Bayern Munich’s top player Robert Lewandowski has reacted to the transfer situation between him and the club as he insisted that a move away from the club will be the best solution for both parties.
Lewandowski has just one year left in his contract but has refused to renew the contract. The 33-year-old has disclosed that he wants to leave the club this summer and face new challenges in other clubs with Barcelona being his possible next destination.
Lewandowski has spent 8 years at Bayern Munich after joining them from Borussia Dortmund but he believes that his time at the club is over. According to him, something has died in him and he can’t continue playing for the German champions.
He also revealed that he “doesn’t want to force” a move away from Bayern Munich but has insisted that the best thing for him is to leave this summer, adding that his “story with Bayern has come to an end.” The Poland captain made this known during an interview with Bild.
He said: “I still have a year left on my contract, that’s why I’ve asked the club for the go-ahead for a transfer.
“I think that in the current situation it’s the best solution, especially as the club can still receive money from a transfer. I don’t want to force anything, it’s not about that. It’s about finding the best solution. We need to cool down, I want to talk calmly and not through the media. I hope the fans will understand me one day.”
Lewandowski has always been regarded as one of Bayern Munich’s and the Bundesliga’s greatest players. He has scored an astonishing 238 league goals in just 253 games during his eight seasons with Bayern Munich, and his overall record of 344 goals in 375 appearances is similarly impressive.
He’d surely improve Barcelona’s attack, though it’s difficult to see how the debt-ridden Catalan giants could finance a move at this point. As things stand, Barça will be unable to sign upcoming free transfer duo Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen due to the club’s massive pay cost.
Frenkie de Jong is one of the players in talks to leave Camp Nou to make room for recruits, while Ousmane Dembele is also expected to leave.
On the other hand, Bayern Munich are also preparing to replace Robert Lewandowski with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane.
Bayern Munich have already submitted two offers which got rejected by Liverpool but the last offer was accepted and both teams have reached an agreement.
