Bayern Munich looking to hand Robert Lewandowski new deal as club pull OUT of Erling Haaland transfer race

BAYERN MUNICH are not interested in a bid for Erling Haaland while they boast the 'world's best' in Robert Lewandowski.

Winner of Fifa's The Best award for 2020, the Polish forward led Bayern to treble glory last year and has continued his stunning form this season.

Therefore a potential bid for Borussia Dortmund forward Haaland is of little interest to Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The Bayern chairman told Sport Bild: "I don't know where the rumours have come from.

"I can only say one thing – we have the best footballer in the world in this position."

There will nevertheless be no shortage of suitors for Haaland in the summer with Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United all thought to be keen.

A number of top talents have swapped Signal Iduna Park for Allianz Arena over the years, including Mats Hummels, Mario Gotze and Lewandowski.

Although Haaland, 20, has hit an impressive 33 goals this season, he has been comfortably outscored by his Bundesliga rival.

Lewandowski, 32, has tallied 42 goals with Munich top of the table and on course for consecutive Champions League titles.

Under contract for another two seasons once this campaign comes to an end, the forward could soon be offered a new deal by Bayern.


Rummenigge added: "Robert Lewandowski has a contract until 2023.

"And I am convinced, with his professionalism – if you just see how he trains and takes care of his body – the end is not yet announced."

Lewandowski's hopes of reaching what may be his final World Cup in 2022 could take a decisive turn when Poland face England on Wednesday, a game he will miss through injury.
