FC Bayern: Oliver Kahn with a word of power in the Causa Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski has now publicly announced that he will not extend his contract with FC Bayern in 2023. While club president Herbert Hainer called the conditions for a transfer in summer on Sunday morning, board boss Oliver Kahn spoke a word of power a little later.

When asked about a possible separation from Robert Lewandowski in the coming weeks, Hainer said, switched on in the program “Doppelpass” to “Hainer1”: “This is ok if both sides agree. Robert also said that on Saturday.”

Hainer added: “You have to see that you find a solution for both. That means it must also be a solution for FC Bayern”. According to media reports, the record champion will still be available for a transfer of around 40 million euros in a transfer in summer.

In contrast, Bavaria Munich’s CEO Oliver Kahn became clearer. “He has a contract until 2023. He will fulfill this contract. Basta!” Kahn told “Bavarian television” on Sunday afternoon on the sidelines of the championship celebration at the Causa Lewandowski.

FC Bayern knows the “whole theater”

The record champion is “very clear. This is so. There is no player who stands above FC Bayern and is larger than this club,” emphasized the Bayern boss.

The club knows the “whole theater and alarmism from the past. That doesn’t give us a headache,” Kahn continued.

Lewandowski was made an offer, “he rejected that, that is his right”. His former coach Otto Rehhagel once said, said Kahn: “Anyone who signs a contract at Bayern has to know what they did.”

Herbert Hainer also made it clear to “Hainer1” that a change in summer was not an option, since so at short notice there was no adequate replacement for Lewandowski.

“As we all said, there is no replacement for such a world-class player. And he has a contract and that’s why I assume that he fulfills the contract,” said Hainer.

Lewandowski Farewell to FC Bayern “His good right”

Conversely, this would mean that Lewandowski will leave the club free of charge in one year. However, this is not a horror scenario for the successor to Uli Hoeneß.

“It is his right not to extend the contract. Of course, he can also go free of charge, he also came to us free of charge at the time,” Hainer recalled the change of the center forward from BVB to Munich in 2014.

In addition, the club president commented on the attacker’s statement made after the last Bundesliga game that the association has so far made no offer to extend it.

Has FC Bayern Lewandowski made no offer at all?

“With Robert – or with his consultant – discussions took place, I was not there myself. But as far as I know, Hasan (Salihamidzic, editor’s note) and Oliver (Kahn) made an offer for extension and that is Apparently not accepted, “said Hainer in the show.

However, Hainer indicated that this offer was only sent verbally: “There is only a written offer when everything is negotiated orally. that.’ And then that is drawn up in writing “.

Up to this point, however, the conversations did not seem to have occurred.

In Munich at the latest in the summer of 2023, the question of a successor for the top scorer will arise again. The proposal to replace Lewandowski by Karim Benzema from Real Madrid, whose contract also expires, the Hainer called “creative” with a wink.

Patrik Schick from Bayer Leverkusen was also discussed as a possible new addition in the talks. However, Hainer did not want to comment on this personnel.
