Robert Lewandowski will not be leaving Bayern Munich this summer. The Bavarians are not ready to part ways with their star man. Not this summer, and potentially not even next summer, should he opt for an extension.
The veteran striker has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga champions this summer. Recent reports suggested that he has expressed his desire to leave and that Bayern had set a £110,000,000 price tag for him.
However, it has come to light that Bayern are actually not considering a sale whatsoever. Lewandowski accepts this position and will not push for a transfer.
The current scenario of Robert Lewandowski
Robert Lewandowski turns 33 this weekend. A number of clubs were lining up to secure his signature after yet another magnificent goal-filled season in the Bundesliga. Bayern claimed their ninth consecutive league title.
Chelsea were among interested suitors, before securing the services of former forard Romelu Lukaku instead. Reports on Thursday claimed that the Pole was leaning towards an exit before the end of the summer.
Nonetheless, Bayern are resolute and will not sell him before the end of August for any price. Lewandowski has accepted this and will continue in a Bayern shirt as normal, starting with their clash against Koln.
The 32-year-old still has two years left on his contract at the Allianz. When asked by Bild, “How happy is the World Footballer still in Munich?”. The answer, of course, is “very happy.” Lewandowski is “thinking a lot about the quality of the squad” after parting with Alaba and Boateng.
Germany’s ‘Footballer of the Year’ 2021 has scored a massive 297 goals and registered 65 assists in 331 appearances for Bayern since his move from Borussia Dortmund in July 2014.
The Bundesliga giants will be gunning Erling Haaland next summer. This would be when a release clause in the forward’s contract will activate.
