FC Bayern Munich fears loss

ONERobert Lewandowski stood alone in Wolfsburg in front of the Bayern fans and let himself be celebrated with the goal-scoring cannon. In front of the Sky camera, the world footballer then publicly asked FC Bayern to think about his summer transfer.

“Of course I still have a one-year contract,” the 33-year-old said. But he told sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic: “If there is an offer, then we have to think about it – also for the club. Both sides have to think about the future. That’s all I can say,” he said. the old and new top scorer in the Bundesliga. “We have to wait and see what happens.”

So it could have been the last appearance of the top striker in the Munich jersey. In the 2-2 (2-1) victory at VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday, he scored his 35th goal of the season and got the fifth top scorer in a row. Coach Julian Nagelsmann described the goal scorer’s possible change after the match as a “loss”.

The coach referred to the offensive man’s current contract until mid-2023. “There is little room for grief. You have to try to get the best out of the situation, “said Nagelsmann. “It’s not nice when you lose a good player,” he said. But there are more important things in life to be really sad about.

One day before the championship celebration on the balcony of Munich City Hall, coach Nagelsmann’s team could not get further than a draw on the last day of the Bundesliga football match. Josip Stanisic gave Munich the lead in front of 30,000 spectators (17 minutes). Lewandowski made it 2-0 (40 ‘).

Jonas Wind reduced the lead for Wolfsburg just before the break and in the second half Max Kruse (58th) equalized for VfL, which was not undeserved. After a 2-2 draw against VfB Stuttgart and a 1-3 draw in Mainz 05, the record champions got off to a good start, but became too lax as the game progressed. For the third time in a row, Munich did not get three points – it was not a worthy end to the season for the Bayern stars.

Now, the changing theater around Lewandowski could create further excitement. According to a report from Sport1, his adviser and FC Barcelona have verbally agreed on a transfer for the summer. The size of the transfer fee could make Lewandowski’s move to Barcelona impossible, at least for the time being, the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” wrote on Saturday.

Because if other big European clubs enter the battle for the top scorer, it can quickly become too expensive for the financially needy FC Barcelona. However, the Spanish newspaper “Sport” reported on Saturday that Bayern had allegedly lowered their claims to 35 to 40 million. Barça also “considered” such a sum, the newspaper continued.

Lewandowski got the top scorer cannon in the Bundesliga with a big lead over Patrik Schick from Leverkusen – who is being traded as one of his successor candidates. The top candidate is Sadio Mané from Liverpool FC. Sasa Kalajdzic from VfB Stuttgart is said to have moved into Munich’s focus. The 24-year-old’s contract with the Swabians expires in a year.

Following their tenth national triumph, Bayern are expected to take part in internal celebrations in Munich on Saturday night. On Sunday, the championship party opens on the balcony of the town hall in Munich. Maybe for the last time with Lewandowski. In the basket, the Pole so hesitantly raised his fingers to the stadium hit “Sweet Caroline”.
