Robert Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern Munich, according to 74-year-old agent Pini Zahavi.
PSG are reportedly the front runners to secure the signature of the Bayern Munich Pole, Robert Lewandowski, who prepares with Poland for their first World Cup since 2006.
After making the switch from Borussia Dortmund to German champions Bayern in 2014, he has managed 106 goals in 126 appearances.
An incredible five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg two seasons ago still remains the most astounding of his memories, and it is a Bundesliga moment that will go down in history.
While his focus currently remains on international football the speculation about his next destination should only increase from here.
His agent told German website Bild:
“Robert feels as if he needs a new change and a challenge in his career. The Bayern hierarchy have been informed. Robert’s motives are not money or a specific club, almost all the clubs would like to have the best striker in the world in their ranks.”- Zahavi
Bild also suggests that Zahavi has already been in contact with three clubs.
PSG already have the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani. But manager Thomas Tuchel knows Lewandowski all too well from his Dortmund days, and acquiring a striker, once a bitter rival, would propel the Parisians closer to world class status.
Premier League arch-enemies Manchester United and Manchester City will surely catch wind of the Pole’s availability, and a move to England shouldn’t be ruled out straight away.
Bayern, who begin their first term under Niko Kovac in August, might have to start looking for a replacement for a forward that has served them consistently over the years.
How much of an impact do you think Robert Lewndowski’s departure will have on Bayern Muncih, if any?
