The forward's time with the German giants is nearing its conclusion
The striker's current contract runs until the end of next season, but he has already stated his desire to leave the club, and he could be sold before then chevalier. In recent months, Lewandowski has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, albeit no agreement has yet been reached.
What went wrong in negotiations?
Bayern Munich were certain that Lewandowski will sign a new contract on April 12th, exactly one month ago. "We definitely have Robert for another season," Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn told Amazon Prime on that date. "We know what we have in him and are at ease with it." Apparently there's a competition out there: 'Who will tell the biggest nonsense story about Robert Lewandowski?'
"The discussions will continue. We are not (crazy), and we are not talking the move of a player who averages 30 to 40 goals each season with us. "But it was clear from once that something was awry.
Lewandowski went public with his unhappiness on the same day Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga title, amid allegations that he was upset with the lack of progress in discussions with the club. "There will be a meeting soon," Lewandowski told Sky. "But nothing special has happened so far." "I'm also aware of the situation. For me, the situation is difficult."
What's next for Lewandowski?
Bayern Munich now have a difficult decision to make: Sell their best forward this summer without a direct replacement lined up, or let him leave for free next year?
With annual Champions League ambitions, they may feel compelled to keep Lewandowski to help them reach the final in 2022-23. However, neither alternative appears to be optimal, and it is uncertain how they would address the situation.
In a further setback for Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund confirmed the signing of top German prospect Karim Adeyemi this week, a reported target of the Bavarian club.
