Robert Lewandowski is unhappy with Bayern Munich's new contract offer.
Sport says Lewandowski's anger with Bayern continues to grow. He has still not digested the disappointing contract offer made by the club to his agent, Pini Zahavi. He is not happy with the duration offered nor the salary on the table, says Sport.
He is more convinced than ever that his time in the Bundesliga has reached an end and it's time to take on a new challenge at the top of the game at a time when he can leave a transfer fee for Bayern. That's where Barcelona come into the picture.
Zahavi is due to meet with Bayern in the coming days for more talks. Lewandowski has a contract until 2023 and they have offered him a one-year extension, until 2024. They would study an additional second year.
Lewandowski has said in public he feels in shape to compete at the top level for three more years, until he is 36.
For now, Barça can just play a secondary role. Due to the desire of Lewandowski and his agent, they have no alternative but to wait in the background.
