Erling Haaland will not be joining Bayern Munich anytime soon, Markus Babbel has said. Babbel recently revealed that the deal is impossible because Bayern cannot afford the striker.
According to him, only English clubs can afford the Borussia Dortmund forward right now because they have a different kind of money in the country.
Babbel added that Bayern will have to spend around €140m and €180m for the youngster and that deal is too expensive for the German giant right now.
His words, “The only country that can buy Haaland at the moment is England, they have a different kind of money. ”
“There is no chance that Bayern could get him because you would have to spend between €140m and €180m. Bayern can’t do it. The whole package is too expensive. Raiola, he is not the cheapest agent in the world, he wants to have good money as well. If you pay so much money, he has to be the best-paid player in the squad. The whole package is like €500-600m and Bayern is not in the situation at the moment to do it.”
“Bayern is so happy with Robert Lewandowski. Haaland is a massive talent but there are 12 years in between and Lewandowski has more experience and is still 100 per cent fit. He knows the club, he knows the pressure and he can handle it. I can’t believe that Bayern would change Lewandowski with Haaland.”
On Lewa, “I never thought that anyone could catch this unbelievable record from Gerd Muller. Now both of the biggest strikers that have played for Bayern Munich have 40 goals.”
“I really cross my fingers [against Augsburg on Saturday] that Lewandowski doesn’t score. If these two guys end on 40-40 goals, that would be fantastic. I am a football romantic. Without Gerd Muller, Bayern Munich wouldn’t be this club that it is now. He was so important for this club. If you have a goalscorer like him, then you win titles.”
“Now Lewandowski is a fantastic striker and for me the best number nine in the world. He’s a bit different to Messi or Ronaldo but for me he is the best number nine. It would be fantastic if both of the best strikers that Bayern have ever had end on 40 goals and share the record.”
