There are growing signs that Robert Lewandowski could leave Bayern at the end of the season. According to current media, the top scorer complains of ‘a lack of appreciation from the management of the club.’ An extension with the German record champions is still a long way off.
The rumor around Robert Lewandowski is currently simmering. The sporting future of the Pole is the determining subject in Munich and is becoming more and more important after the disappointing end of the CL. Even though club boss Oliver Kahn ruled out selling the striker this week this week, it seems to be forcing a goodbye to the Isar.
Lewandowski disappointed with Bayern club management
As “RMC Sport” reports from France, the 33-year-old is now not hiding the fact that he wants to leave FC Bayern this summer. Reason: Lewandowski complains about a lack of appreciation in Munich. As a result, the Polish striker is disappointed with the club’s management on Säbener Straße. This is mainly due to the Munich team’s hesitant behavior in terms of contract extensions. The club and the player haven’t had any concrete talks yet, which should annoy the striker noticeably.
According to ‘RMC Sport’, Lewandowski hasn’t expressed his intention to leave FCB internally yet and is still waiting for a sign or a concrete offer from Bayern. According to information from ‘Sport BILD’, the record champions tend to only offer the top scorer a new contract until 2024. However, it’s unclear what the people of Munich are financially willing to pay. The player’s site is rumored to be asking for a new €30m annual salary. The striker currently earns €23-25m per season.
Barcelona are waiting
After Niklas Süle, Bayern’s next star could leave the club this summer. The DFB international and his agent have repeatedly complained about the lack of appreciation at Munich in the past. Süle is moving to league rivals Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer.
With Lewandowski, FC Barcelona could be the laughing third. The Catalans are intensely vying for the FIFA World Player title and would like to give it a try this summer if there is no extension at FCB. His agent Pini Zahavi has been in contact with Barcelona for some time and is already setting up the financial framework for a move.
But it is also clear: without a transfer exit from Bayern, there will be no transfer. There are reports that Bayern bosses are quite willing to risk losing Lewandowski on a free transfer in the summer of 2023.
