For years, Robert Lewandowski has been the strength of Bayern Munich. Apparently, this is not enough for the club’s authorities to offer the Pole a new, long-term contract.
The difficult situation of Lewandowski. “Bayern would fall on his head”
The situation of “Lewy” is uncertain because The Pole has clear requirements – long-term contract and unreduced salary. The Bavarian club has a policy of extending contracts for players after the age of 30 for one season, and the Pole would like a contract for a longer period. As it turns out, this is not the only obstacle in signing a new contract, because Bayern is waiting for the development of the situation with the young BVB sniper.
“Much depends on Bayern Munich being able to play a role in the Erling Braut Haaland transfer race.” – Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg informed.
According to him, the agent of Robert Lewandowski, Pini Zahavi, does not conduct any talks with the club’s authorities and is not sure what the president Oliver Kahn and the rest of the board are going to do.
Earlier, Uli Hoeness, the honorary president of Bayern, spoke about Lewandowski. “If we didn’t have Robert Lewandowski, thank God we have him, FC Bayern would definitely have to take a look at Haaland. It’s obvious that Erling would look good for any team. However, Lewandowski could play at this level for another 3-4 years. Bayern would be head over heels. if he got rid of Robert Lewandowski and got Erling Haaland at all costs ” – he said in an interview with the newspaper “SID”.
The lack of the Left is the end of domination. “The Scaffolding Will Collapse”
People associated with the Bavarian club often talk about the key role of Lewandowski. Recently, the winner of the Golden Ball, Lothar Matthaeus, spoke about the three pillars of Bayern, without which the club could lose its hegemon status in the domestic backyard. “Perhaps Bayern’s dominance will end when the scaffolding around Neuer, Mueller and Lewandowski collapses and other teams work well. As long as these three play for Bayern, there will be no other champion.” – spoke in an interview with the magazine “Kicker”.
The Neuer and Mueller contracts will also expire in 2023, however their contractual position is slightly different. Plettenburg reports that only Manuel Neuer is currently in talks with the club and possibly extend the contract. Both the player and the club are not worried about Thomas Mueller’s deal – there is no rush.
If “Lewy” does not extend the contract this year, then, in accordance with Bosman’s law, in January 2023 he will be able to talk to any club about the details of the contract.
This season, Lewandowski played 26 games, scoring 31 goals. Julian Nagelsmann’s team still remains the Bundesliga leader, and the Polish sniper ranks at the top of the scorer’s ranking with twenty goals.
