Robert Lewandowski is expected to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, to become, according to the German press, a new soccer player for Barcelona. Lewandowski spoke to Bayern and refused the renewal of his contract, which expires in 2023.
In order not to lose him on a free transfer next year, Bayern will have to monetize this summer. Bayern Munich's Hasan Salihamizdic had said the club would not be willing to let the center forward go but the situation has completely changed.
