Bayern Munich’s Polish attacker Robert Lewandowski, chosen as the best FIFA player in 2020 and 2021, confirmed on Saturday that he wants to leave Bayern as of this transfer market.

“I can confirm that I have informed Hasan Salihamidzic (Bayern’s sporting director), I have made my decision and will not renew my contract with Bayern Munich“, declared the scorer after the last game of the season in the Bundesliga.

At the Bavarian club since 2014, Lewandowski is 33 and his current contract expires at the end of June 2023, meaning Bayern should let him leave for free if he stays for another season.

“I have told Hasan that if an offer arrives, it will have to be studied, also in the interest of the team. Both parties have to think about the future. I can’t say more. We want to find the best solution for the club and for myself,” she assured.
