Robert Lewandowski’s agent has broken his silence on speculation surrounding the striker’s future and has made it clear the Poland international is dreaming of a move to Barcelona.
Pini Zahavi told Bild that he felt forced to speak out due to Bayern Munich’s ongoing insistence that the 33-year-old must see out his contract at the club which runs until 2023.
“For Lewandowski, Bayern is history, ” he said. “Actually, I didn’t want to speak in public because I have great respect for this historic club. However, I cannot fail to react to Hasan Salihamidzic’s statements. No, there was no offer from Bayern. The fact is that Robert wants to leave Bayern after eight years of working together, during which he gave everything to the club. Now, at the age of almost 34, he has a chance to realize his life dream.”
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic had been critical of Zahavi in an interview with Sport1. The club chief accused the agent of trying to tempt the striker away from the Bundesliga champions, as reported by Yahoo Sports.
“He got an offer. I don’t know what the agent said to his player, but we definitely made an offer,” he said. “We had a conversation with the consultant and said very clearly how we imagined the future, with a very clear sum and terms. He has an advisor who has turned his head and has turned it all year round. It’s not clean.”
