Robert Lewandowski has reportedly grown tired of his surroundings at Germany and is suggested to be leaving the club over the next window for a new challenge in his career by The Independent. The Polish striker has won everything there is to win as a Bundesliga player with his two spells across the German powerhouses Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. He has been the top scorer in the league for the majority of those seasons and has multiple Golden Boot awards from this period.
This comes at a time when Pep Guardiola is leaving Bayern Munich for the same reasons and makes for a grim viewing for the club as they might have wanted to hold on the their stars for Ancelloti who is coming in over the summer.
Meanwhile, over at the Premier League, this news is being treated with cautious optimism amongst the bigger clubs like Chelsea and the Manchester duo as they would certainly be waiting in line to convince Robert and his agent that his future lies at their respective stadiums. Along with these clubs, there are superpowers like PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona looking to stake a claim in the contest as the deadliest striker in Europe will expectedly be in unreasonably high demand over the summer.
The fee will be set at 70 million euros on the very least by the Munich club as they would want the highest possible compensation for the striker. The fact that they don’t really have a reason to sell him along with his elite performances might drive the price higher for the Polish international. While the fee would be easily matched by all the clubs in question, the striker’s preference will be dependent on what these clubs manage to offer him for next season and Champion’s League would be an absolute necessity. This would pile up the pressure on Chelsea and Manchester United as they look to be faltering in their chase for UCL this season.
