Bayern Munich are growing impatient with Robert Lewandowski’s contract situation and could sell him in the summer if an extension hasn’t been signed by then.

Lewandowski’s current deal with the Bundesliga giants doesn’t expire until the summer of 2023.

But SportBILD report that the club are so desperate to avoid starting next season with their star player’s future unresolved, they could put him on the market this summer if an agreement can’t be reached.

The 33-year-old has reportedly not held concrete talks about an extension so far, with Bayern yet to decide whether to offer him a deal until 2024 or 2025. If it were the latter, the Polish international would reportedly have to accept a reduction to his current salary, which is estimated to be in the region of €24m-per-year.

If a deal can’t be agreed, it seems Bayern could prefer to sell Lewandowski this summer than risk losing him on a free transfer in 2023.

And perhaps most interestingly of all, SportBILD suggest that if they can’t agree an extension, they would look to replace him with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Lewandowski, for his part, seemed relaxed when asked about his future after picking up The Best Men’s Player of the Year award on Monday night.

“It’s not like my contract expires in the summer,” he said.

“I need to stay calm and don’t want to stress myself out. There is still plenty of time.”
