On the occasion of the 31st day of the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich, solid leader of the German championship, hosts Borussia Dortmund in a meeting which could already crown the Munich team for the tenth season in a row. A shock in which will obviously participate Robert Lewandowski (33 years old), undisputed offensive leader of the formation trained by Julian Nagelsmann. But perhaps the last … At the dawn of his last year of contract with Bayern, the Polish international (129 caps, 75 goals) has, in fact, still not extended on the side of Munich. A trend that also seems to be confirmed in recent hours, as the relationship between the two parties is gradually dissecting. Annoyed by the lack of interest in him, “Lewy” – who spoke with Oliver Kahn (chairman of the board of directors) and Hasan Salihamidzic two weeks ago – regrets that the question of his future does not is not at the center of the concerns of the Bavarian leaders.
An astonishing treatment when you know the strike force that the Pole represents on the front of the attack of Bayern Munich. Author of 47 goals and 6 assists in 42 matches in all competitions since the start of the season, Lewandowski is still in the sights of FC Barcelona but still wishes to wait for the final position of the Munich decision-makers in his regard. For the time being and if a meeting with Kahn and Salihamidzic as well as his agent Pini Zahavi is scheduled for next week, the German club seems to be heading towards a proposal for an additional season with the same salary (24 million euros gross annual ). A proposal which clearly does not satisfy the main interested party, eager to sign a new contract for two more seasons and, above all, to see his emoluments increase.
Robert Lewandowski is no longer comfortable at Bayern!
In today’s edition, The Team also reveals that the Polish striker would feel less and less comfortable with the system of play proposed by his coach Julian Nagelsmann. In a tactical scheme considerably forward, Lewandowski, “lost” in the middle of five other attackers, is thus forced to drop on the wing to touch more balls and thus participate in the game of Bayern. A malaise which therefore adds to the contractual disagreement currently facing the two parties. Worried about this situation, Bayern – which has set the selling price for Lewy at around 60 million euros – is already looking for a possible replacement.
Among them, we then find Christopher Nkunku, well known to Nagelsmann during his time at RB Leipzig (2019-2021) but also Patrik Schick, author of 20 achievements this season in the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen, or even Romelu Lukaku, in difficulty on the side of Chelsea. If the rag therefore seems to be burning between the Bavarians and the Pole, Barça could quickly take advantage of these fresh relations. As reported AS this Saturday, the president of Barça, Joan Laporta, says he is more and more confident about the idea of Lewandowski’s arrival in Catalonia. Questioned by a fan after the meeting between the Blaugranas and Sociedad, the boss of the Culés thus affirmed that there was now “more chances” to see Lewandowski land during the next summer transfer window.
