Robert Lewandowski reached 50 goals for the season on the final day of Bayern Munich’s campaign, as it emerged he wants to leave the club.

The Polish striker headed Thomas Muller’s smart cross from the left past Koen Casteels for Bayern’s second goal of the game against Wolfsburg, helping the visitors to a 2-1 half-time lead.

It took Lewandowski to 25 goals in 22 Bundesliga games versus Wolfsburg, including his only five-goal haul in the top-flight.

In Bundesliga history, only Gerd Muller has scored more goals against a single opponent, having hit 27 against Hamburg.

Lewandowski took his Bundesliga tally for 2021-22 to 35, while he has also scored 13 times in the Champions League and twice in the German Super Cup.

Before kick-off, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic announced 33-year-old Lewandowski has told him he wants to leave the club and has refused a new contract.

Lewandowski is the top scorer among all players from Europe’s top five leagues this season, moving six goals ahead of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema after his first-half goal at Wolfsburg.
