ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI is accused of taking a pay cut to stay at Bayern Munich just days after winning Fifa’s Men’s Player of the Year award.
The 33-year-old has lured Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah won honorable honor.
No player has scored more than the Poland international’s 69 goals in 2021.
And the former Borussia Dortmund ace, who has kept his award since last year, has continued to be in terrible form this season, scoring 34 goals in 27 games.
However, the striker has entered the final 18 months of £369,000-a-week contract with Bundesliga giants.
Bayern have been linked with a move to Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
And Marca announced that they had informed Lewandowski that they would only agree to a two-year extension if he agreed to a pay cut.
The club usually only implements a 12-month extension for players over the age of 30.

But they are willing to do the opposite of that to keep the title – if he accepts the cut.
Haaland is expected to leave Dortmund in the summer when his £64m release clause comes into effect.
The Norwegian has a host of Premier League and European heavyweights chasing his service.
And Bayern will be one of the leaders in the chase should they decide to buy Lewandowski if he does not sign an extension.
