Bayern Munich forward who wears the no. 9 jersey has spoken several times of leaving the Bavaria team this summer. However his contract with Bayern Munich expires next year June 30.
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihadmic has done all he can to convince Lewandowski to stay in the club, but all his efforts seem to be wasted.
Lewandowski joined Bayern Munich in 2014 from Dortmund and ever since then he has scored 344 goals in 374 appearances with 275 of those goals in Bundesliga and 69 in the UEFA Champions League.
Lewandowski has been linked with Barcelona and premier league side Chelsea. Lewandowski turned the offer of Chelsea down but Bayern Munich have set their sights on Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea accused Lukaku of being a liability in the team.
Lewandowski accused the Bundesliga and Bayern Munich of not being challenging and too easy. He said and I quote “My new home is Barcelona. I want to go where I will find new challenges coming from new people, I want to make new friends and most especially win new cups”.
Bayern Munich are still insisting that he finishes his contract with them, he will still remain their striker and property until June 30, 2023. Barcelona have offered €40m but Bayern Munich are requesting for €50m. Joan Laporta has promised to do all he can to bring Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich this summer.
