Robert Lewandowski has begged Bayern Munich to “find a good solution for both sides” as he looked to force his exit from the club.

Barcelona are thought to have agreed terms with the Polish international, who has also been on the radar of Chelsea and Manchester United.

And Lewandowski has made clear his desire to leave Bayern several times, but the Bundesliga club are so far adamant that he will remain until his contract expires next summer.

The 33-year-old has again spoken out, asking for his club’s “loyalty and respect”.

Talking to Onet Sport, Lewandowksi said: “I just want to leave Bayern. Loyalty and respect are more important than the work. The best thing to do is find a solution together. They didn’t want to listen to me until the end. Something died inside me – and it’s impossible to get over that. Even if you want to be professional, you can’t make up for it.

“During so many years at the club I was always ready, available, despite injuries and the pain, I gave my best. I think the best thing to do is to find a good solution for both sides. And not to look for a one-sided decision.

“I’m not looking for a unilateral solution, that makes no sense, not after so much time, after such a successful era and with my will and support.

“What kind of player will want to go to Bayern knowing that something like this could happen to them? Where are the loyalty and respect then? I was always been ready, I spent eight nice years here, I met wonderful people and I would like it to stay that way in my mind.”

Bayern president Herberet Hainer laid down the law when he reminded the striker that he has a contract to honour.

“We have always said that Robert Lewandowski has a contract with Bayern until June 30, 2023. And a contract is a contract!.” Hainer said to Blid. “Where are we going if a player can terminate a contract early when we as a club would have to pay him in full until the last day of the agreement? That’s not right, it can’t be like that.

“I’m a bit surprised that Robert decided to go public, I wouldn’t have done it if I were him. He’s been with Bayern for a long time, he’s won a lot of titles with us. I think he knows very well what he has at Bayern, that is, a club that treats its players very well, that does everything it can to make them perform at their best.”
