FC Bayern Munich has repeatedly emphasized in recent weeks that they want to keep the Polish national player in the squad beyond the summer of 2023. Agreements between the club and Lewandowski’s agent have not yet been reported. According to information from the broadcaster “sports1“The club is said to have not submitted a concrete offer so far.

According to other media reports, Bayern have so far ruled out a premature departure of the record scorer. Plettenberg, on the other hand, writes on Twitter that the athlete – according to rumors – wants to leave after the current season.

Lewandowski can only leave the club on a free transfer in 2023. This is how he came to the Isar from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.

The message was met with mixed feelings on social media. “What a leadership in Bayern. Lewandowski can easily play at a high level for 5 years. How do you want to replace him?” a Twitter user does not seem to be able to understand the decision.

“Thanks for everything. And bye.” or “Then sell it and bye,” other commentators seem less affected by the message. (Spelling adopted.)

It now remains to be seen how long Robert Lewandowski will – or wants to – appear under the Bayern banner.
