Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern

Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski, has told the club he wants to leave this summer, his agent Pini Zahavi has said.

In late February, the Poland global parted ways with his previous agent of 10 years, Cezary Kucharski, and signed up with Zahavi, one of the most powerful agents in world football.

Zahavi, the Israeli agent who helped facilitate Neymar's transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain past year, said Lewandowski's reasons "are not money or a specific club, as almost all top clubs would like to have the world's best striker in their ranks".

"Money or a specific club are not Robert's motivation for a move, as nearly every top club would like to have the best striker in the world in their ranks". The striker might be 29 but he has scored more than 40 goals in each of the last three seasons and has picked up the Bundesliga title with Bayern for four years in a row.

"We have to be prepared to take advantage of the loopholes that will appear when the rival team will be more focused on me", added Lewandowski, whose manager stirred up transfer rumours this week saying the Bayern star wanted to leave the club, where his contract ends in 2021, for a "new challenge".

With Bayern and new coach Niko Kovac potentially looking at a squad overhaul over the course of the summer, they could well see this as the opportunity time to let a want-away player like Lewandowski go for big money to fund new additions.
