Robert Lewandowski’s future turned soap opera this summer, and many are still unsure about what the future holds for the Bayern Munich forward.
With Barcelona battling for pole ahead of the new season, the Catalan has had little luck negotiating a deal with the Bayern, who are demanding a hefty fee of around €50m.
Lewandowski’s story frustrated both fans, but things took a terrifying turn as the player’s family became the target of many violent German fans.
Such has been reported by Germany’s local news station NTV, where Lewandowski’s family has received violent attacks, including death threats, from various fans across Germany in light of his desire to leave Bavaria. This suggests that a message is received.
Lewandowski had previously been criticized for his strong public statements to Bayern over his treatment at the club. His comments were not well received by Bayern supporters, and even top officials expressed their displeasure.
Lewandowski has not publicly acknowledged reports of such death threats, but reportedly left his wife, Anna Lewandowska, and two daughters at a villa in Mallorca.
The Polish international appears to be waiting for the storm to pass and Barcelona to make another offer to secure a move from the Allianz Arena.
However, Lewandowski has vowed to remain professional until the transfer story is over. He was pictured outside a Munich hospital today to begin preparations for Bayern’s pre-season.
With hostile football fans expressing dissatisfaction, Lewandowski is keen to put an end to his transfer saga, hopefully securing a move to Barcelona in the near future and continuing the club’s pre-season tour. We plan to allow you to participate in .
