Nagelsmann: «Lewandowski would be a great loss, we will have to find a striker»

The bomb Robert Lewandowski has already exploded. The Polish striker, virtual European Golden Shoe for the second consecutive season, confirmed this afternoon in Wolfsburg that his will is to leave the Bayern Munich and that he has already informed the club that he does not intend to renew the contract that expires in 2023. Everything, in the midst of the news that indicates that his signing is the great objective of the FC Barcelona. The coach of the Bundesliga champion, Julian Nagelmann, he practically resigned himself this Saturday to having to plan without his best scorer, although he did not yet dare to put a date on that possibility. «It would be a loss if Lewandowski left and the fact that he does not extend his contract makes us look for a new striker sometime next season who can replace Lewy next season» he said before recalling that the Polish international «has a contract until 2023».

At the same time, the great interest in breaking such a fruitful union between a player and his club, Lewandowski himself, left no room for doubt that his aspiration is to play for another team, although he did not clarify which one. «Today I probably played my last game with Bayern, I am not going to extend my contract with Bayern,» he said. «I can confirm that I spoke with Hasan Salihamidzic and informed him that the decision was made. Both sides have to think about the future. It’s better if we find the best solution», he commented. «If an offer comes, we have to think about it, also for the club. Both sides have to think about the future. That’s all I can say,» concluded the Bayern striker.
