The calculation is actually simple: Robert Lewandowski is still tied to FC Bayern until 2023 and could therefore come onto the market at the end of the season. At the same time, Erling Haaland will most likely be looking for a new club, because Borussia Dortmund will probably not be able to keep the Norwegian.
So it’s no wonder that a possible Lewandowski successor is being dealt with in Munich. The ‘Bild’ reports: “The name Haaland should also have been mentioned, including the estimated sums that a transfer of the BVB jewel could cost.” The total package of redemption and hand money would probably amount to up to 150 million euros.
In addition to the financial problems, it is above all a tightrope act for Bayern, on the one hand, to stay in the race at Haaland and at the same time not to alienate Lewandowski. Because a renewed contract extension with the 33-year-old is not excluded. The ‘picture’ describes the subject as “Highly sensitive”, because the scorer reacts “Annoyed by the speculations”.
It is now important to carefully find out what plans Lewandowski and Haaland have – without offending either of them. A sure instinct is required. The occupation of the storm center could become the final school-leaving exam for Hasan Salihamidzic.
