FC Bayern Munich played a major role in Erling Haaland’s idea to change last summer. Father Alf-Inge revealed this in the documentary “Haaland: The Big Decision”.
“In our list, I think Manchester City is the best team. Bayern Munich is number two. We have Real Madrid number three, Paris Saint-Germain number four,” he explained. At the time of the statement, the Haaland camp had not yet decided on a club.
FC Bayern’s interest in Haaland was always an issue in the summer, but it is said to have never become concrete. This was also due to Robert Lewandowski’s future, which was still unclear at the time.
In addition, Haaland senior named other clubs that showed interest in his filius. “We also have some English teams apart from City who are pretty good…Liverpool and Chelsea. There’s also Barcelona. They’re sort of in the same row,” he clarified.
A few weeks later, Haaland decided to move to Manchester City, and BVB received compensation of 60 million euros. He signed a contract with coach Pep Guardiola’s team until 2027.
