Bayern Munich ‘are prepared to offer Robert Lewandowski a fresh two-year contract extension to remain with the club.’
Bayern Munich is apparently willing to make an exception to their club policy and extend Robert Lewandowski’s contract by two years.
The 33-year-old striker has 23 goals in 19 Bundesliga appearances this season but his contract expires after the current campaign.
Although the current German champions have a one-year contract extension policy for players over 30, BILD through MARCA suggest they are prepared to make an exception for the Poland marksman.
Bayern Munich are reportedly willing to offer Lewandowski a two-year extension, although the arrangement will see his stated weekly income of £369,000 lowered by an unspecified amount.
The Bavarian club has also offered a one-year extension at the same wage, but the source adds that if the former Borussia Dortmund striker rejects both offers, they would consider selling him.
The announcement comes just days after Lewandowski was named FIFA’s Best Men’s Player of the Year, defeating Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
Bayern executives, notably CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, are hoping the problem will be handled quickly, but will pursue Erling Haaland in the event Lewandowski leaves.
Haaland is poised to join Bundesliga rivals Dortmund in the summer when his £64m release clause becomes live.
Lewandowski, on the other hand, refrained from speculating on his future following his award at The Best FIFA gala.
‘When you demonstrate your ability on the pitch, it makes no difference whether you play for team A, B, or C,’ he explained.
‘I can’t worry about other teams or a new deal too much.
‘At the end of the day, I need to remain focused and do my best. That is always the first thing that comes to mind. I’m an accomplished player who conceals everything else. There is still plenty time. I maintain a calm and patient demeanor and avoid tension.’
