It’s with no exaggeration that we may be witnessing the two greatest strikers in Bundesliga history battle one another on a regular basis with Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland taking Germany by storm almost every week.
Although Lewandowski has been doing it for some time now, Haaland’s impressive form at such a young age has immediately made him one of the biggest commodities in not just Germany but all of Europe.
If you’re talking about top-level strikers, it’s Lewandowski, Haaland and then everyone else. That’s why Borussia Dortmund is about to be bombarded with transfer inquiries for the Norway international in the very near future.
In fact, Haaland’s super agent, Mino Raiola, and the player’s father have already begun taking meetings with a number of Spanish giants this week in order to gauge the market for his client. Barcelona and Real Madrid kicked off those meetings on Thursday, and there will undoubtedly be many more with Haaland’s team moving forward.
What makes Haaland so special though? We’ve seen great strikers of the past like Ronaldo Nazário, Pele, Eusebio and many more, but something feels different about Haaland. Maybe it’s his signature long, blonde locks or his patented meditation pose after he scores a goal.
