Daily Schmankerl: Erling Haaland will impact Bayern Munich’s plans with Robert Lewandowski? Benjamin Pavard angered an expert; Real Madrid and Liverpool to trade Eden Hazard and Mo Salah ?; PSG want Sergio Agüero; and more!
According to a report from Sport Bild (via the Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), if Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland shows interest in a move to Bayern Munich, the Bavarians could potentially adjust their plans on a possible extension of star striker Robert Lewandowski:
If there is no clear signal from Erling Haaland that he would like to move to Munich, Bayern are very likely to extend Robert Lewandowski’s contract beyond 2023 [@SPORTBILD]

Wow … talk about a tough choice. Stick with the current best player in the game – or invest in a player who might one day be at that level and who is much younger?
As I always say, why not both?
Former Olympique Marseille defender Eric Di Meco doesn’t think Bayern Munich Benjamin Pavard should have argued his case in front of the media to try to convince people that he is a good player:
This weekend, Benjamin Pavard took advantage of an interview with Canal + to express his dissatisfaction with the treatment he receives from the French public.
Tired of being criticized, the 2018 world champion demanded more respect. But for Eric Di Meco, the Bayern Munich defender should not have responded to criticism. And here’s why:
âI remember his debut in Lille. He is world champion, he plays for Bayern and he will stop at criticism when he has a manager who trusts him. He must be at the top and above all, he must be aware that when he does this kind of outing, he lends a crack. When he makes the comparison with Hakimi and Alexander-Arnold, he suffers from the comparison. We must be aware that we have been lacking a right-back in France for a long time. Just know how lucky you are, how generational you are. He benefits from a lack of a right-back in his generation and a coach who does not hesitate to play central defenders in the corridors. Enjoy it, âhe said CMR sport.
I’m in the minority these days, but I don’t think Pavard is a bad player. The Frenchman, however, did not help himself by granting this lengthy interview to Canal +. I understand what he was trying to say and the point he was trying to make, but it didn’t turn out the way he expected and he just reeked of “woe to me” – which is a horrible look. for any professional athlete.
Granted, Pavard doesn’t look as bad as Ben Simmons in Philadelphia (what a pet, flabby, sweet baby he is) right now, but Pavard just needs to let his playing on the field speak for him. Until he gets it all figured out in the field, talking is cheap.
I actually like Pavard’s play and what he can bring to a team, but he hasn’t been great this season and it seems like things have entered his head a bit. If I had to pick a result for him I would almost say he just needs a change of scenery and go to a club that will play him as a center-back. I would like Bayern Munich to keep him (especially if Niklas SÃ¼le runs away), but maybe it would be better if he did it again.
Anyway, if you missed our story coverage – or just want more of a reason to pile on Pavard – check out Ineednoname’s full interview coverage in the related stories below. .
I may have no affinity for real Madrid Where Liverpool, but that sort of thing struck me as fun as a foreigner at both clubs. Liverpool’s Mo Salah is having a fantastic season, while Eden Hazard has never reunited after moving to Real Madrid. Naturally, they are linked in an exchange rumor:
The rumors of Eden Hazard do not ebb. From week to week it seems clearer that the future of the Belgian does not belong to Real Madrid. Latest comments in the British press: a mega swap between Los Blancos and Liverpool fc. As reported by The Sun, Real are planning to gift JÃ¼rgen Klopp Hazard’s club along with additional millions to Mo Salah.
One of the main transfer targets is the Egyptian Salah. Hazard came to Madrid in the summer of 2019 for the club’s record-breaking â¬ 115million fee, but has yet to meet the high expectations of the Spanish capital. The rumors of Eden Hazard do not ebb.

I’m not going to lie … part of me wants this to happen just to see the reaction from our Liverpool fan Tommy Adams.
Paris Saint-Germain could make an effort to bring in FC Barcelona‘s Sergio Aguero … in an effort to keep Lionel Messi happy. Mauro Icardi would then travel to Barca in return:
According to El Nacional, Paris Saint-Germain have offered Barcelona a player swap in order to keep Lionel Messi happy at the club.
Lionel Messi left Barcelona during the summer transfer window after club management claimed it would be impossible to maintain it due to financial restrictions. The Argentine quickly reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain, who not only gave him a great project but also several friends.
Sergio Aguero will move to Paris, while Mauro Icardi will return to Barcelona, ââaccording to the planned deal. The two attackers would be traded on an equal basis in the Argentina deal.
On the contrary, an acquisition of Aguero by PSG could potentially make them less likely to engage in the pursuit of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. So … go for it!
Because I’m stupid, I forgot to throw that prediction in the last warm-up of the weekend. So this is it :
Benfica are a strong, proud and loaded with veterans team that won’t be easy, especially at home. Bayern Munich, however, are just too deep and too talented for the home team, even with Alphonso Davies missing and potentially without Leon Goretzka.
Julian Nagelsmann will have some interesting roster decisions to make, but even if he has to move Lucas Hernandez to left-back and use Marcel Sabitzer in the starting XI, the Bayern Munich side will be strong.
Prediction: Benfica 0-3 Bayern Munich
Ah … the Champions League is back, baby!
Bayern Munich will travel to Lisbon, Portugal to take on Benfica in what should be a very entertaining match between an extremely rich and talented side for the visitors and an experienced and veteran side at Benfica.
Here’s what we have in the works for this episode:
- The recent form of the two clubs.
- A few players Bayern Munich fans should watch out for: Darwin Nunez and Julian Weigl. Nunez has been loosely linked to the Bavarians, while Weigl is a former Borussia Dortmund and the hope of the German national team, which seems to have found a comfort zone in Portugal.
- A prediction for training and why we could see Lucas Hernandez at the back and Marcel Sabitzer replace Leon Goretzka.
- A prognosis on the final score.
Seeing Robert Lewandowski’s magnificent back heel goal from all these angles is just plain cool:
Borussia Dortmund’s Reinier on his way to Benfica? There are a few whispers about a move:
The 19-year-old Brazilian, on loan from Real Madrid until the end of the season, is said to be in concrete negotiations with Benfica Lisbon. This is reported by the Spanish AS.
As a result, the attacking player’s environment assumes that the contract at Dortmund will be terminated in January. At Benfica, Reinier would meet his former coach Jorge Jesus, under whom he made his breakthrough at Flamengo.
At BVB, however, the winger never really got his chance. âHe must show it in every training session and at a high level in the Bundesliga and the Champions League and be able to afford training on a long-term basis, every day for weeks. We all see how great a footballer he is, âcoach Marco Rose said last time around.
He may soon be able to prove his skills at Benfica.
An international break has just ended and Bayern Munich have returned to action with a dominant 5-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen. This game was meant to be a huge test for Julian Nagelsmann, as Leverkusen was unbeaten in the Bundesliga and making one of his best starts in the league. Safe to say, die Werkself didn’t fight much.
In this episode, Tom and Ineednoname discuss:
- The result of Leverkusen’s game and how convincing Nagelsmann looks so far.
- The big positive points that we see in the team.
- What improvements are still needed.
- How Lucas Hernandez’s legal issues affect Bayern Munich’s image.
- What happens if Lucas goes to jail? Discuss the issue of depth, especially the consequences for Alphonso Davies.
- The dead end careers of Michael Cuisance and Marc Roca.
