The XXL casting of Bayern Munich for the succession of Robert Lewandowski

We must believe that the transfer window of the summer of 2022 will be that of the best strikers in the world of football. Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland are already making headlines in the European media, but they are not the only ones. In Germany, while such a fanciful scenario was being thought of, the possibility of seeing Robert Lewandowski (33) leave Bayern Munich is very real. Historic scorer of the Bavarian club (236 goals scored in 250 Bundesliga games), the Polish international (129 appearances, 75 goals) is free in one year and has confirmed that he is going through a difficult period. “There will be a meeting soon, but nothing special has happened so far. I also notice everything that is going on. The situation is not that simple for me. “

What’s after this announcement

Several top players targeted

Not enough to make Munich residents falter. The latter, through their sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić, keep repeating that Lewy will not leave Bavaria. “Sure (we want to keep it). Lewandowski is highly regarded. Fans love it. But he is the one who earns the most in the club. (…) I talked to Lewa. We’ll also talk to the agent about him. He has a contract until 2023. We have plenty of time. We have the best striker in the world and we are proud of it. We haven’t negotiated yet. But that’s what we’re going to do now. He will remain, he is still under contract until 2023.

However, Bayern don’t want to be caught off guard should their league scorer decide to leave. Photo it even teaches us that the Germans have already taken action at this moment. Therefore, the newspaper claims that the Bavarians contacted Sébastien Haller’s agent. Author of an XXL 2021/2022 season with Ajax Amsterdam, the Ivorian has scored 20 goals in 27 Eredivisie matches and above all 11 wins in 8 Champions League matches. Recruited for 22.5 million euros in 2021, the former Auxerrois would be estimated by the Lancers at 40 million euros and would expect an annual salary of 10 million euros from his courtiers. But there are other options.

There are also quieter options

Another darling of the transfer window, Benfica forward Darwin Núñez is also in Monaco’s sights. His agent, Jorge Mendes, is working to find him a more exclusive club and this file promises to be much more expensive for Bayern. Mendes is aiming for a transfer of over 100 million euros and the player would ask for 17 million euros per year in salary. In a bankruptcy situation at Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku is also on this list. The Belgian would dream of a return to Inter, but the Nerazzurri cannot afford to pay the 80 million minimum required by Chelsea. Is the Monk ready to write a big check to revive Lukaku?

It is also not excluded that Bayern will choose more local solutions. Starting with the Austrian from Stuttgart Saša Kalajdžić. The 24-year-old has scored 21 pawns in 51 league games since 2019. More expensive, Czech Bayer Leverkusen Patrik Schick offers a more consistent return (21 goals in 24 Bundesliga games this season), but his price is even since. Bayer asks € 80 million from its neighbor in Munich. Finally, the very young Benjamin Šeško (18) from Salzburg is mentioned, but above all as a bet for the future.
