Barcelona have been given a huge boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich’s prolific striker Robert Lewandowski ahead of the summer transfer window opening across Europe.
Bayern Munich’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has confirmed the Poland international does not want to extend his contract at the Allianz Arena and would like to leave.
Salihamidzic told Sky Sports in Germany, “I spoke to Lewa. In the conversation he told me that he did not want to accept our offer to extend the contract and that he would like to leave the club.”
Lewandowski’s contract expires in 2023 which means Bayern must sell before then to avoid losing the 33-year-old on a free transfer at the end of next season.
