Does that mean Lewandowski hasn’t given up on a move or ... ?

This just in from Sky, it appears that Robert Lewandowski has extended his contract with super-agent Pini Zahavi until 2020. In case you’ve never heard of him, Zahavi is the man who orchestrated Neymar’s 222m Euro transfer from Barcelona last summer. He was originally hired in order to secure a move for his client to Real Madrid, but apparently failed due to opposition from Bayern Munich’s board.

Now, even though Lewandowski is almost certainly going to stay in Munich, the Polish international has chosen to keep his agent around. Zahavi’s contract was set to run out on August 31st, but now it looks like he’s going to still around 2020 at the least.

What this means at present is not clear. Does Lewandowski still want to move away from Bayern, or are there other reasons he kept Zahavi around? After all, agents handle a lot more than just transfers — they play a part in business-side of things as well. Lewandowski has repeatedly said that he wants his “brand” to grow. Perhaps keeping Zahavi is a means to that end.

Whatever it is, there’s no need for Bayern Munich fans to worry just yet. Robert Lewandowski is going nowhere ... yet.
