Lewandowski is said to have long since informed the people of Munich that he wanted to change in the summer. He also made it clear that he will not extend his contract, which runs until 2023. The most likely goal for the 33-year-old goal machine would be FC Barcelona in the event of a farewell. Bayern initially put a stop to this.

Up to 40 million transfer fee

In the meantime, however, voices in the club are said to be getting louder that would rather go into the future without Lewandowski than with a disgruntled superstar. The ‘Bild’ brings 35 to 40 million euros into play as a fee. Lewandowski only has one year left on his contract.
