Lewandowski's contract extension not a priority for Bayern

Sun 23 January 2022 | 17:33

The Polish star has entered the final 18 months of his contract with the club.

Bayern Munich

chairman Herbert Hainer has claimed that extending

Robert Lewandowski

's contract is not a necessary step for the club.

Lewandowski's contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of next season and there are many rumors about the future of the Polish striker. Last week, some sources reported that Bayern are ready to sell the Polish captain and do not want to lose him as a free agent. Lewandowski, who won THE BEST FIFA Player of the Year, has scored 82 goals in 68 games since the start of last season. This is the best performance in Europe and his closest rival is

Erling Haaland

, who has scored 64 goals in 61 games. However, Hainer does not consider extending Lewandowski's contract a priority for the club.

"I've already said this a few times. I would be happy if Robert ended his career at Bayern.

"Our sporting management is in constant contact with the players. We still have a little time with him. The contract runs until 2023." 

Hainer also confirmed that Manuel Neuer's contract extension until 2025 is more available for the club. He added:

"I am absolutely convinced Manuel will end his career at Bayern Munich. He can certainly play at this level for a few more years.

"He's still the world's best goalkeeper for me, and I'd be happy if we can announce it at some point. 

"We are in no hurry. Manuel knows what he has in us. We know what we have in him. He's been with us long enough now, so there is no rush. But at some point, I hope, it will happen."
