Report: Lewandowski’s free transfer inevitable if Bayern don’t find his replacement
The future of Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has been the main topic over the past few weeks. The club has been the center of criticism due to their hesitant stance towards their top goalscorer.
After a period of silence between the board and the Polish striker, things might seem to change in the coming weeks. According to ‚SPORT1‘, Bayern Munich should now conduct the first talks with Lewandowski in the next few weeks. The German media reported recently that Oliver Kahn is determined to extend Lewandowski’s contact and will personally speak to the Pole.
However, according to the German TV channel, it doesn’t indicate anything that the contract of the striker will certainly be extended once the club holds talks. SPORT1 claims that if there is no agreement between the player’s side and the club, Lewandowski should most likely be sold this summer.
Not only that, but the club would most likely let him leave on a free transfer next summer and accept such risk, in case there is no agreement between the club and Lewandowski and if the club itself does not find a suitable replacement for the striker.
Lewandowski leaving on a free transfer would be a huge blow not only financially but also squad-wise. Although a possible Lewandowski departure would free up wages, Bayern would not generate money for the striker and seek his replacement nor spend the money to upgrade a certain position.
