Robert Lewandowski has been very vocal about how badly he wants to move away from Bayern Munich. He has spent 8 years with the club and is desperately looking for a way out.
Ever since the news of Lewandowski looking for a new club broke out, the internet went bananas. Such was the severity of the information that Oliver Kahn, the president of Munich, called them baseless rumors. However, in recent times Lewandowski has been absolutely clear about his priorities. And that is to leave the German club.
Earlier in a statement, he cleared the air about his wanting out by saying, “my story at Bayern is over.” This broke the internet as, finally, the rumors turned out to be true.
On Monday, Lewandowski put out another major statement. He revealed his deep desire to leave the club at the earliest. The Polish striker said to Sports Onet:
“Firstly, something went out inside me, and it’s something you can’t recover, can’t make up for… With what I acquired thanks to Bayern — and (reciprocally) Bayern thanks to me — it would be better to find a solution acceptable to both parties. I want to leave Bayern, that’s clear.”
Lewandowski’s stat at Bayern Munich
Talking about his time at the club, Lewandowski added that his loyalty and respect are essential attributes. And that he will leave behind several “friends,” not just colleagues at Bayern.
Lewandowski has been a massive part of the German side. Out of the 10 Bundesliga titles won by the Polish striker, eight came with Bayern. He has won four DFB Cup titles, six DFL Super Cup titles, and 1 UEFA Super Cup title. Recently he won his maiden Champions League title with the club in 2020.
Lewandowski also has secured several personal accolades. Last year he scored 41 goals to break Gerrad Muller’s record of most goals in a season in the Bundesliga. He has scored a total of 253 goals in 238 appearances for the club.
Currently, Barcelona is in a pole position to sign Lewandowski. They have allegedly offered a sum of $34 million to acquire the striker’s services. And are most likely to grab him in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Lewandowski has confirmed the same in his statement as well. He clarified that he has not received any offer other than that from Barcelona.
