The Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich and Barcelona soap opera continues to accumulate figures from the world of football who give their opinion on his possible departure from the Bavarian club. After Pini Zahavi, the Pole’s agent, explained the breakdown of negotiations with Kahn and Salihamidzic, another club figure has spoken out.
This time it was Uli Hoeness, the honorary president, who was hard on the ‘Cule’ team in a interview with ‘RTL’: “Barcelona wants to sign Lewandowski when they had a debt of 1.3 billion euros six months ago. In Germany they would have been bankrupt a long time ago.
“The bankruptcy judge is knocking on their door and they are making a millionaire offer to a Bayern player,” Hoeness said. He then made it clear again that he is tied to the club until 2023: “Robert is under contract. At the moment, no one at Bayern will let Lewandowski out of this contract.”
“Obviously we haven’t found a replacement so far, so our opinion is clear. If he stays, plays well and continues to feel comfortable in Germany with his family, maybe he will come in January and say: ‘Wow, I really like it here, maybe I’ll stay two or three more years!
