Bayern Munich struggling to find a replacement should Robert Lewandowski leave

According to Kicker’s Georg Holzner, Bayern Munich are struggling to find a replacement should Robert Lewandowski leave this summer as the record Bundesliga champions search the market for a successor to the 33-year-old, who wants to join Barcelona.

It was reported last week that Atlético Madrid and Spain forward Álvaro Morata was offered to Bayern Munich. However, the 29-year-old is not considered an option by Bayern Munich, who see no like-for-like replacement for Lewandowski on the current market after being linked with Sébastien Haller, who has since joined Borussia Dortmund and Stuttgart’s Saša Kalajdžić – a player whom Bayern bosses aren’t convinced by.

A player Bayern did considered, albeit briefly, was João Félix (22). Atlético sporting director Andrea Berta gave an immediate ‘no’ to Bayern’s request and an offer of €80m wouldn’t have changed his stance considering the Spanish club’s purchase of the Portuguese forward for over €120m in 2019.

The Lewandowski transfer saga continues as the player turned up six minutes late to the meeting point at Bayern Munich’s Säbener Straße this morning before training.
