'll get a higher income. If he stays in the Bundesliga, there is only one step for him: FC Bayern.”

Matthaus added on Haaland’s potential:

“With Kylian Mbappe he can follow in the footsteps of the other great world footballers of the last 13 or 14 years. 

“He could succeed Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich in two or three years if Lewandowski should think about the end of his career. But, Lewandowski is currently in form, Haaland too and as long as Lewandowski is playing for Bayern, I don't think Haaland will come, because they will not be able to play with a Haaland-Lewandowski double because they would take away each other's strengths.

“Bayern will not think about selling Lewandowski. He will end his great career in Munich. Only when Lewandowski is no longer with Bayern will the place for Haaland in Munich be freed up.”
