Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich confirmed their interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as manager Hansi Flick admitted a transfer is ‘very much possible’.
Haaland has emerged as one of the hottest commodities in Europe, and put it on full display against Bayern at the weekend.
The Norwegian international scored twice in nine minutes to stun Bayern into an early deficit.
But the match ended 4-2, thanks to a hat-trick from hitman Robert Lewandowski.
Bayern manager Flick was asked about Haaland one day replacing Lewandowski, with a deal far from out the picture.
He told Sky Germany before the game: “Very, very much is possible in life, nothing can be ruled out.
“But that is a long way off. He has a long-term contract in Dortmund and is an option for many top clubs.”
Bayern prized Lewandowski away from their rivals in 2014, having also done the same with Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels.
But Gotze and Hummels both ended up returning to Dortmund.
