Lewandowski finally speaks about his future ahead of the summer transfer
Bayern Munich has acknowledged that Lewandowski wants to leave this summer.
Bayern Munich’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, revealed on Saturday that Robert Lewandowski will depart the club in the summer.
Lewandowski is Barcelona’s top priority after a potential transfer for Erling Haaland was ruled out. Barcelona has made an offer to the Polish striker, and it remains to be seen whether the two teams can come to an agreement, given that the player’s contract only has one year left.
“I spoke to Lewa,” Salihamidzic told Sky Germany.
“During our conversation, he stated that he would not accept our contract extension offer and that he intended to leave the club.”
“He expressed a desire in trying something new, but we haven’t changed our minds; Lewa is under contract until June 30, 2023.” That has been established.”
Bayern Munich is unlikely to sell him for less than 40 million euros, and he is demanding a premium salary.
Barcelona intends to add a striker and a winger to their roster in the summer. The Blaugrana, on the other hand, now lack the financial wherewithal to do so.
Barcelona’s main target is Robert Lewandowski, though it’s uncertain whether his refusal to renew his contract with Bayern Munich would result in a move to the Camp Nou, since Bayern Munich may want to cash in on him now rather than allowing him leave for free next summer.
