Agent Reveals Lewandowski Wishes New Challenge

The 29-year-old forward has been linked with many transfers away from the Bundesliga and might finally see a change in fortune as he forces the club for the transfer.

Football news: Robert feels that he needs a change and a new challenge, says agent Zahavi

Robert Lewandowski’s new agent has revealed to the media that the striker from Poland has informed his present club of his desire to find new pastures.

Robert had previously appointed Pini Zahavi as his agent. Zahavi was responsible for Neymar’s €222 million (£193m, $234m) move from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, which means that the Poland striker is himself looking for a mega-money move.

Bayern had already denied any sort of approach from Real Madrid. But there are other clubs in the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG, who are also linked to the striker.

Lewandowski had led Bayern to league title earlier this year as he became Bundesliga’s top scorer for the third time in five seasons. In total he has 180 goals in Germany’s top division along with winning the league title six times.

Zahavi feels that Robert has won everything he could have with Bayern and should now seek new challenge. Bayern were eventually knocked out from the Champions League semi-finals by the eventual champions Real Madrid.

Zahavi told Sport Bild, "Robert feels he needs a change and a new challenge in his career. The managers of Bayern know about it."

Despite all the transfer speculation, the Bayern management had thought that Lewandowski would stay put at the club after the World Cup under the new head coach Niko Kovac, who took charge for the 2018-19 season.

In May, Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had tola the fans that Robert would not leave the club as he has a 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."
