At FC Bayern, the era with the most goals for strikers since Gerd Müller ends.
By 2023 at the latest, Robert Lewandowski will leave the club after nine years – this is putting brutal pressure on the new management duo, Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic.
So far they have not been able to even halfway replace the Alaba loss. On the contrary: With Sül, a national player is going to BVB of all places for free. 50 goals this season, which Lewandowski last guaranteed, are another caliber.
First, the bosses must answer the difficult question of whether to sell him immediately or wait until 2023 (possibly against his will) to let him go on a free transfer. Either way, they need top-flight replacements. Now that the whole football world knows they are under pressure, prices will certainly not go down…
In 2023, not only the contract of the super striker expires, but also that of the sports director Salihamidzic.
The handling of the Lewandowski case thus also has a major impact on its future.
The fact is: It would be much easier to find a successor for Salihamidzic (e.g. Max Eberl) than for Lewandowski.
