He Bayern Munich was one of the clubs that showed the greatest interest in taking over the services of Erling Braut Haaland in the last summer transfer market before he signed with Manchester City.
The Bavarian Giant was willing to enter the bid because he wanted to finalize the arrival of the Norwegian striker so that he would become the team’s main reference for the future. His talent and his experience in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund, the two main reasons why they wanted to bet on him.
The reason why Bayern Munich ruled out the signing of Haaland in the summer
But they ended up ruling out their signing before Erling Haaland signed for Manchester City and Oliver Kahn himself confirmed in an interview for the French newspaper L’Equipe the reason why they did not enter the final bid to take over his services.
“The transfer itself would have been great, but we are not doing anything to worry about the financial stability of the club. Bayern Munich has no debts. We are working to ensure that the ECA applies new rules for 2024/2025, so that they are strictly adhered to. It is important for all European football,” said the executive director of the German team.
Bayern are looking for a center forward for the summer, but Oliver Kahn’s words confirm that they will not make such a high investment in the summer. The names that have sounded loud in recent weeks are Harry Kane from Tottenham, Victor Osimhen from Napoli and Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt.
