FC Bayern – Riddles about Robert Lewandowski: Why the FCB star’s situation is “not easy”.

Robert Lewandowski was in a good mood when he went to the “Sky” microphone shortly after the final whistle. The tenth championship in a row for FC Bayern is “a great story”, each championship title is something “special” in itself. For trophy collectors like him and his club, it’s always about proving themselves.

After the pleasant questions had been dealt with, however, the expression of the Pole became darker. His future or non-future in Munich, that is, what has occupied fans and sports magazines for weeks, came into focus.

Of course, he noticed the latest media reports. He did not reveal whether he was referring to the reports announcing an almost certain departure in the summer against Barcelona or those who seemed a little more reserved. In any case, it is not written correctly.

The 33-year-old was otherwise gripped by cryptic statements – as if he just did not want to step on anyone’s toes, but still let it be known that his current situation is somewhat stressful.

“So far nothing special has happened”

“There have been no talks with Bayern yet,” he said, adding: “The only thing I know is that there will be a meeting soon. Nothing special has happened so far.” Lewandowski’s remarks did not sound like the ultimate will to continue playing in the Bavarian state.

When asked if he would extend his contract with FCB, he explained: “Both sides must see. I want to see what happens. It’s not that easy for me either.” After the 3-1 victory over Dortmund and the “Sky” interview, which Lewandowski saw as rather uncomfortable, it was time for the well-deserved championship party in the center of Munich.

Lewandowski’s short performance at the champion party

Far away from annoying questions about the future, just shake the bowl with your teammates in a relaxed way. But Lewandowski’s appearance was mysterious. Unlike his teammates who partyed out at night, the goal scorer, according to the “Sport1” service, was just under an hour before he left again with friends.

In doing so, he inadvertently left room for interpretation and speculation. “Has he had enough of Bayern?” For example, “Bild-Zeitung” asked for Lewandowski’s short stay and wondered: “Maybe it was even the last title party for Lewandowski …”

Salihamidzic announces: Lewy will stay until 2023

Foggy statements, enigmatic performance at the championship celebration. Any indications of a possible exit in the summer? Obviously not. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic spoke clearly on Sunday afternoon in the football talk show “Sky 90”. He can not see “that the fronts are hardening”, Lewandowski enjoys “great appreciation” from the German record champions.

Therefore, the club is not even thinking of letting Lewandowski, whose contract runs until 2023, go at the end of the season. “Obviously, we need to talk about what’s next now.” Statements that have hardly fallen for good in the Lewandowski camp. According to “Sport Bild”, the player and his agent previously wanted to leave Bayern if the contract was not extended.

Tough negotiations are on the way

It is clear that the negotiations will be tough. As the “kicker” recently reported, Lewandowski is calling for a working paper by 2025 with even better conditions than before. The goalkeeper is currently said to earn around 20 million euros gross a year, Salihamidzic explained on “Sky 90” that Lewandowksi was the “top earner”. For the time being, the people of Munich should not be ready to meet the new, more economically demanding wishes.

All indications are that the whole case will drag on for a while. It remains complicated, the lively guesswork continues.
