Erling Haaland’s future looks to be very open as we approach the summer. Thomas Muller, however, seems to be against the idea of Haaland signing for Bayern Munich. Haaland has a release clause of around 80 million, which seems to be a bargain given his goal-scoring record in the Bundesliga.
Almost every big club seems to be in the race to sign him. However, Muller seems to be against the idea of playing alongside him. Muller recently spoke out on the idea of playing with one of the most sorted talents in the world.
Muller was grilled over his thoughts on potentially “feeding” Haaland with plenty of assists as a potential teammate. The German International surprised everyone with his choice of words.
“I prefer to feed my horses and rabbits.” was his answer.
His comments do not line up with Bayern’s previous transfer dealings with Dortmund. Bayern have signed some big names from Dortmund such as Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels in the past. There is still a possibility for Bayern to sign him, however, they will have to fend off interest from the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester United.
Recent reports have suggested that Real Madrid are the favorites to sign him. Their president wants both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland at the Bernabeu as their new Galacticos. There is little doubt over the inevitable signing of Kylian Mbappe, whose contract runs out in the coming summer. Erling Haaland though has the luxury of picking his own club due to the interest of all the big clubs.
Erling Haaland’s recent comments :
“I don’t really want to say too much about it, but I felt it was time for me to say something. A lot of others were speaking – so that was it. Now, I don’t want to say too much. I said what I said, and now we move on”– Haaland
He recently issued a statement stating that he will be making a decision soon over his future. There is a lot of anticipation around his future as he is touted as one of the best talents of his generation. We will have to wait until the summer to know concrete news on his decision though.
