Man Utd, Chelsea alerted as agent claims £95m Bayern star wants exit

Date published: Wednesday 30th May 2018 9:00

Robert Lewandowski’s agent has alerted some of Europe’s elite clubs by admitting his client wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer.

Lewandowski joined Bayern in summer 2014 on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

The Poland international has scored 151 goals in 195 games for the Bavarians, winning four Bundesliga titles, one DFB-Pokal and two DFL-Supercups.

But the 29-year-old “needs a change,” according to agent Pini Zahavi.

“Robert feels he needs a change and a new challenge in his career,” Zahavi told Sport Bild.

“The managers of Bayern know about it.”

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be monitoring the situation, while Premier League clubs are likely to be interested too.

Manchester United have been linked, while Chelsea are also long-time admirers.

Earlier in the year, a study from the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES) Football Observatory placed Lewandowski’s value at €107m (£95m), despite him being 29.
