Sky Germany confirm that Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich is on the radar of several top European clubs for the summer transfer market.
Bayern Munich have reportedly come to an agreement with Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig to take over Hansi Flick’s role next season. The 2019/20 European champions have signed the 33-year-old manager on a five-year contract from next season onwards after agreeing to pay 25 million euros to Leipzig to terminate his contract.
Nagelsmann’s appointment has already sparked a feeling of excitement amongst the Bavarian faithful. However, the celebrations could be cut short as Sky Germany reports that Robert Lewandowski is on the radar of several top European clubs. This certainly does not come as good news from the German giants as Lewandowski has been their standout performer for the past couple of years.
There has been no mention of a specific club, however, the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid have been linked with the Polish striker on a few occasions in the past. The three aforementioned clubs are also in desperate need of a striker making Lewandowski the ideal candidate to target.
The 32-year-old striker is still continuing to perform at an impeccable level despite his age. Lewandowski has 43 goals in all competitions this season and is on course to winning the Golden Boot as well. In the Bundesliga, the Poland international has scored a stunning 36 goals in just 26 games this season, averaging a goal every 61 minutes.
It is quite evident that the German league is no longer a challenge for Robert Lewandowski and at the age of 32, a new challenge could be on the cards. The former Borussia Dortmund striker has won it all in Germany and in Europe after winning the UEFA Champions League with Bayern last season.
A possible move to a new league could bring in a fresh change and challenge for the 32-year-old striker. Lewandowski as of now is on course to winning his ninth Bundesliga title along with the European golden boot.
Should Robert Lewandoski consider leaving Bayern Munich next season? And will Bayern consider the factor of cashing in on the 32-year-old this summer rather than waiting until 2023 when he turns 34 and his contract expires?
