It's seething at Bayern.
Robert Lewandowski and his future.
Hasan Salihamidžić now sharply attacks his advisor Pini Zahavi.
Munich – While the sun is shining in Munich and the Bavarian state capital is experiencing the first moments of summer, dark storm clouds are gathering on Säbener Straße near FC Bayern.
The reason: the future of superstar Robert Lewandowski.
The Pole does not want to extend his contract with Bayern, which expires in 2023 - and would prefer to switch to FC Barcelona immediately.
Of course, the German record champions don't want that.
So trouble is inevitable.
Sports director Hasan Salihamidžić has now sharply criticized Lewy's advisor in the Sport1 double pass.
"He's had an adviser who's been driving his head all year.
It's just not clean," Brazzo said on Sunday morning about Pini Zahavi, whom honorary president Uli Hoeneß once called "piranha".
Name: Robert Lewandowski
Age: August 21, 1988 (age 33), Warsaw, Poland
Club: FC Bayern (contract until 2023)
Market value: 50 million euros
FC Bayern: powder keg!
Brazzo attacks Lewy advisor - "It's just not clean"
Salihamidzic also opposed reports that the Munich offer to extend Lewandowski's contract was not specific enough.
"It's very clear that he got an offer with duration and amount on the way," he said of talks with Zahavi to extend Lewandowski's working paper beyond 2023.
"I can't say what he said to the player," added Salihamidzic, adding that he was "surprised" by the player's agent's behavior.
Unlike Zahavi, he would "never" "publicize" details from contract talks.
Robert Lewandowski's future at FC Bayern is in the stars.
The Pole wants to leave the club - immediately.

FC Bayern is planning a total upheaval - the first talks have already been held
Cash rain for FC Bayern?
Barcelona will probably dig much deeper into their pockets for Lewandowski
FC Barcelona recently confirmed that they were dealing with a Lewy commitment.
Barca coach Xavi said: "It is possible that he will come." An offer is said to have already fluttered in on Säbener Straße.
Brazzo didn't want to confirm that in a one-two and repeated Bayern's position: "One thing is clear: Lewa has a contract until the summer of next year - and he will fulfill it."
For the record champions, the 33-year-old is “the most important player that many clubs in Europe would like to have.
We have the greatest appreciation for Lewa.
FC Bayern have always behaved correctly towards him".
The discussion about Lewandowski's future is not expected to end any time soon.
Salihamidžić is also expecting a long summer.
"The fact is that the transfer period is until August 31," says Brazzo: "But we have a clear path and we have also shown it."
Meanwhile, there is initial speculation about Lewandowski's possible successors at Bayern.
A few names are mentioned.
For example Darwin Nunez from Benfica Lisbon.
