Now, Bayern Munich are frustrated at Lewandowski’s statement, and CEO Oliver Kahn has now responded.
‘I don’t understand why Robert is doing this. Public statements like this don’t do anything, he toldSPORT1.
‘Robert became a world class footballer here twice and he should his place at Bayern.’
Lewandowski is not a happy man at Bayern Munich for a long time.
MySportDab understands that he told friends about leaving when Bayern’s sporting director spoke of signing Erling Haaland.
Lewandowski got furious at the idea of being replaced by Haaland.
He has scored 344 goals in 374 games across all competitions for Bayern Munich.
He has won the Bundesliga at Bayern since he joined the club.
Lewandowski’s comments will now put many European clubs on high alert, and they would love to sign one of the world’s top strikers.
Barcelona want to sign the striker, and are currently leading the race to sign him.
But, Lewandowski’s former agent, Maik Barthel, has said that the striker has always wanted to play for Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are also considering a move for Lewandowski due to Romelu Lukaku’s uncertain future.
