‘My Story With Bayern Munich Has Come To An End’ – Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski announced his departure from Bayern Munich on Monday, without elaborating on his future plans, despite speculations that he has received an offer from Barcelona.

“Today it is certain that my story with Bayern Munich has come to an end,” the Polish star striker Robert Lewandowski told reporters in Warsaw.

“I can’t imagine further cooperation, after what has happened over the last few months,” he added.

“A transfer will be the best solution. I trust that Bayern won’t stop me, just because they can.”

Barcelona has reportedly submitted an offer of 32 million euros ($34.5 million) to sign Lewandowski, who has one year left on his contract.

Lewandowski teased that he might like living in Spain in an interview with Polish channel Eleven Sports PL.

“I think it’s a really fantastic place — not just for vacations,” he remarked, noting that he has a home on the island of Mallorca.

Bayern Munich’s CEO Oliver Khan and director of sports Hasan Salihamidzic have both declared publicly that Lewandowski will not be allowed to leave the club until 2023.

Pini Zahavi, Lewandowski’s agent, urged Bayern earlier this month against insisting on the contract.

“Of course they can keep Robert for another year, to be fair he has a contract until 2023, but I wouldn’t recommend that to them,” Zahavi told German daily Bild.

He went on to say that the issue for Lewandowski isn’t money.

“The truth is that he has felt mistreated by people in control (at Bayern) for months.”

“FC Bayern has lost Robert the guy, not Lewandowski the player.”

Zahavi expressed his desire that Bayern’s top brass “consider it again” and give Lewandowski the chance to “fulfill a lifelong goal and move to the club (Barcelona) he has always wished for.”

Lewandowski, a two-time winner of FIFA’s best male player award, has won every trophy possible since joining Bayern in 2014, including eight Bundesliga titles for a total of ten, two of which he won with ex-club Dortmund.

In addition, he and Bayern Munich won the Champions League in 2020.

Lewandowski was the Bundesliga’s top scorer for the sixth year in a row last season, scoring 35 goals in Germany’s top flight.

Bayern Munich also confirmed the departure of France midfielder Corentin Tolisso, whose contract with the club had expired after five years.
