Barcelona Receive Huge Blow As Bayern Munich Refuse To Sell Polish Striker.
It is understood that the Bundesliga champions are offering the Polish international a new one-year deal. This will see him extend his stay at the Bavarian outfit until 2024. However, Robert Lewandowski is not happy with the offer as he wants a contract that will see him play at the highest level for at-leas three more years.
In addition, the Pole is also unsatisfied with the salary offered to him by the German club. Bayern Munich are unable to offer him a better pay raise amid the financial struggles.
Bayern Munich have already extended the contracts of Kingsley Coman and Thomas Muller. They are also aiming to renew Manuel Neuer and Serge Gnabry. Extending Lewandowski'sdeal to meet his demands, could exact a heavy toll on their financial structure.
