I don’t see a big difference in the approach of Barcelona and Lewandowski to what Bayern did with me [Sadio] Mane ran and now with me [Matthijs] de Ligt could run: The interested club and player will find a solution, that will be clearly communicated. And then the clubs will find a solution,” Matthäus continued.
