Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern
Between Bayern Munich and Robert Lewandowski, a page may be about to turn. Eager to change air this summer, the 33-year-old striker has made a firm decision for his future.
In its edition of the day, L’Equipe affirms that the choice of the Pole is made: he wishes to join FC Barcelona from this summer. The Warsaw native, under contract until June 2023, believes that such an opportunity may not come again. Indeed, nothing says that the Bara will still be interested in a year, when he will be free.
Lewandowski didn’t appreciate contact with Hland
If this soap opera could look like a stroke of pressure at the start, to force the hand of Munich decision-makers in the negotiations concerning an extension, Lewandowski finally intends to leave. His wife, Anna, has also announced on social networks that she is starting to take Spanish lessons.
Today, the divide between the player and his management is real. Especially since the top European scorer (48 goals this season) did not digest the contacts between his leaders and Erling Hland. Also according to the sports daily, Lewandowski was annoyed to learn that sports director Hasan Salihamidzic had met the crack of Dortmund, a month and a half ago, to discuss a possible transfer this summer. Eventually, Bayern gave up on the Norwegian Cyborg track, due to his overly high claims, but the damage was done. Trust seems broken.
Bayern don’t want to sell him, but…
So far, Bayern remain firm in their discourse. The German champion does not see the point of letting his formidable striker go and thinks it is better to count on him for one more season, even if it means seeing him go free in June 2023. was indicated by the German leaders his agent Pini Zahavi during a meeting held on Thursday. Will the Bavarian club keep this speech to the end? Not sure.
Behind the scenes, the Munich management is studying different profiles of attackers to replace Lewandowski, say our colleagues. The names of Darwin Nunez (Benfica), Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea), Patrik Schick (Leverkusen) or even Sbastien Haller (Ajax) are mentioned. Proof that Bayern could finally give in on this issue. The second meeting, to be held in the coming days, between the Munich residents and Zahavi should provide more information.
