On Saturday Robert Lewandowski will receive the Saturday scorer cannon for the seventh time. And more and more suggests that it will be his last. Not because he will stop scoring goals, but because he may not play in the Bundesliga in the new season.
As “BILD” reports on Thursday, Lewandowski announced to the FC Bayern responsible last week not to extend his contract in 2023. Maybe this summer is already separating.
For the Bayern makers, a premature sale according to Saturday information is not excluded, but depends on two conditions: Do you find a successor? And do you get a satisfactory transfer fee? There are around 40 million euros in the room.
When Thomas Müller extended in the previous week of 2024 – which lasted Captain Manuel Neuer – this was also to be understood as a signal to Lewandowski: a longer -term contract should not expect. Now there will probably be no agreement.
fresh money waves: makes Barcelona seriously at Lewandowski?
The Bundesliga to Erling Haaland (from BVB to Manchester City) threatens to lose its two most prominent strikers within a transfer phase. Lewandowski is currently the second best striker in league history. He scored 311 times in 383 games.
Again and again the 33-year-old Pole has been associated with FC Barcelona in recent months. The Spanish top club continues to struggle with finances, but also prospects for fresh income: Philippe Coutinho, who wants to commit Aston Villa, could bring in 20 million euros; Frenkie de Jong, whom apparently Manchester United’s new coach Erik Ten Hag absolutely wants to have been relieved, over 70 million euros.
