Robert Lewandowski Stuns Bayern As He Refused Extending His Contract With The Club

Robert Lewandowski has personally told Bayern Munich that he will not be extending his contract, which is due to end in the summer of 2023, according Sky Sports Deutschland.

The 33-year-old wants a new challenge, with financial incentives playing no or a very minor role in his decision making.

Lewandowski has already won 19 trophies with Bayern, as well as the Best FIFA Men's Player, while he has scored 49 goals and assisted seven more in 45 matches across all competitions this season.

Despite Bayern wanting to keep the Poland international, his current stance could force them to let him depart in the summer to avoid losing him as a free agent next year.

Barcelona are doing all they can to sign the striker and he wants the move to Camp Nou, hoping to make it in the summer rather than having to wait.

It could be difficult for Barcelona to complete the deal due to their financial situation, but Lewandowski hopes that Bayern will take into account what he has done for the club to help fulfil his wishes.

Bayern face VfL Wolfsburg in their final game of the Bundesliga season on Saturday, and if Lewandowski gets his way it could be his final game for the Bavarians.
