The future of the scorer is still unclear and sparks speculation. How hard is FC Bayern trying to keep the superstar? Sports director Salihamidzic has a prominent advertising supporter.
It is not yet certain where Robert Lewandowski will play in the future. The striker’s contract with FC Bayern is in effect until 2023, there is talk of an early extension, a departure this summer is in the air – only then could the record-breaking champions of Germany be able to collect compensation for the 33-year-old.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is also in evidence. The question that is often raised: Are Monaco trying hard enough for Lewandowski, who has already scored 342 official goals for the club since he moved in 2014?
Salihamidzic himself said the day after winning the tenth consecutive championship on “Sky 90”: “He has a contract until 2023. Now we will hold talks and see how they develop”. Lewandowski himself, on the other hand, kept a low profile.
“He answered perfectly from a manager’s point of view”
Salihamidzic has now received special praise for his poker behavior for the top scorer: “He is part of this poker now and he was right from Hasan,” writes national record player Lothar Matthäus in his column on Sky.
And again: “Obviously he will have to be judged by his words. If Lewandowski leaves the club for any reason, at least he raised the price. From a manager’s point of view, Hasan reacted perfectly.”
Among other things, FC Barcelona is said to have increased interest in Lewandowski and the Polish media had already reported on a transfer to the Catalans weeks ago. The back and forth to where the world-class striker is located will likely continue for a while longer.
