Bayern Munich confirmed their desire to leave star Robert Lewandowski on the lawns of Wolfsburg this Saturday on the sidelines of the last match of the Bundesliga season.
Towards a showdown between Bayern and Lewandowski? If we haven’t yet, it’s now official: the mighty German club and its strikers are no longer on the same wavelength. At 33, the Polish centre-forward has wishes elsewhere despite a contract that expires a year in June 2023.
Several weeks of rumors were confirmed by the Bavarian sports director on the lawns of Wolfsburg on Saturday ahead of the Bundesliga’s 38th and final day of matches. “I spoke with ‘Leva’, Hassan Salihamidzic told Sky’s microphone. During our conversation, he told me he did not want to accept our contract extension offer and would like to leave the club.”

“‘Leva’ contract is till June 30, 2023”
Refusing to extend, Lewandowski put Bayern in an uncomfortable position. Because in the absence of an agreement for an extension, the former Borussia Dortmund player would leave Bayern free, and therefore free in one year.
While Lewandowski reportedly dreams of joining Barca this summer, and the Catalan is reportedly working to sign him, Bayern management is determined for now. “Our position has not changed, recalls Salihamidzhik. “Leva” has a contract until June 30, 2023. This is a fact.” The Bosnian indicated that no talks had begun with any other club. Having arrived at Bayern in 2014 from Borussia Dortmund, Robert Lewandowski was crowned top scorer four times with the Bavarian team.
