Nagelsmann sends a request to Lewandowski

Bubbling happily, the mill of rumors about Robert Lewandowski’s future. Julian Nagelsmann therefore wants to plan safety from the world footballer soon. While Thomas Müller is out against Mainz, the Bayern manager is already planning his squad for the new season.

In view of speculation about the future of world footballer Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann would like to plan safety. “It’s always nice to plan for safety in all areas of life, even with a forward,” said the 34-year-old ahead of the Bundesliga away game against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday.15: 30 / Sky and in the live ticker on

Nagelsmann hopes that Lewandowski will stay and “there we will reach an agreement”. He reaffirmed his confidence in CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic when it came to transfer issues. He “soon announced his opinion of him on the team,” Nagelsmann said. He will have the necessary patience “even during the day”.

Salihamidzic had recently categorically ruled out leaving Lewandowski this summer after eight years. “Now we have time to talk about the next steps,” he said, referring to the end of the contract and a possible early extension of the contract with the 33-year-old Pole.

The first meeting was supposed to take place

According to Salihamidzic, the world-class striker is “the club’s best earner”. The club is reluctant to extend the contract, which will run until 2023, given the striker’s age and high salary costs. According to media reports on Thursday, there should have been a first meeting between Lewandowski adviser Pini Zahavi and FC Bayern management.

Meanwhile, the record-breaking German champions have to do without international Thomas Müller in the away match against Mainz. The football forward was ill, Nagelsmann reported. It is not a corona infection, but it is contagious nonetheless.

After the tenth consecutive Bundesliga championship, Nagelsmann only wants to selectively rebuild his eleven starters. Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting should start on the attack, Marcel Sabitzer should start in midfield. Defender Dayot Upamecano may have a weekend off to devote to his young family, Nagelsmann said. The Bayern manager may want to “replace a little earlier” one or the other player.
