Robert Lewandowski’s agent has revealed that the Poland international has informed Bayern Munich of his desire to leave the club.
The 29-year-old has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and appointed Pini Zahavi as his agent earlier this year amid rumours he could leave the Bundesliga.
Zahavi was responsible for brokering Neymar’s €222 million transfer from Barcelona to PSG last summer, and his appointment was seen as Lewandowski attempting to orchestrate a mega-money move of his own.
Earlier this month chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge urged fans not to be concerned with the possibility of the striker leaving as he is under contract at the Allianz Arena until 2021.
“They do not have to worry about Robert Lewandowski and the relationship with Bayern,” Rummenigge told Kicker. “We have a very good one.
“We know what we have in Robert Lewandowski. I am very happy that we still have such a long-term contract. [There’s] no need to worry – he will also play next season at Bayern Munich.”
