Bayern Munich is currently one of the inform teams in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League. The situation in the ground is going so well for the Bavarians. But off the ground, they might have hit the wall when talking about the situation of their two important players – Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski.
According to the reported rumours, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are ready to take advantage of Serge Gnabry’s contract situation, as talks with Bayern Munich over an extension stall.
The 26-year-old will enter the final year of his contract in the summer, but despite the Bundesliga side being keen to extend his stay at the Allianz Arena. Bayern are struggling to agree to personal terms, with reports that the winger and club are some ways off in negotiations over an improved salary.
Just over 10 months remain before Gnabry can be officially approached by a team in Europe, and that has seen the two Premier League sides begin to circle in a bid to force Munich’s hand. If a deal isn’t reached by the end of the campaign, they may be resigned to letting him go for a low price to avoid losing him on a free transfer.
The chances of Lewandowski leaving Bayern Munich in the summer is getting high as there are rumours that the club will not offer a new deal in at the end of this season. He will not stay at the club if they are not providing him with a new, improved contract.
Talks are yet to begin as the 33-year-old striker looks to sign a new long-term contract with the winners of nine-straight Bundesliga titles, but he is starting to lose patience as the clock runs down on a deal that expires in 2023.
The report says that he is ready to leave immediately if a solution has not been reached by the time the summer transfer window opens, with the hierarchy at the Allianz Arena yet to initiate talks with Lewandowski’s representatives.
The Poland international has remained in impressive form this season, scoring 43 goals in 36 games to take his tally to a staggering 232 in all since joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. He was previously linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent windows, and a Manchester United side desperately in need of a striker have also been named as a possible destination.
