Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has once again ruled out a premature change from forward Robert Lewandowski. “He has a contract until the summer of 2023. This is a fact,” said Salihamidzic on the final day of the Bundesliga. He does not face other scenarios: “Our position is clear”.
However, Salihamidzic confirmed that the world footballer would like to leave Bayern. “I spoke to Lewa. During the conversation he told me that he did not want to accept our offer to extend his contract and that he would like to leave the club.”
Lewandowski: “Find the best solution for both sides”
Lewandowski, on the other hand, believes it is still possible to say goodbye to FC Bayern this summer. “Of course, I still have one year on my contract. But I said we have to find the best solution for both teams. We will have to wait and see what happens,” said the 33-year-old, who has been Bundesliga top scorer this season with 35 goals this season. the seventh time on Sky.
He told sporting director Salihamidzic: “If an offer comes, then we have to think about it, even for the club. Both teams have to think about the future. That’s all I can say.”
Nagelsmann: Lewandowski’s departure would be a “loss”
Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann also referred to the striker’s current contract until 2023, but apparently expects an early departure, which he described as a “loss”. “There is little room for pain. You have to try to make the most of the situation,” said Nagelsmann after a 2-2 (2-1) win at VfL Wolfsburg.
“It’s not nice to lose a good player,” he said. But there are more important things in life to be truly sad about.
