Transfer: Bayern Munich reveal why they didn’t sign Ronaldo, Haaland this summer


Bayern Munich chief, Hasan Salihamidzic, has opened up on why the club didn’t sign Erling Haaland or Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

Haaland joined Manchester City in a £51million transfer from Borussia Dortmund in July.

The Norway striker was heavily linked with a move to Bayern before joining City.

“In the end it didn’t work out for various reasons. I don’t want to blame the player for that. He chose what he thinks is better for him,” Salihamidzic said on Bild’s Phasenmäher podcast.

Ronaldo was also linked with the Bundesliga champions, as he continues his desperate bid to play in the Champions League this season.

However, Salhihamidzic has made it clear it was a difficult deal to do and the squad is already stacked with attacking options in their prime.

“When you now see how our attack is equipped, even without Robert Lewandowski. It’s just difficult from a sporting and financial point of view.

“We have eight players for four positions up front. We have established top players who are in the prime of their footballing age,” he added.
