Robert Lewandowski insists Bayern Munich story ‘is over’ but Bundesliga champions hit back at striker

The 33-year-old has one year left on his contract with the Bundesliga champions, but has made it increasingly clear in recent weeks that he is looking to walk away amid Barcelona links.

Speaking ahead of the Nations League clash between Poland and Wales, Lewandowski made it clear he believes he has played his last game for Bayern after spending eight years at the club.

“One thing is certain today – my story with Bayern is over,” Lewandowski said.

“After everything that’s happened in the past few months, I can’t imagine another good cooperation.

“Bayern are a serious club and I hope they don’t keep me just because they can. A transfer is the best solution for all parties. I hope they don’t stop me.

However, the Bayern hierarchy have insisted they don’t plan to sell the striker this summer and are willing to let him go for free in a year’s time instead.

Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn slammed Lewandowski for his comments and warned the player he won’t help his cause.

“I can’t tell you why Robert chose this way of communicating his situation,” Kahn told Sport1. “Public statements like that get you nowhere.

“Robert should know what he has at Bayern. Appreciation is not a one-way street.
