Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City all have offers on the table for a prolific striker who wants a new challenge this summer, while the Red Devils have made a cheeky bid to land a new right-back – both in Friday’s Euro Paper Talk.
PREM TRIO ON LEWANDOWSKI ALERT
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski reportedly has offers on the table from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and PSG, and is open to a summer switch.
The Poland star has two more years on his Bayern contract but has been linked to other clubs following an incredible campaign for the Bundesliga champions.
The 32-year-old striker netted 41 league goals to break Gerd Muller’s Bundesliga record, which had stood for 49 years.
Lewandowski is widely considered as Europe’s elite marksman, ahead of Tottenham forward Harry Kane, and it comes as no surprise that a number of clubs are ready to make their move.
The frontman is currently away with Poland for the Euros, but his agent Pini Zahavi is expected to be busy in the coming weeks.
According to AS, as cited by the Daily Express, Lewandowski is ‘open to the possibility of changing of scene and facing new challenges’ this summer.
The report adds that Bayern are ‘very reluctant’ to lose their main man, but that Lewandowski already ‘has offers from several top teams’.
AS claims that PSG, United, City and Chelsea have already made an initial approach, while Real Madrid are also keen.
Real came close to signing Lewandowski in 2014 when he joined Bayern from Borussia Dortmund, He is currently the favourite target of Los Blancos president Florentino Perez.
Finally, the report adds that while Bayern may be able to resist offers this summer, 2022 will be a different story, as Lewandowski would be entering the final year of his contract.
