Bayern Munich’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, has admitted they are interested in signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.


Haaland netted a hat-trick as Dortmund began their German Cup defence with a 3-0 win over Wehen Wiesbaden on Saturday.

It took his tally to a stunning 60 goals in 60 games for the Bundesliga side.

Dortmund have slapped a £150m price tag on the Norway striker’s head to ward off interest from Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

But Salihamidzic has suggested Bayern could be preparing to pounce at the end of the 2021/2022 season, when the striker’s £68million release clause comes into play.

“This is a top player who the whole world probably wants,” said Salihamidzic, quoted by Sport1 .

“Of course we are looking at him. Otherwise we would be complete amateurs.”
