Bayern Munich set €60m price tag for frustrated Robert Lewandowski
The Team today report that Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski could be set to leave Bavaria this summer, with one year remaining on his contract.
The Polish international says he is frustrated by the lack of consideration shown to him by the team he has been playing with since 2014.
He has only met the club’s management – Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidžić – once in the past two weeks, in a short conversation which did not touch on his future.
Another meeting, this time joined by his agent Pini Zahavi, is scheduled for next week. The 33-year-old wants to wait to see what Bayern’s intentions are, with Barcelona showing concrete interest in him.
The club don’t want to offer him a two-year extension on an even higher salary than he is currently receiving (€24m per season), but instead are looking to offer a one-season contract on the same salary. , as they did with Thomas. Muller and Robert Lewandowski.
Beyond the talks off the pitch, the former Borussia Dortmund man is said to be uncomfortable with manager Julian Nagelsmann’s system, especially as he often has to walk away and see the ball less.
The club have priced him at €60million, while the list of potential replacements includes in-form France international Christopher Nkunku from Leipzig, as well as Patrik Schick from Bayer Leverkusen. Romelu Lukaku has also been linked, while Kahn said Erling Haaland is out of their price range.
