It is undisputed that Robert Lewandowski would rather leave FC Bayern today than tomorrow. But when the farewell will work out is still a struggle. If the Pole leaves, a Liverpool FC star should be very keen to move to the Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is still covered about a possible move to FC Barcelona. "Honestly, that depends on many factors and not just how much I want it, but also what happens is important," said the 33-year-old on the sidelines of the Formula 1 race in Monaco on the Polish TV station Eleven Sports when asked how much he would like to be a player for the Catalans. His situation is clear, the Pole said. "So there's no need to continue to arouse sympathy and talk more about this topic."
Lewandowski had expressed his desire to change after the last game of the season in the Bundesliga. Since then, the international has been linked with Barcelona, who are said to have already made an offer. Lewandowski's contract in Munich runs until the summer of 2023. The board of directors led by Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic insist on compliance with the contract. In the diffuse transfer vortex around the top striker, however, there could soon be more clarity. "I think the time will come soon to give more information about it. I can say more about it soon," Lewandowski said on Sky TV.
Will a star from Liverpool follow the Poles willing to emigrate? At least Sadio Mané's situation is apparently very similar to Lewandowski's: the 30-year-old decided to leave coach Jürgen Klopp's club this summer, wrote the English "Guardian". Most recently, there was speculation about a move to FC Bayern in the Bundesliga. Mané and Liverpool lost Saturday night's premier class final 1-0 to Real Madrid. The Senegalese's contract runs for another year.
According to information from Sport1, Mané tends to move to Munich because he could play a more prominent role there than in the other prospect Paris Saint-Germain. Sky wants to know that Bayern Mané wants to offer a three-year contract until 2025. Accordingly, a transfer fee of 30 million euros plus possible additional payments of up to 10 million euros is under discussion.
Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard advised against a move. Mané's team-mate Mohamed Salah has already said he's staying, current Aston Villa manager told BT Sport. "I know there's a bit of a fuss around Mané. But why would they want to leave this Liverpool team when they know they're competitive at the end of the season?"
