Robert Lewandowski’s decision is firm. He wants to leave Bayern and play for Barça. The Polish striker wants to force his way out of the Allianz Arena this summer and celebrate his goals at Camp Nou instead, dressed in Blaugrana.
Per Sport Bild, Lewandowski has communicated to Bayern that he will not renew his deal. His contract is up in a year’s time but he wants to leave now. Their offer is insufficient to keep him - not raising his deal (15m plus 5m in variables, and one more year).
The decision, in Germany they say, is definitive. He is going to try and force his way out to Barcelona.
They say Hasan Salihamidzic, the club’s sporting director, is the main reason that Lewandowski is leaving. The Pole is sticking to the same steps that led David Alaba to Real Madrid. Now they will try to get a decent fee for the striker, who would be able to leave for free next summer.
