Bayern confirm that Lewandowski has asked to leave and will not renew

Radical turn in the situation of Robert Lewandowski with the Bayern Munich. The Pole has already notified the Bavarian club that he will not accept their renewal offer and that he intends to leave the team this summer despite the fact that he still has one year left on his contract. This has been confirmed hassan Salihamidzicsports director of the Munich team, acknowledging that it has been the player himself who has told him his position, as well as that he still has a valid contract: it will not be free.

“Talk to Lewa. During the conversation he informed me that he did not want to accept our offer to extend the contract and that he would like to leave the club », are the surprising statements of SalihamidzicWhich collects Sky Sportsin which he assures that the striker wants to face new challenges away from Munich but that he will not leave for free, he still has one year left on his contract: «He said he would like to try something new, but our position has not changed, Lewa He has a contract until June 30, 2023. That is a fact.

This paves the way much more Barcelonaone of the most interested in Lewandowski. The culé club has not hidden its interest in the striker. He was Joan laporta the one who dropped that there were real options for him a few days ago, once the signing of Erling Haland for him Manchester City, the first goal culé. His option was one of the many that they had pointed out from the technical secretariat once the remote options for the Norwegian were ruled out. Awakened from the dream, the number one target becomes the player of the bayernwhich seems to be taking the necessary steps for this to happen.

Although Lewandowski has communicated that he rejects the renewal offer and that he wants to leave this summer bayern. This one still has one more year of contract in Munich, until 2023. This gives some power to the Bavarian team, with which they will have to sit down to negotiate the Barca to reach an agreement. It is a complex and difficult case. At 33 years old, 34 in August, he has the best goalscoring numbers in the world and he won’t come cheap.

Days ago it was leaked that the bayern He was already open to listening to offers for his striker, already aware of this situation that is now publicly confirmed by his sports director, Salihamidzic. The price they have put on the player is around 35 or 40 million euros, to which should be added a good salary according to the most forceful scorer in Europe this season.

This completely changes the situation of the Polish attacker. A few weeks ago, when he was dropped by Villarreal in the Champions League, from bayern They strongly affirmed that he would continue in the club and that they are working to renew the striker. They took for sure his continuity for at least one more year, the one he had on contract. The interest of Barcathe attempt of the Bavarians by Halandand the possibility of new challenges for the Pole, have led to a 180-degree turn in his situation.

It remains to be seen now if the Barca will be able to meet the economic requirements of the bayern for Lewandowski, in addition to the fact that it will not be the only club that tries to persuade him now that his intention to leave is already public. There will be more than a few first-level clubs that will try to get hold of his services, surely with a better economic position than the Catalans, so once again he will have to wait for the skills of persuasion and conviction of Xavi with the blaugrana project work with Lewa. In his favour, the possibility of reuniting with an old friend, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
