The first round of negotiations took place on Thursday between FC Bayern and Lewandowski adviser Pini Zahavi. According to current media reports, the Pole is dissatisfied with the outcome of the talks. The 33-year-old striker is rumored to be leaning towards an early departure in the summer.
Zahavi and Bayern managers (Hasan Salihamidzic, Oliver Kahn and Marco Neppe) talked about Robert Lewandowski and his sporting future for almost 2.5 hours. While the Monaco team confirmed their position that they are unwilling to sell the top scorer in the summer, their consultant pointed out that an extension is possible in principle, if the relevant conditions (contract length and salary).
The fronts are hardened
There was no concrete result. Another meeting will be held shortly. The future of the attacker therefore remains uncertain. As the “BILD” reports, the fronts are currently hardened and today’s talks have not changed it. As the tabloid wants to know, Lewandowski is not very happy with how the first meeting went. The 33-year-old is therefore aiming for a long-term solution and would like to have clarity on where he will play next season.
According to “BILD”, the FIFA world footballer currently tends to leave in the summer. The problem: Bayern are ruling out this scenario because they don’t have a suitable replacement up their sleeve. According to the information of “SPORT1”, the exit door is not completely closed. To do this, the FCB would have to not only sign a successor, but also generate a high transfer fee. According to reports, the financial pain threshold is 40 million euros.
