While FC Barcelona still dreams of recruiting Robert Lewandowski during the summer transfer window, the Bayern Munich striker confirmed on Saturday that he had requested a departure from his management.
Under contract until June 2023, the Polish striker confirmed to German media that he may have played his last match with the Bavarian club this Saturday at Wolfsburg (2-2) as part of the 34th Bundesliga day. Author of his 35th league goal this season at the Volkswagen Arena, Lewandowski clearly has desires elsewhere for the final stretch of his career. The latter wishes to offer himself a new challenge after eight seasons in Bavaria.
“It is very possible that this will be my last game with Bayern. I can’t say 100%, but it might be my last game. We want to find the best solution for me and for the club,” underlined Lewandowski in remarks relayed by Viaplay Sport Polska before giving a layer to the microphone of Sky Sport Germany. “JI can confirm that I have spoken with Hasan (Salihamidžić) and informed him that my decision has been made and that I will not extend my contract with FC Bayern. Both parties need to think about the future. We have to find the best solution for both parties”.
Now that the Polish striker has come out of silence, the management of FC Barcelona could take action in a much more concrete way. Despite everything, the Spanish press ensures that the Blaugrana club does not have the means to pay both a transfer and the future salary of the Bayern Munich striker. Paris Saint-Germain could take a position on this issue if Kylian Mbappé leaves for Real Madrid. According to RMC Sportsthe Parisian club is now a credible candidate to welcome Lewandowski this summer…
Gluckwunsch, @lewy_official! 👏👏
