Robert Lewandowski has reiterated his desire to depart Bayern Munich in the summer amidst interest from LaLiga Santander giants Barcelona.
The Poland international believes that his potential move could be beneficial for both himself and the club, who will be able to cash in on their star.
“I still have a year left on my contract, that’s why I’ve asked the club for the go-ahead for a transfer,” Lewandowski told Bild.
“I think that in the current situation it’s the best solution, especially as the club can still receive money from a transfer.
“I don’t want to force anything, it’s not about that. It’s about finding the best solution. We need to cool down, I want to talk calmly and not through the media.
“I hope the fans will understand me one day.”
It should be noted that in recent weeks both parties have been sending messages to each other through the press.
The striker has remained adamant about his intention to leave this summer, but Bayern Munich do not appear to be willing to let him to do so.
However, the tension between the two parties has been relieved after a meeting between sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and Lewandowski a few days ago.
