Hainer won't break Bayern Munich contract policy for Barcelona target Lewandowski

Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer says they won't budge on their contract policy for Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski wants to move to Barcelona after being unimpressed by Bayern's latest contract offer - including the length of deal tabled.

Hainer told Tz: "Why don't we offer long-term contracts to players over 30? Because it would block money for a long time, which we could not invest in young players.

"On the other hand, we also want to be fair to our veteran players and say, 'Extend for a year, and hopefully we'll talk again'.

"We also need flexibility."

The Pole, 33, will see his contract with Bayern Munich expire in June 2023.
