KEY POINTS

  • Lewandowski is contracted with Bayern until 2023
  • He is currently the highest earner at the club
  • Lewandowski is yet to sign an extension with Bayern

Bayern Munich could reportedly sell star striker Robert Lewandowski during the 2022 summer window. 

Lewandowski, 33, is contracted with Bayern Munich until 2023. The current German champions have a one-year contract extension policy for players over the age of 30, but the Allianz Arena side is willing to make an exception for the Polish playmaker and offer him a two-year contract, according to Marca.com, via German media outlet SPORT BILD.

Lewandowski is the current highest earner at Bayern Munich with a weekly wage of $448,459, reported Salary Sport. However, as per the new deal, the former Dortmund forward's salary is set to be slashed by an unconfirmed amount, the Marca report further claimed.

If Lewandowski rejects a contract extension from Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga club will prepare to part ways with him in the upcoming summer.

The news comes just days after Lewandowski was crowned FIFA's Best Men's Player of the Year, beating Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool.

Lewandowski's current market value is around $56 million, according to Transfermarkt

Despite being close to 34, the Polish striker is currently one of the best goal scorers. He has netted 34 goals and three assists in 27 competitive appearances for Bayern Munich this season.

In the previous campaign, Lewandowski finished with an incredible 48 goals in 40 games. 

If Lewandowski leaves, Bayern Munich are hopeful of bringing in Dortmund's Erling Haaland as his replacement. Earlier this month, the Bundesliga holders made contact with Haaland's super-agent Mino Raiola over a potential transfer for the young forward, according to soccer media outlet Bavarian Football Works

Haaland, who is contracted with Dortmund until 2024, is expected to leave the Signal Iduna Stadium side as his release clause of $87 million becomes active at the end of the 2021-22 campaign. The Norwegian star has been linked with other top European clubs as well, including Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.
