Robert Lewandowski has said he will not renew his contract at Bayern Munich.
The 33-year-old striker, who has been linked with a summer move to Barcelona, still has another year left to run on his current deal.
However, Lewandowski has hinted at an early exit by saying he hopes he can find “the right solution” with Bayern Munich.
Lewandowski, speaking after scoring in Bayern Munich’s last game of the season — a 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg, told Sky Germany: “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.”
Sporting director Salihamidzic had previously confirmed Lewandowski’s desire to leave the club but said the Pole must see out his contract.
“I spoke with Lewa. In that discussion he informed me that he does not want to accept our offer to extend the contract and that we would like to leave the club,” Salihamidzic told Sky Germany.
“He said he wants to do something else. But our position has not changed. The fact is he has a contract to June 30, 2023.”
Lewandowski has scored 344 goals in 375 games since swapping Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich in 2014.
He has won eight league titles, the Champions League and three German Cups at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga for a 10th straight year this season.
