Lewandoski having just one year remaining on his contract with the club, they might need to think of a solution to solve this.
Poland international Robert Lewandowski only has a year left in his current contract with German giants Bayern Munich, but the rumours about him potentially parting ways with the clubs continues to circulate in the media.
In Bayern Munich's Amazon documentary "FC Bayern - Behind the Legend", a scene revealed sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, CEO Oliver Kahn and technical director Marco Neppe talking about Lewandoski's contract in an office at the club's headquarters.
: "We want to extend it. But now it's about the length of the deal because we have the rule that we only give one-year contracts to players over 31.
"So, in this case, it's not so easy."
There is such a rule in Bayern Munich, and it is being implemented. But with Lewandoski having just one year remaining on his contract with the club, they might need to think of a solution to solve this.
Last month, a Spanish outlet reported that the Polish striker had agreed to join Barcelona this summer as the Camp Nou outfit intends to offer him a four-year contract, and they will pay the German giants around €60 million for acquiring his services and football fans are allowed to place bets on what is deemed as one of the best apps when it comes to betting
regarding the future of Lewandowski.
However, considering the not-so-strong financial status of the Catalans, it is quite hard to believe that the report will happen. Plus, the Polish striker is yet to make any decision regarding his future as his agent, Pini Zahavi has not even started talks with Bayern concerning a contract extension. But this should be a concern for Bayern fans.
Furious for the sake of Bayern fans, Bavarian legend Lothar Matthaus is not pleased about Lewandoski's contract expiring next year with talks of extension yet to be ignited, and he believes that Bayern is making a mess of this operation.
Speaking to Sport Bild, Matthaus said: "If you haven't contacted Lewandowski's side up to now, I find that disrespectful. That would have been unthinkable under UliHoeness or Kalle Rummenigge.
"Bayern can count themselves lucky that Robert Lewandowski has such a great character and is a complete professional.
"I am surprised that nothing is progressing. You shouldn't put everything in the drawer and then just wait and see."
Well, the more a situation drags on, the more likely an agreement won't be reached and both parties could part ways. Another Bayern Munich legend, Steffen Effenberg, spoke on T-Online, saying: "If Bayern don't try to extend Lewandowski's contract, it will be the worst decision in the club's history."
However, the Bundesliga giants are insisting that there's no need to rush as they are keen on letting Lewandowski remain at Allianz Arena. Club president Herbert Hainer went as far as admitting that he would love to see the Polish striker end his football career with the Bavarians. This is why many believed that Bayern is willing to break their contract rule to keep the striker at the club.
Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller are also in this position, so it should be quite easy for Bayern to justify their change of policy for three pivotal players instead of making an exception for just one of them.
Oliver Kahn claimed that the club will not be placed under pressure by external forces as he is calm and relaxed about Lewandowski's contract situation.
Lewandowski is famously acknowledged as the best striker in the world, and he has been able to score 45 goals in only 38 appearances in all competitions this season, and also played a pivotal role in securing a spot for Poland in the FIFA World Cup.
Just like every other club across the world, Bayern Munich was also hit hard by the financial crisis brought about by Covid-19. Despite stadiums being fully opened, it will still take a while before the bank balances recover.
It is more likely to see Lewandowski remain at Bayern Munich, especially if the German giants decide to offer him over one-year in a contract extension. He will continue to score his goals and bag more honours for his football career.
