The Poland captain Robert Lewandowski is always one of the greatest ever strikers to have played for the Bundesliga club Bayern Munich. Robert Lewandowski has cherished a phenomenal career at the Bundesliga club since joining them in 2014. The Polish striker has been a consistent performer for the German Club, scoring 344 goals across all competitions. But Lewandowski has already made up his mind and publicly confirmed that he wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer. Lewandowski admitted that he intends to leave the German club in order to plunge into a fresh challenge in his stunning career.
However, Bayern Munich is in no mood to let go of their star forward player that easily. Reportedly, the German club has now increased their asking price for the Polish striker. As per a report, Bayern Munich wants a sum of 60 million euros (around USD 63.3 million) to let Lewandowski leave the club this summer.
Bayern’s tough and hard attitude toward Lewandowski has come after the player asked for a move away with only one year left on his current contract with the Bundesliga champions. The 33-year-old forward striker likes to move to FC Barcelona rather than wait to become a free agent.
Earlier this week, Barcelona had made an offer of around 40 million Euros (around USD 42 million) to Bayern Munich. But the same was turned down by the German club, who are now holding out for a big fee for Lewandowski. But Lewandowski has clearly expressed his intentions to the club management that he does not want to extend his contract beyond the 2022-23 season.
Despite Lewandowski’s strong thirst to secure a transfer, the German club is making all possible efforts to keep the star striker with them by increasing their demands significantly. Lewandowski played an instrumental role and helped Bayern Munich to win the Champions League in 2019-20.
Lewandowski has proved himself as one of the best strikers in club football over the last few years. He has played a major role in Bayern Munich’s success with eight Bundesliga titles, three German Cups, and one Champions League title. The Polish striker has also been the German club’s top scorer for the last five seasons in a row.
