According to reports, the future of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has continued to be an issue of major concern. The German Bundesliga giants definitely want their star player to sign a new contract at the club but the Polish international has pit contract talks on hold, giving other clubs the green light to make an offer for him that he may be willing to pay attention to.
Bayern Munich has already extended the contracts of key players like Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, and Kingsley Coman so far this season and even re-upped future stars like Paul Wanner and Gabriel VVidovi. While recent reports indicate that the club is expected to reach an accord with Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer as well, it seems like the two players facing the biggest hurdles on contract extensions are Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski.
For Gnabry, it appears to be a matter of salary and potential playing time issues that are driving a divide, but for Lewandowski…it’s just a matter of no talks taking place at all yet. While the Polish star will not let anything affect his focus on the season, Lewandowski reportedly wants to stay in Munich, but has not received an invitation to talk just yet as reported by transfer czar Fabrizio Romano:
Because of the lack of movement in negotiations so far, we are starting to see some clubs start to be linked to the Lewandowski, but it remains to be seen just serious pursuits from Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, and others might be.
According to football transfers expert Fabrizio Romano, Lewandowski is still open to options and want to assess his different choices before reaching a final decision about the club he will be playing for next season.
