Robert Lewandowski wants to leave FC Bayern. Munich’s Bayerns director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed this before the last game of the season against VfL Wolfsburg. FC Barcelona is the desired goal, it is obviously becoming more and more concrete between the attacker and the Catalans – or not?
What has been speculated for a long time is now official: Robert Lewandowski wants to get away from FC Bayern.
“I spoke to Lewa. In the conversation, he informed me that he did not want to accept our offer to extend the contract and that he would like to leave the club,” said Salihamidzic to “Sky” on Saturday afternoon. Accordingly, Lewandowski would like to “do something else”.
At the same time, Salihamidzic made it clear that FC Bayern did not want to let the striker go. “He has a contract until summer 2023. That is a fact,” says “Brazzo”: “Our attitude is clear.”
confusion about alleged agreement with Barca
The world footballer has been associated with FC Barcelona for weeks. According to “Bayern1”, there is already an oral agreement between Lewandowski’s consultant Pini Zahavi and Barca. There is therefore a three -year contract in the room.
“Spox” and “goal” contradict this. So Zahavi is in talks with the Barca managers, but it has not yet come to an agreement.
According to “Bayern1”, Barcelona’s club president Joan Laporta has assured the Lewandowski page that the association would make an official offer for the 33-year-old if FC Bayern actually signaled.
Lewandowski too old? Xavi reacts
FC Barcelona is said to be ready to take 30 to 40 million euros on Lewandowski. However, the exact sum should ultimately depend on several factors such as other revenues from player sales and sponsorship deals.
The fact that Lewandowski is already in the upper football age does not bother Barca coach Xavi. “The age does not concern me when the contract is concluded. We signed Dani Alves when he was 38,” said the 42-year-old.
Players would live more professional these days. In addition to Alves, Xavi also cited Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi as examples.
