It is understood that Bayern Munich have made it clear to Robert Lewandowski and his agent that they will not let the striker leave in the summer. The Bavarian outfit wants the 33-year-old to remain with the club and see out his contract.
Barcelona seemed the favourites to land the Polish international as he was set to move away from the German champions. However, after recent developments, the possibility of that move happening are extremely thin. The 33-year-old might have to force his way out.
Bayern Munich chief president Uli Hoeness recently offered his thoughts on the forward's situation and is confident the striker is staying at the Allianz Arena. 'I assume one hundred percent that Robert Lewandowski will play for Bayern next season,' he said.
Barcelona have made the 33-year-old their top priority and are willing to offer him a three-year deal, something Bayern aren't too keen on just yet. However, the Bavarians are open to the possibility of extending the striker's contract in the future.
