Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed that he is not signing a new contract, revealing his intention to leave amid Barcelona rumors.

The Pole have a contract with Bavaria until June 2023 but have rejected their extension proposal and are now on the verge of an exit. Recently, Barcelona have been linked with the player. However, coach Xavi has said a transfer would be ‘complicated’, given their dire financial situation at the moment.

Sport Bild (via The Times of India) have reported that Lewandowski will not leave the club until the summer of 2023, but the 33-year-old is ready to reconsider his options. He say:

“I will not sign a new contract. We have to find the best solution for both sides. I told the club that if an offer comes, then we have to think about it – also for the club. ”

Followed by his comments following the final game of the season against Bayern Munich today. The player hinted that the match could be his last in a Bayern Munich shirt. He speak (as reported by Fabrizio Romano):

“It could very well be my last game for Bayern. I can’t say 100% but it could be.”

Pole joined Bayern on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. Since then, he has scored 344 goals in 375 games, winning 19 trophies, including a UEFA Champions League.

Robert Lewandowski has now equaled Gerd Muller’s record with seven Torjägerkanone titles in the Bundesliga. ◎ 2013/14 (20) 2015/16 (30) 2017/18 (29) 2018/19 (22) 2019/20 (34) 2020/21 (41) 2021/22 (35) Prize year consecutive bonuses for strikers.

Finishing with the top 35 goals this season, Lewandowski also received his seventh Bundesliga Golden Shoe, equaling Gerd Muller’s record.

Barcelona must pursue young players

Lewandowski may be the best striker right now, but he will be 34 years old by the time the 2022-23 season kicks in and won’t have many years left at the top.

Barcelona already have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who will be 33 in June, while Memphis Depay is 28. Instead of signing Lewandowski, the club could be better served by offering a young player who will stick around for the foreseeable future.

Xavi has shown a lot of faith in youth, so bringing in more senior players could hinder their progress. In addition, with Aubameyang shooting at all pillars and Depay also in good form recently, Barcelona do not need a striker right now.

Lewandowski’s arrival is only meant to intensify the competition for positions up front, with Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite also in the squad.
