Bayern Munich CEO Kahn rules out bid for Haaland

Bayern Munich chief executive Oliver Kahn has ruled the Bundesliga club out of making a run at signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund this summer. 

Haaland continues to be linked with a move away from Dortmund with Barcelona and Real Madrid keen to sign the Norwegian as well as Manchester clubs. Haaland's father, Alf Inge and Raiola were in Spain to hold talks over a possible move to Barcelona and Madrid. 

Munich are also reportedly keen on signing the Norwegian as Robert Lewandowski's replacement. However, Kahn says the forward is simply too expensive for the club to consider signing him this summer. 

"Sorry, anyone who talks about it does not understand the situation. A package that costs more than 100 million euros is currently unthinkable for FC Bayern," he told Sport Bild. 

"Robert Lewandowski still has a two-year contract here and his performance is beyond question – he has 39 Bundesliga goals. That’s why we don’t have to worry about Haaland today."

His contract with the Bundesliga side is set to expire in the summer of 2024 and according to reports, he has a €75m (£66m) release clause, which comes into effect in the summer of 2022.
