Bayern Munich: Millions of poker around Lewandowski: Does Kahn break his word? – Bundesliga

Will Bayern let Robert Lewandowski (33) go after all?

FC Barcelona has submitted an improved offer for the still-Bayern striker (contract until 2023). After the Catalans’ first foray of €32m (this offer didn’t include any bonus payments), a second offer of €35m was received in Munich on Thursday, according to BILD information.

Is Bayern Basta now crumbling from boss Oliver Kahn (53)?

With this offer, don’t expect Kahn to break his word just yet! Bayern is said to have not yet reacted to the offer from FC Barcelona, ​​which was increased by three million euros.

According to BILD information, the Munich team will not give up their superstar (344 goals in 374 competitive games) for less than 50 million euros! The “Change-Basta” (“He has a contract, he will fulfill it. Basta!”) pronounced by the CEO at the championship celebration in May continues to apply.

BUT: On the sporting level, the topic is seen somewhat differently. The prevailing opinion is that a Lewandowski departure can also have advantages: more flexibility, less predictable for opponents, more freedom for the other offensive stars (Coman, Müller, Sané, Gnabry) – and new superstar Sadio Mané (30 )! And no stinky Lewy in the cabin. Coach Julian Nagelsmann (34) is also concerned about this…

The players are more likely to assume a Lewy departure. Some are even already annoyed by the constant exchange hiccups. And also on the boss level, the basta words are getting softer.

Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidžić (45) just said: “July 12 is his first day at work, so I’m expecting him. But I’m not dealing with that now, because we had other things to do.”

Kahn would not look good at first because of his Basta statement. With an offer of 50 million, however, Bayern would have to think twice: is another season with the Pole really worth 75 million euros (missed transfer fee plus salary)?

A few days ago, Kahn had already kept a small back door open when he said when asked about Lewandowski’s future: “RIGHT NOW we’re not dealing with it at all.” So it’s possible that something will happen if the Catalans make a corresponding offer.

At a meeting between Lewandowski, his advisor Pini Zahavi (78), “Brazzo” and Kahn, the fronts remained hardened – even if the atmosphere of the conversation was said to have been good.

The fact is: If Barca continue to increase the Lewy offer by “only” a few million, it will be a very long poker.
