Robert Lewandowski is considering not to return to training at Bayern Munich, and could go on strike to get his Barcelona move, according to his former agent.
The Poland forward desires to be in a new environment after eight successful years at the Allianz Arena, and has publicly declared his wish to leave Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern.
Bayern Munich’s season begins on July 12, and it is believed the forward will not show up as he is prepared to go on strike according to his former agent Maik Barthel.
‘I trust Robert not to show up for training…’
‘It was already considered that he would not appear for training,’ Barthel revealed, although he did play out that season before moving to Bayern the following year.
Barthel told SportBild that the striker used the trick to leave Borussia Dortmund back in 2013.
However, Bayern Honorary President Uli Hoeness, when asked about the potential strike, said: ‘I don’t think about that at all. He has a contract, and we are a constitutional state. We have decided that we will not let him go. Unless we could have found a replacement halfway.’
