Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has yet to hear anything from the club regarding negotiations for a new contract.
Lewandowski scored for the 27th time against former club Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, as Bayern’s 3-1 victory in the Der Klassiker ensured that the Bundesliga title was theirs for the 10th campaign in a row.
It is a record across Europe’s top five leagues where no side has ever achieved 10 titles in a row. In fact, Bayern shared the previous record with Juventus (nine).
However, Lewandowski is about to enter the final year of his contract with Bayern, which he joined from Dortmund on a free transfer in 2014.
Speculation has risen that the 33-year-old may very well move forward ahead of next season, with Barcelona being linked.
And the Polish striker confirmed that he has not yet been told whether negotiations on a new agreement are progressing.
“I read what was in the media, but I have not heard anything from the club,” Lewandowski told Sky Sport.
“There will be a meeting soon, but I also do not know what will happen.
“I also see what’s going on, it’s not that easy for me.”
Lewandowski has scored 33 goals in the Bundesliga so far this season, 12 more than any other player, and Julian Nagelsmann would certainly be against losing such a crucial player.
However, the Bayern boss – who has now won his first league title as coach – trusts the club to make the right decision.
He told Sky Sport: “I trust the work of [sporting director] Hassan [Salihamidzic] and Oliver [Kahn]. Today he played very well again. He secured many balls and was extremely strong in tackles.
“There’s not much to say about him. It goes without saying when you look at the statistics how important he is to Bayern Munich.”
