They do not want to repeat what was experienced with David Alaba. Bayern Munich decided to open the door for the departure of Robert Lewandowski. According to ‘Bild’, the German team decided to put a price on the Polish striker, who already ends his contract next season. According to Spanish media, the team most likely to add him to their ranks is FC Barcelona.
From different spheres of Bayern they had shown their refusal to let Lewandowski leave and were convinced that they could reach a renewal agreement. However, after the first contacts with the player’s agent, the situation has become tense.
The Pole’s contract ends in 2023 and he is not too open to renewing. Bayern risks losing its top scorer for no compensation within a season. Another Alaba case, so now he has softened his initial stance.
Always according to ‘Bild’, in this scenario, the German champion would be willing to let ‘The Best’ go, or at least negotiate if offers that exceed 35 million arrive, a figure that Barcelona would be willing to pay.
On the other hand, at Bayern they do not now look badly on saving the salary that ‘Lewy’ receives, who earns around 24 million euros per course.
Thus, now it is in the hands of Laporta to launch his offensive, but with an amount already within reach of his possibilities. But above all, with the certainty that Lewandowski himself wants to leave. In fact, he would have already communicated in the locker room his intention to pack.
Despite his almost 34 years, the option of ‘Lewa’ convinces Xavi and the coaching staff, since they consider him one of the best strikers in the world, a top scorer and they believe that he still has three years left at the highest level.
