Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are reportedly becoming stronger by every passing day of the transfer window. It might be very tough to argue over the fact that these clubs are two of the most well-run and successful clubs in the world in terms of management, particularly Bayern Munich who has now had a history of so many successful transfers over the years.
Borussia Dortmund bid farewell to one of the best young strikers in the world, Erling Haaland as the striker sealed a move to English Champions Manchester City. It will be a mammoth job for the yellow wall to look for a suitable replacement for the Norwegian. But it seems like they have made up their mind over who they want to bring in to bolster their squad. Having already signed Karim Adiyemi, Dortmund have reportedly agreed on personal terms with Ajax starlet, Sebastian Haller.
Dortmund reportedly have submitted a $35 million offer to Ajax which will be hard to turn down for the Dutch champions. A 5-year deal has already been finalized with Haller, who will be awaiting his club’s green light to leave for Germany. Haller enjoyed a breakthrough 2021/22 campaign netting over 30 goals for the Dutch side. It was however his stellar Champions League scoring run that attracted Europe’s elites. Having also been linked to Bayern, Haller ended up choosing their German rivals instead.
Bayern Munich seems set for 2022/23
Bayern Munich, on the other hand, have had quite a transfer window. They have already sealed the moves of Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax and Sadio Mane from Liverpool in pretty astonishing deals which once again proves how money efficient they are. They were also looking to steal Haller until Dortmund stepped in and sealed his move. And now the German champions are running after Stuttgart CF Sasa Kalajdzic, who won’t be easy to get because of other potential buyers across Europe.
Bayern Munich will be looking to resolve the situation of Robert Lewandowski also very soon as his potential departure will be affecting a lot of things at the club. The Polish striker is apparently close to a move to Spanish giants Barcelona, having already agreed on personal terms with them. But Bayern won’t be too keen to let someone who has scored around 50 goals for the last 2-3 seasons so easily. It will be interesting to see how these moves develop over the next few days.
