Robert Lewandowski’s Future Won’t Be In Germany

What Was Said

Speaking publically, Robert Lewandowski said: “My story with Bayern has come to an end, I cannot imagine further good cooperation.

“I hope they will not stop me (from leaving) just because they can. A transfer is the best solution for everyone.”

Interest From Barcelona

It has been widely reported that Barcelona are keen on signing the striker and he would be open to a move to the Nou Camp.

Fabrizio Romano previously reported that talks had begun between the two clubs but Bayern weren’t willing to sell until they had found a replacement.

However, following the news that Liverpool striker Sadio Mane would be looking to leave the Reds this summer, Bayern could once again express their interest in signing the Senegalese striker.

Robert Lewandowski’s Future Shouldn’t Detract From His Bayern Munich Career

Despite having one year remaining on his contract, Robert Lewandowski’s future at Bayern Munich looks set to end this summer.

This comes despite calls from Chief executive Oliver Kahn saying that the striker had an obligation to fulfil his deal which expires in 2023.

Lewandowski joined the Bavarians from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund in 2014. During this time, the forward has won eight consecutive Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals, the DFL-Supercup on five occasions, one Champions League, one UEFA Super Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup.

The striker has also netted 344 goals in 375 Bayern appearances, including 98 in the last two seasons.

It would be a sour end to an illustrious career in Germany but the Polish forward is looking for a fresh challenge in football.
