Robert Lewandowski has been linked with several clubs during the recent summer transfer window. The latest club to join the race for the Polish international is Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Frustrated with missing out on signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, the Premier League side is now reportedly focusing on bringing the Ballon D’Or candidate to Etihad.
According to the player’s agent Pini Zahavi, Manchester City could be considered a “possible destination” for Lewandowski — whose contract with Bayern Munich runs until 2023. The optimism of the Manchester side is supposedly growing thanks to what looked like a subtle thumbs-up from Zahavi. (via Daily Mail)
However, the striker had mentioned several times in the past few months that he is currently not thinking about a move out of Germany. In an interview given in March, the striker had stated that he “could imagine ending his career in Munich.” Most recently, after the Golden Shoe ceremony, he had once again affirmed his decision while talking about the rumors that linked him with Real Madrid.
“I don’t have to prove myself in another league. In the Champions League, I can compete with the best from other leagues. [At the moment] I am 100 percent focused on Bayern Munich, I don’t think about anything other than my team.” – Robert Lewandowski (21st September 2021)
It’s too quick to have a change of mind for the player given that he’s only getting better game after game at Bayern. And, well, we know how agents are! It’s likely that City will try their best to sign him so the real question here is, will they be successful in luring Lewandowski into their oil rig?
