Former Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has predicted that Real Madrid will attempt to sign both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland in the summer.
Rummenigge was on the board in Bavaria for three decades, finally being succeeded by Oliver Kahn as CEO in July. Since then he has remained in the public eye, never shying away from the big topics.
In his latest interview with German newspaper Bild, Rummenigge gave his tip for where Haaland may eventually end up, explaining: “I don’t think he’s going to Liverpool. I know the owner very well and it is not that he is exactly known for opening the box so much. As for Haaland, he would not rule out Real Madrid. Maybe they will open the box a bit more in the summer and possibly get Haaland and Kylian Mbappé.”
Haaland has started the season in electric form, registering five goals and three assists in his opening four Bundesliga games. Mbappe – whose PSG contract expires in the summer – has also impressed, scoring four times already this campaign.
