Despite eight years of unparalleled success and a perfect domestic titles record, Robert Lewandowski has said he no longer wishes to play for Bayern Munich. The 33-year-old has been at Bayern since 2014 and has won 19 team trophies since then .
Lewandowski said, “My era at Bayern is over. I don’t see any possibility to continue playing for this club anymore. Bayern’s a serious club and I believe they won’t keep me, I don’t want to play there anymore. A transfer is the best solution. I hope they don’t stop me.”
Why Lewandowski still wants to leave Bayern Munich?
With his contract expiring in 2023, Lewandowski knows his next long-term deal could possibly be the final one he signs before his powers start to wane. Perhaps the most obvious topic at play is this: having won all there is to win, the 33-year-old has opted for a different challenge to conclude his career.
The forward spends almost all of his career in Germany and contributed to eight of Bayern’s 10 straight German titles.
For Lewandowski’s prowess in front of goal, the competitiveness of the German top-flight has undoubtedly dwindled in recent years.
