After Kingsley Coman’s poker breakthrough, FC Bayern Munich continues to plan for the future. In the case of Robert Lewandowski, negotiations can be tricky. That reports Sport Bild.
The top scorer therefore wants a long-term contract offer, as a kind of appreciation on the part of the club. His current working paper expires in the summer of 2023. However, as a player over 30, the 33-year-old falls into the category of players who should really only receive preferential one-year contracts with Bayern.
As for Lewandowski’s future at Bayern, further developments surrounding coveted BVB goalgetter Erling Haaland could also play a role. According to Sport Bild, Bayern should have deposited their interest with his adviser Mino Raiola.
A commitment this summer seems unrealistic. On the other hand, a lengthy extension with Lewandowski could diminish Haaland’s prospects in the event of a move to Munich. The rumors about Haaland have pissed off Lewandowski in the past. With an estimated annual salary of 24 million euros, Lewandowski is the top earner at Bayern. Poker about Lewandowski’s future could go on for even longer, with talks set to take place in the spring.
In addition, after the breakthrough in Coman Poker, Bayern will continue with further squad planning, according to the report. At Niklas Sule, there are signs of a free transfer in the summer. Like it SPOX and GOAL reported last year that Sule wants to use January to scan the market and identify possible alternatives for the summer. One thing is clear: Sule has never made it a secret that an engagement abroad, preferably in England, would one day appeal to him. But, contrary to popular belief, Newcastle United is not an option for Sule.
Bayern: Sule before the farewell? Gnabry-Poker is probably resting
According to Sport Bild, Sule was presented with several options, but his momentary hesitation suggests he is on the brink of saying goodbye.
However, negotiations on a new contract with Serge Gnabry are currently at a standstill. His advisers would apparently have to demand an annual salary of more than 15 million euros if the contract is extended beyond the previous end of the contract in 2023.
Furthermore, in the spring there will be further talks about the future of Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller, whose contracts expire in 2023. However, according to the report, both are not pushing for a club change.
