The field of bidders for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski could be shrinking.

Pini Zahavi has been working his back channels all summer to drum up interest for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

Among the teams that have allegedly pledged to open their respective vaults for the Polish Hitman are Chelsea FC, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester United, and...Manchester City.

We might soon to be able to cross Pep Guardiola’s club from that list, however. Per multiple reports out of England, Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane is sitting out because he believes he has a “gentleman’s agreement” to leave the club this summer:

One reason that some feel Kane is missing is because Manchester City is ready to pony up a large bid to Tottenham Hotspur — and subsequently make Kane an even richer man:

If Manchester City does follow through on its pursuit of Kane, Zahavi’s planned bidding war might take a small hit.

Obviously, with a contract set to expire in 2023, Bayern Munich is not selling Lewandowski this summer. Next year, however, the topic seems to be open if the two parties cannot agree on an contract extension.
