Following Bayern Munich’s shock exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Villarreal, the German champions are set for more setbacks ahead of the next season.

According to RMC Sport’s Loic Tanzi, legendary striker Robert Lewandowski has made up his mind to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old has been with the Bavarian giants since 2014 when he signed on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund. Over the past eight years, the striker has scaled great heights at the club, helping them dominate German football and win a continental trophy as well.

However, things have been a bit frosty between Lewandowski and the club for a while, as per the report. It is claimed that the Poland captain is unhappy that Bayern have not made more efforts to try and tie him down to a new contract, with his current one expiring in 2023.

It further states that no meaningful talks over a new deal have taken place between the player and the club. Bayern are willing to putting off negotiations as they are believed to be open to the prospect of letting him leave for free next year.

The situation has left the former Borussia Dortmund striker agitated, more so, as other clubs are lining up to sign him in the summer, especially Barcelona.

The report states that the Blaugrana president Joan Laporta has held multiple meetings with Lewandowski’s agent, Pini Zahavi, to reach a financially feasible agreement over a potential transfer in the summer window.

Bayern Munich, though, will create a significant roadblock in Barcelona’s pursuit of the prolific scorer, with Die Roten director Oliver Kahn recently stating that ‘the club are not crazy’ to consider selling him.

The report also adds that Lewandowski is yet to verbally inform the German champions of his desire to leave the club. He is still waiting to see if the Bavarian giants make a proper contract proposal, with a meeting between all parties likely to take place in May.
