Striker Robert Lewandowski said on Monday that his era at Bayern “is over”, despite the fact that he still has a year left on his contract, as the German club’s general manager, Oliver Kahn, later reminded him. The battering ram was very forceful when he was requested by a journalist from the newspaper Sport, edited in Barcelona, during his appearance upon arrival at the concentration of the Polish team. “I don’t see any chance of continuing at the club,” he added. “Bayern is a serious club; I hope they don’t keep me just because they can do it with the contract in hand.”
At 33 years old, Lewandowski aspires to sign for a European club and among the applicants is Barcelona. The problem is that the azulgrana team does not have the money to face any hiring if it does not sell any of its assets first, a possibility that will be discussed at the board of directors this Tuesday. Barcelona’s intention is to present an offer close to 30 million. Although Bayern is initially reluctant to transfer the striker, various media are already speculating on possible alternatives such as Mané’s, who practically said goodbye to Liverpool.
Lewandowski, who in 374 games for Bayern has scored 344 goals, will play four Nations League games with the Poland team. The first will be held on Wednesday in Warsaw and will face Wales.
