The keys to the future of Lewandowski

The cards, on the table and face up. Bayern confirmed this Saturday, the day the Bundesliga ended, that his top figure, the Pole Robert Lewandowski, has told them that he does not want to renew his contract because he wants to embark on a new adventure. The striker, who is increasingly linked to Barcelona, ​​has decided to end his time in Munich, where he has been playing since 2014. However, as the striker has a contract with Bayern until 2023, he cannot leave there unless his team agrees to a transfer. The pulse is thrown. The footballer touched his shield to say goodbye to the Bavarian fans who had traveled to Wolfsburg and thanked his teammates and the coach for the season.

The striker is on his way to 34 years old and Bayern know that it is time to take out a good amount for a player who does not want to continue there. “I spoke with Lewa. During 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,” Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told Sky Sport Germany. “He added that he would like to try something new, but our position has not changed, Lewa has a contract until June 30, 2023. That is a fact”, added the technical secretary of the Bavarian team. The team's coach, Julian Nagelsmann, has already said that he would not veto a possible sale of the striker.

Bayern's position is textbook. He has a player with a contract but if he gets a good offer he will negotiate and study it. The alternative is to give Lewandowski away in 12 months, an extreme they won't want to go to if they can help it. The German champion intends to obtain around 40 million for a striker who has given him an excellent performance and for whom they did not pay a transfer at the time, since he arrived free from Borussia Dortmund. 344 goals later with the jersey of the Munich team Lewandowski presents them with a crossroads in which both parties intend and can come out on top. Because Barça, once unable to compete for the signing of Håland or aspire to hire Mbappé, has turned its sights towards a Lewandowski, with less experience due to age but much cheaper. “We want to find a solution for both parties. It was probably my last game with Bayern but I can't be 100% sure," the striker told Polish television Viaplay.

Asked about Lewandowski Xavi Hernández, without referring directly to the Pole, he did argue that he has no problem when dealing with the signing of veteran footballers. "It's not a question of age. I have signed Dani Alves at 38 years old. It's not age, it's performance. The footballers take care of themselves so much and every year they are more professional. Every footballer is a world. Ibrahimovic, Modric, Dani Alves... they all have a very high performance in important clubs. The important thing is that it improves us”, the Blaugrana coach extended.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski continued to do his thing until the last day of the season for Bayern. The Pole scored a goal in his team's draw at Wolfsburg. He closes the course with 50 points in his saddlebags. He now he wants to solve his future. Will he be at the Camp Nou?
