Something died inside of me' – Wantaway Lewandowski warns Bayern they will attract NO stars after treatment of him | The Sun
RAGING Robert Lewandowski claims 'something has died' inside of him as he warned Bayern they won't attract top stars unless they let him leave.
The Barcelona target insists the German champions owe him more 'loyalty and respect' for his eight years of sensational service.
Bayern have so far rejected Lewandowski's transfer request, despite pursuing Liverpool's Sadio Mane as a potential replacement.
And the Poland legend, 33, believes other world-class players will be deterred from joining Bayern because of how they've treated him.
The ten-time Bundesliga winner told Sport Onet: "I just want to leave Bayern. Loyalty and respect are more important than the work.
"They didn't want to listen to me until the end. Something died inside me and it's impossible to get over that.

"Even if you want to be professional, you can't make up for it.
"No other offers were even considered by me other than that of Barcelona. I want to leave Bayern, that’s clear."
But despite rebuking Lewandowski for publicly pleading to go, the Bundesliga giants have reportedly upped a bid for Senegal frontman Mane to £30m.
It's understood they initially offered £21m plus £4.6m if they won the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski says he still wants a harmonious exit from Bayern.
He said: "During so many years at the club I was always ready, available, despite injuries and the pain, I gave my best.
"I think the best thing to do is to find a good solution for both sides.
"And not to look for a one-sided decision… that makes no sense, not after so much time, after such a successful era and with my will and support."
