Will Robert Lewandowski join FC Barcelona next summer? According to information from “Sport Bild”, the Polish striker from FC Bayern was disappointed by the actions of the management level at the German record champions. Contract negotiations falter. According to the German medium, while the Pole is in contract talks with Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller, he is waiting for concrete facts. Even more: The Lewandowski side feels the actions of the Bayern bosses around Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic as disrespectful.
There are currently two problems. Lewandowski himself would like to extend the contract by two years. However, the club tends to only extend the striker’s contract by one year. In addition, the people of Munich expect a high salary from Poland. Accordingly, Lewandowski should demand 30 million euros instead of 24 million euros. However, this is not officially confirmed. According to media reports, Munich is already looking for a successor. A potential candidate would be ÖFB team striker Sasa Kalajdzic, who is currently still under contract with VfB Stuttgart. Even before his move from Admira to VfB Stuttgart in the summer of 2019, the tall attacker was a perspective player for the Munich team. Kalajdzic (24) has had a strong development with the Swabians. Kalajdzic scored 16 Bundesliga goals in 33 appearances last season.
The fact is: the Austrian’s contract with Stuttgart runs until the summer of 2023. Bayern and Kalajdzic’s management are said to have been in contact since January. However, the Austrian international is not the only candidate. Red Bull Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko should also be on Bayern Munich’s wish list. In addition, Patrik Schick from Bayer Leverkusen should be a topic for the German record champions. The Czech goalscorer played a great European Championship last year and scored five goals in the tournament. Erling Haaland is too expensive for those responsible for Bayern, as the Norwegian striker should cost 350 million euros in total.
