Robert Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern Munich in the summer but still has a contract in Munich. What speaks for and against a transfer? An overview.

Munich – The signs point to separation. Robert Lewandowski want that FC Bayern left after eight years – according to tz information, the Pole rejected a contract extension last week. What now?

Lewandowski is tied to the German record champions until 2023, but wants to leave this summer. Sell ​​or not? Bayern are facing a landmark decision in their future planning.

Robert Lewandowski
Born: August 21, 1988 (Age: 33 years old), Warsaw, Poland
Position: center forward
Contract with FC Bayern Munich until: 06/30/2023
Market value: 50 million euros

FC Bayern could achieve a lucrative fee for Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski is for the FC Bayern Munich actually indispensable. Nevertheless, there are some arguments to release the Pole from his contract early. Because only this summer would a decent transfer fee be earned with a transfer. The pain threshold of the Munich bosses is said to be around 40 million euros, FC Barcelona would probably be willing to put the money on the table.

Barca are apparently offering a three-year deal. If there were a change after the contract expired in the summer of 2023, Lewandowski would be free and Bayern would once again go away empty-handed. The same scenario as Niklas Süle, who moves to Borussia Dortmund, or David Alaba, who went to Real Madrid a year ago, should actually be avoided in the future.

Robert Lewandowski: Transfer poker at FC Bayern could cause unrest

The Bayern bosses around Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn or coach Julian Nagelsmann keep pointing out that Lewandowski still has a contract. “He has a contract until June 30, 2023,” said the Bayern sports director and added: “Now we have time to talk about what will happen after June 30, 2023.” However, Lewandowski is said to be pushing for a change release internally, adviser Pini Zahavi should push through the wish.

A transfer poker all summer or worse, during the season, would be with a lot of turmoil around Säbener Street tied together. Those responsible must ask themselves whether they can tame a dissatisfied Lewandowski. A few years ago, the Pole wanted to leave Bayern and is said to have caused a bad atmosphere in the team. In addition, Lewandowski, who celebrates his 34th birthday in August, is not getting any younger.

FC Bayern: Lewandowski is indispensable as a goalscorer

Of course, his incredible goal rate speaks against the premature sale of Lewandowski. The striker scored an incredible 343 goals in 373 competitive games for FC Bayern (as of May 13, 2022). After his record year in the Bundesliga with 41 goals in the previous season, Lewy currently has 34 goals going into the last matchday. No club in the world can replace a player who is good for almost 50 goals a season.

Finding a successor for Lewandowski should be anything but easy. Many candidates are simply too expensive for Bayern. Erling Haaland is moving to Manchester City. With Borussia Dortmund, a competitor is already looking for a new striker, which doesn’t make things any easier. Both clubs are apparently digging Ajax striker Sebastien Haller.

Robert Lewandowski: FC Bayern has no successor in sight

Bayern’s plan was anyway to extend Lewandowski’s contract and develop a young striker in his shadow. Joshua Zirkzee returns from his loan in Belgium in the summer and would be a potential Lewy successor in the medium term. And who knows, maybe Lewandowski will stay in Munich, even if it doesn’t look like it at the moment, and score goals for FC Bayern for many years to come. (ck)
