According to Salihamidzic, however, there are no contacts with FC Barcelona, which according to the media should be Lewandowski’s target. He insists on the agreed employment relationship: “Lewa has a contract until the summer of next year. This is a fact.”
He would not have dealt with a sale, assured Salihamdizic. In reality, however, it is his duty to already take care of potential successors.
Sadio Mane replaced by Robert Lewandowski?
Liverpool FC’s Sadio Mané is said to be a candidate according to information from “Sky”. VfB Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic, Bayer Leverkusen’s Patrik Schick and Ajax Amsterdam’s Sébastien Haller have also been associated with record-breaking media champions.
Salihamidzic faces a tough decision: if he lets Lewandowski go and collect a stake this summer, he needs a first-class replacement. This should work immediately and without a long period of getting used to.
It is then necessary to replace a striker with 50 competitive goals in one season. If Lewandowski were to stay another year, Bayern would forgo a half-million double-digit amount and let the next star move for free after David Alaba and Niklas Süle. An economic debacle!

Lewandowski’s last game with Bayern?
At the end of the day he also got the top scorer cannon from the “football player” on the spot. Like at an awards ceremony, he raised it to cheers from fans. Afterwards he often greeted Bayern fans. Was it already a sign of goodbye?
“It is very likely that this was my last match for Bayern,” the 33-year-old told Polish television. “I can’t say 100 percent. But maybe it was. We will find the best solution for me and the club. One thing is certain: Lewandowski’s desire to leave is a setback for Bayern’s staff planning.
Nagelsmann regrets the loss, but does not grieve
“Yes, it is a defeat – said Julian Nagelsmann – but the Bayern manager does not expect to leave immediately. He has a contract until 2023. Everyone has commented. But there are no other statements about it, except that he has a contract until 2023 “.
Losing one of the best strikers in the world in the last five years in a year at the latest triggers Nagelsmann to regret – and arouses ambition: “It’s never nice when you lose a great player. Sad is the wrong word. There are other things. to be sad about. It’s more of an incentive to find a player to replace him after next season. That leaves little room for sadness. “
