Robert Lewandowski’s contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of next season and the Polish striker’s career future remains uncertain.

“To this day, Robert has a contract with us for next season. We are in contact with Robert and we want him to stay at Bayern Munich for as long as possible.

“We also have to look at the situation of the players. The players who have done well in this club for so many years are excellent. Robert has become a world footballer with us. He is a player who has the ability to score 30, 40 goals a year. Of course, at some point, the players believe Like these: “I conquered everything here and won everything.” So it takes time to convince him to stay here.

Khan also left a warning to Lewandowski. We will decide when Bayern will start contract negotiations. We know very well what we owe to this player. We must respect the player. We do not allow anyone to pressure us. With Mueller, I’m pretty sure we’ll be able to say something in the short term. We also have a very good understanding with Manuel [Neuer]. We will not let ourselves be pressured when it comes to making these important decisions.”

Bayern’s CEO assumed that this situation could “create a little friction in the team”, but was convinced that “the players handle it easily”, because they are “professionals”. Kahn went further and compared Lewandowski’s situation to that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

It’s the same with Robert. Incidentally, these conversations also cover financial issues. We all know we’ve had two difficult years.” As a club, you have to think about how you can continue to manage all this in the current situation, because Bayern have also suffered in these last two years.”
