Polish striker Robert Lewandowski has informed Bundesliga power house Bayern Munich of his desire to leave the club according to the player’s agent.
Top clubs like Manchester United, PSG, Real Madrid and Manchester City are all interested in the services of the prolific forward, but no offer has been tabled.
Lewandowski, 29, is under a contract with the Bundesliga Champions till 2021. However, new agent Pini Zahavi revealed the striker wants a fresh challenge.
In a recent interview granted to a German newspaper, Zahavi said: “Robert feels he needs a change and a new challenge in his career. The managers of Bayern know about it.”
The Polish “nuke” has scored a staggering 151 goals in 195 games since he made the switch from Bundesliga rivals Dortmund in 2014. He has topped the scoring charts in the League twice in last three seasons.
The taste for Champions League glory has been rumoured as the likely reason for his exit. The success in the League has not matched the challenge in Europe, with the Bavarian giants exiting the competition at the semi-final stage thrice in four seasons.
On the other hand, Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has debunked the rumours about the player’s departure, insisting he will be in the Club next season.
“They do not have to worry about Robert Lewandowski and the relationship with Bayern,” Rummenigge told Kicker. “We have a very good one.
