Robert Lewandowski announces decision to leave Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski has said he no longer wishes to play for the Bundesliga champions

The 33-year-old has been at Bayern since 2014 and has won 19 team trophies with the club.

He is under contract in Munich for another 13 months but he has made it clear that he wants to leave this summer.

As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Lewandowski declared: “My era at Bayern is over.

“I don’t see any possibility to continue playing for this club anymore.

“Bayern’s a serious club and I believe they won’t keep me, I don’t want to play there anymore. A transfer is the best solution. I hope they don’t stop me.”

With a year left on Lewandowski’s contract, Barcelona have reportedly made an offer of 32 million euros ($34.5 million) to sign him. In an interview with Polish broadcaster Eleven Sports PL, Lewandowski dropped a teaser about how he would enjoy living in Spain.

“I think it’s a really good place — not just to go on holiday there,” he said, adding that he has a house in Mallorca.

Bayern will find it very difficult to replace Lewandowski – a man who has scored 110 Bundesliga goals in the past three seasons.

But Bayern could possibly reinforce their attack with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, who has been tipped to leave Anfield this summer, but a fee is yet to be decided with Liverpool.

Mane has just one year left on his contract and after six seasons at Anfield, the Senegalese attacker seems keen for a new challenge.
