Lewandowski’s deal has one year left to run and expires in June 2023 – the German giants risk losing him for nothing if they don’t sell this summer.

Lewandowski said: “I can confirm that I spoke to Hasan [Salihamidzic] and informed him that the decision was made and that I am not extending my contract with Bayern.

“Both sides have to think about the future. It’s best if we find the best solution for both sides.

“I said to Salihamidzic that if an offer comes, then we have to think about it — also for the club. Both sides have to think about the future. That’s all I can say.”

Lewandowski is Bayern’s second-highest scorer ever with 344 goals in 375 since joining from rivals Borussia Dortmund in 2014.

He has won eight Bundesliga titles, the Champions League, three German Cups and the Club World Cup.

According to The Times, Barca have agreed a three-year deal with Lewandowski and believe they can sign him for a fee between £25million and £35m.

Amid links to the 33-year-old, Barca boss Xavi was recently asked if he would be willing to recruit veterans this summer

He replied: “It’s not age, it’s performance. Players take care of themselves so much and every year they are more professional.

“Ibrahimovic, Modric, Dani Alves, they all have a very high performance at important clubs.

“Cristiano and Messi too. Age is not a priority. If it improves us, that’s the important thing.”

Lewandowski has also been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Chelsea and Manchester United have been known to admire the Pole in the past.
