When will Robert Lewandowski leave FC Bayern? The Pole wants to leave immediately, the Munich team want to hold him for a while. Either way, the relationship seems broken. According to a report, it all started with a delicate statement on TV.

Dangerous statement: The separation has been decided, only the question of when is still pending: Robert Lewandowski will leave FC Bayern, according to his wish, preferably this summer. The Pole and his advisor emphasize that the Bavarian chapter is over and that the relationship with those responsible is heavily burdened. According to “Sport Bild” it all started in the TV studio of “Sport1” in the program “Doppelpass”.

“Full amateurs”: Bayern’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic said in August last year when he appeared on the show that Bayern were monitoring Erling Haaland’s situation at BVB. “60 games, 60 goals, you have to look at that, otherwise we would be complete amateurs.” That was probably a word too much for the sensitive Lewandowski. The Pole is said to have been dealing with a change in the summer of 2022 from that moment on.

“Key moment”: “Sport Bild” calls the statement on TV a “key moment”. As a result, Bayern held off their striker’s advisor, and the request for a contract extension had not come from the Munich side. The result is known: Lewandowski has now made his change request public, while Bayern emphasize that they want to keep him until the end of the contract next summer.
