Lewandowski (33 years old) sent a signal to the world of football after his match against Eintracht. And also to Madrid. Asked about the possibility that he will continue at Bayern next season or if he will leave the entity, he was forceful. “I am open to everything. I’m quiet. It is important for me to be able to focus on my game, always on what can happen in the last game. Everything that remains to be done regarding the contracts is a secondary issue and remains in the background, ” sentenced the Pole in the German Sky Sport.
Lewandowski has a contract until 2023. With the news about a future away from Bayern for several months, the interviewer sought the striker’s reaction to some statements by the sports director Salidhamizic, in which he assured that the intention of the German club is to keep him in the team “at all costs”. And the forward stunned locals and strangers. “Oh yes, first news!” Everything, despite the fact that the president of the entity, Herbert Hainer (67 years old), has reiterated that idea several times in recent times.
As AS has learned from sources close to the striker, relations between the player’s representative, Pini Zahavi, and Bayern cooled to such an extent after Alaba’s departure that, to date, they have not even resumed. “It’s a greedy piranha,” Hoeness went on to say, honorary president of Bayern, of Zahavi, which will not help, surely, to have a good predisposition when negotiating a hypothetical renewal.
As this newspaper has been telling, Lewandowski’s first intention is not to renew with Bayern and seek new challenges. He wants to rush his options to sign for Madrid and he has told his agent so. In reality, Lewandowski already threatened to leave Bayern last summer, but he met with direct opposition from the club.
The Munich entity starts in a position of clear inferiority in any negotiations that it wants to start with Lewandowski to extend his contract. Because he’s not the only heavyweight to finish in 2023. Goalie Neuer (35) and Muller (32) are in the same boat. “I would love for all three to finish their careers at FC Bayern. And I also firmly assume that this will be the case”, said Herbert Hainer recently. The Bayern board is already in a very difficult moment, there are already several players who have left the entity for free because of the end of their contract: Süle, Alaba, Boateng, Martínez, and Tolisso will soon.
The possibility of Real Madrid.
Only a carom could make Lewandowski end up in Madrid, but, of course, and as AS has published, his predisposition is total. The first objective of Madrid is to close Mbappé as soon as possible. On the other hand, he tries to take positions to sign Haaland. In the times that the entity manages, the ideal would be to face that operation in 2023, but if Haaland decides to leave now, I would have to bid on it. If I lost in this bid for the Norwegian against City or PSG’s oil money, Lewandowski appears as an exceptional option, since Bayern would have to sell him for a figure well below his market value (about 50 million) for a player proclaimed The Best in the last two seasons.
