On the lawn of the Volkswagen Arena, Robert Lewandowski will play, this Saturday at 3:30 p.m., his 374th match in Bavarian colors during Wolfsburg – Bayern Munich. His last ? The question can legitimately be asked. Under contract until June 2023 and at dawn, therefore, of his last year of contract with Bayern, the Polish international (129 caps, 75 goals) has still not extended on the Munich side. Annoyed by the lack of interest in him, “Lewy” – who spoke with Oliver Kahn (chairman of the board of directors) and Hasan Salihamidzic two weeks ago – particularly regretted that the question of his future did not is not at the center of the concerns of the Bavarian leaders. And now, there is no going back.
According to “Sport Picture”, a newspaper very well informed regarding information on Bayern, the Bavarian management has thus offered a new lease to the Pole by offering to keep his salary (15 million fixed plus 5 in variables) and an additional year of contract. But the offer made by the Bavarians to keep him in the team clearly did not convince Lewandowski who therefore decided to decline the offer. In addition, the German media specifies that the former Dortmund also told Bayern of his desire to leave this summer, also indicating his desire to join FC Barcelona, determined to offer RL9. Determined to leave the Munich training during the next summer transfer window, Lewandowski therefore pushes Bayern to its limits and faces an important dilemma. The deal is simple: Lewy will leave this summer or freely next summer…
Robert Lewandowski no longer wants to hear about Bayern Munich!
Enough to make his management think, who now seems ready to enter into talks from the next summer transfer window to try to recover a few million in the operation, which is more for a player with 49 goals and 7 assists in 45 matches in all competitions. since the start of the season. As indicated by SPORT if the message was so far very clear at the level of the upper Bavarian spheres, determined to keep Lewandowski, the departure of the Pole is now considered. It is enough to listen to the Bavarian leaders to realize that everything has changed.
On the one hand, the coach, Julian Nagelsmann, now chooses not to retain his star striker: “I am not the right person to impose vetoes. We spoke to Oliver Khan (Chairman of the Sports Council) and Brazzo (Hasan Salihamidzic, Sports Director) to decide some things, but I will never speak publicly for or against anything as if speech is the law.said the German coach on Friday before adding: “I never talk about things that I treat confidentially with the players, anything you have to ask him”. In a strong position despite limited finances, Barça can now rely on the good relationship between Joan Laporta and Pini Zahavi, Lewandowski’s agent, who is determined to join the Culés. In Catalonia, there is hope and everyone is convinced that Bayern will opt for a position in which pride will take a back seat and pragmatism will win the battle.
