Robert Lewandowski has delayed a groin operation until the winter break, according to both Kicker and Sport1.
The 31-year-old was considering going through the surgery during the current international break, but he has now decided to postpone the procedure.
Instead, Lewandowski wants to go under the knife immediately after the start of the winter break on December 21. The striker is expected to be sidelined for around 14 days afterwards.
"Robert has problems, but no pain. He will need to do something about it at some point," Bayern interim coach Hansi Flick told reporters last week and added:
"He will have to consider it thoroughly, because it wouldn't be good to interrupt his current run. We have to make sure that he misses as few games as possible. But it's his decision, and we have to respect that."
Lewandowski has been in outstanding form for Bayern this season, scoring 23 goals in 18 appearances so far.
