Will Robert Lewandowski still enjoy hearing Sadio Mané’s debut serenade? There is an exciting week ahead of the world footballer and FC Bayern.
At the FC Bayern team presentation in the Allianz Arena, Robert Lewandowski will soon be able to experience first-hand how the Munich fans find the world footballer’s wish to change. If he is there at all and not already at FC Barcelona.
An exciting week lies ahead of the club and of the 33-year-old, who, with his many holiday photos from abroad, does not give the impression that he would like to return to Germany, his adopted home of many years.
More Bayern stars about to start training
At the weekend, Lewandowski smiled alongside stars like ex-top model Heidi Klum or American football star Russell Wilson at the event of an Italian luxury fashion label before returning to Munich. The super striker is expected there on Tuesday on Säbener Straße, as well as national players like Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller who are under a lot of strain. Four days later there will be a public session in the Munich Arena, where the newcomers Sadio Mané, Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui will appear in front of a large crowd of fans for the first time.
“I’ve already played in this big stadium. Now we want to achieve our goals with the support of the fans behind us,” said Mané, who was loudly cheered by the few supporters behind the fence on Friday afternoon during his first training session on the club premises. “It was very good. I enjoyed it, and the other guys liked it too,” said the 30-year-old Senegalese. He has not yet thought of a specific song for the obligatory serenade at the debut. “But I have a few in the repertoire,” joked Mané, who wants to show himself as a “great singer in front of the boys”.
The transfer carousel at FCB keeps turning
The offensive star was signed by Liverpool FC for over 30 million euros, Gravenberch cost 18.5 million euros. The poker around central defender Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus Turin remains hot. According to “Tuttosport”, Bavaria should be ready to increase its offer: recently there was talk of 75 million euros that Munich would pay. Neither Bayern nor Juventus have commented on the reports so far.
In return, Bayern were able to generate additional income at the weekend. After around twelve million euros for Marc Roca (Leeds United), Munich made the move to Nottingham Forest from left-back Omar Richards, who was brought on a free transfer a year ago, perfect. According to the media, the substitute player should bring in between 8 and 10 million euros.
At Lewandowski, the “Basta” statement by CEO Oliver Kahn still applies, from which he could possibly move away from a Barcelona offer of more than 50 million euros. According to “Kicker” information, no new offer from the Catalans for the world footballer who was willing to change had arrived in Munich by Sunday morning. The Pole’s contract in Munich runs until June 30, 2023, but he wants to go to Spain as soon as possible. Whether Lewandowski will actually take part in Bayern’s US tour in a week seems completely open at the moment.
