Haaland on Bayern’s pursuit: “It feels disrespectful”

Haaland’s future was one of the biggest topics of the summer transfer window.

The striker had many of the continent’s biggest clubs trying to sign him.

Among those teams was Bayern Munich who pushed to bring him to the Allianz Arena.

However, speaking about this in the new documentary, in a part filmed earlier this year, the Man City forward appears irked by their move.

The Norwegian believes it was disrespectful to club legend Robert Lewandowski to try and sign him whilst he was still there.

Haaland told viaplay: “If I try to imagine how Lewandowski thinks...

“I don’t know how many goals and titles he has for the club. Then I do actually feel a little sorry for him.

“At the same time, it’s a chance for him to take the next step in his career.

“It feels disrespectful, but at the same time it is an opportunity for him.”
