Bayern Munich board members Uli Hoeneß and Oliver Kahn sat down for an extensive interview with Sport1 and addressed one of the hottest transfer topics related to the club: A pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

When the subject was brought up, Hoeneß immediate pointed the direction of the conversation to the clubs tenuous financial situation.

“How should we finance that? Would you rather go into the abyss and become champions at any cost? We will never do that,” Hoeneß said. “We have a starting position (Editor’s note: financially) that we haven’t had in 50 years. I think many still haven’t really grasped that: Corona is a situation that our society has never had before. A virus like this is an invisible enemy. And no one knows if it will come back. We can’t take any risks.”
