Robert Lewandowski said on Monday that his story with Bayern Munich was over and that he could not imagine staying on with the German champions.

The Polish star striker told reporters in Warsaw:

Today it is certain that my story with Bayern has come to an end.

I can’t imagine further cooperation, after what has happened over the last few months.

A transfer will be the best solution. I trust that Bayern won’t stop me, just because they can.

Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic said earlier this month that Lewandowski informed the club’s boss that he wanted to leave, confirming reports the Bundesliga’s second-highest career scorer could be on his way out despite having a contract until 2023.

Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez said the club are interested in signing Lewandowski and confirmed negotiations had begun.

Xavi told a news conference earlier this month:

Yes, Lewandowski is an option. He has already said he wants to leave, there are negotiations, but he still has a contract at his club. It won’t be easy, being Bayern, but it’s an option.

Lewandowski joined Bayern in 2014 from Borussia Dortmund and has won the Bundesliga every year since then as well as the Champions League in 2020.

The 33-year-old scored 312 goals in 384 career Bundesliga games, including breaking Bayern legend Gerd Muller’s 39-year record for goals in a calendar season in 2021.
