It’s notable that Haaland, who was acquired from Borussia Dortmund in a $60 million transfer (£51m/€60m), will be announcing himself in front of his new supporters against the team that caused him so much heartache during his days in Germany.
Attempting to keep Haaland at bay in Green Bay will be Bayern Munich’s most recent signing, central defender Matthijs de Ligt, who joined from Juventus in a slightly costlier transfer operation totaling $68.55 million (€67m/£57m).Bayern and Man City, reigning league champions in Germany and England respectively, will both be returning to their home headquarters after the match as they prepare to battle for the first silverware of the season next Saturday. Bayern will be contending for the German Super Cup, while Man City will face Liverpool for the Community Shield.

Stefan Ortega, Kalvin Phillips and Julian Alvarez all made their Man City debuts in a 2-1 win over Club America. Phillips played at center back and then moved to central midfield. A host of academy products made their way onto the field in the second half.
In addition to Haaland, we’ll see whether Ruben Dias also enters the picture against Bayern after sitting out the first game. The Man City starting back line against Club America featured Luke Mbete and Nathan Ake in central defense and regular fullbacks Kyle Walker (right) and Joao Cancelo (left).
Phil Foden, John Stones, Aymeric Laporte and Ilkay Gundogan did not travel to the USA, with The Athletic reporting that Gundogan’s vaccination status was the cause.
