According to his former advisor, Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern also wants to switch to FC Barcelona to show that he is better than Benzema.
Cezary Kucharski told the Spanish radio station “Cadena Ser”. Frenchman Karim Benzema is under contract with Barça’s archrival, Spanish record-breaking champions Real Madrid. With Real, he was Spanish champion several times and won the Champions League five times.
Because of his strong previous season, Benzema is considered one of the favorites when it comes to choosing the next world soccer player. Lewandowski recently won this title twice.
Farewell to FC Bayern? That’s what Kucharski says
Kucharski emphasized that FC Barcelona and Lewandowski would do everything to make the change perfect.
“I think he will sign for Barcelona, I think that’s possible,” said the ex-agent. “But he has to put pressure on Bayern to release him from the contract,” he warned. The FC Bayern leadership knew that Lewandowski wanted to go to Spain. “His plan was Germany, then Spain and then the United States at the end of his career,” said Kucharski.
Lewandowski’s intention to change has been causing a stir for weeks. Apparently he sees no future in Munich. However, his contract runs until June 30, 2023.
Those responsible for the club in Munich, such as CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hassan Salihamidzic, had ruled out a transfer several times.
