Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona is getting closer:
FC Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic appeared to leave open the idea of leaving Lewandowski at a reasonable price when interviewing Sky in Germany on Thursday. When asked to indicate the possibility of the player remaining as a percentage, he replied: “So far it’s 100 percent.”
When asked if the Poland international could leave for enough money, Salihamidzic smiled and replied: “I don’t know. No, as I said, I never deal with current affairs. Lewandowski was expected to return as planned.” he continued.
Oliver Kahn, CEO of FC Bayern, and Lewandowski’s advisor Pini Zahavi met with Salihamidzic on Mallorca last week. Lewandowski could be reintegrated into the club, according to Salihamidzic, who described it as a “beautiful dialogue” with each side laying out their positions. It can be fixed, he replied.
The tone of Salihamidzic’s remarks has changed from Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer over the past month. According to Hainer, Robert’s contract runs until 2023. He will only play with us for that long.
