Bayern Munich are ready to keep Robert Lewandowski under contract next season.

Polish international Robert Lewandowski has confirmed his desire to leave the Allianz Arena this summer, after eight campaigns at the club, while he still has 12 months left on his contract. However, the Bundesliga champions remain determined to hold on to their key asset, despite FC Barcelona’s growing interest in the 33-year-old. According to information from brandformer Bayern president Uli Hoeness has hinted that the club is not okay with the situation, due to the lack of a suitable replacement for Lewandowski.

Bayern clings on

« I’ve always said that if we don’t find an alternative, which seems difficult, then I would advocate that he stay one more year, » he said. « From there, we have to see if he goes on a free transfer next year, or if he extends his contract. » Hoeness’ comments attest that the club are working on contingency plans for the 2022/23 season as Lewandowski appears determined to force a departure. Liverpool star Sadio Mané has been linked with a move to Bavaria, but the Champions League finalists have rejected interest from Bayern as they aim to keep the Senegalese star at Anfield.
