Bayern Munich are reportedly willing to get rid of four of their first-team stars - and wantaway striker Robert Lewandowski is not one of them.
The 29-year old has just won his fourth consecutive Bundesliga title with the Bavarians but according to his agent, he is not satisfied with things and feels a change of scenery is needed.
Pini Zahavi has revealed how his client is seeking a summer swap, and also claims the club are aware of his decision.
"Robert feels he needs a change and a new challenge in his career," he said via Goal.
"The managers of Bayern know about it."
Lewandowski, who has an insane tally of 151 goals in 195 games for Bayern, has attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Bayern are said to be adamant they will not allow him to leave ahead of Niko Kovac's first season at the helm, but their stance on four other first-teamers is very different.
According to Christian Falk from BILD, Bernat, Thiago, Arturo Vidal and Jerome Boateng are not seen as indispensable -with Bayern prepared to offload them if the right offer comes in.

All four players, especially the latter trio, will surely have plenty of clubs queueing up for their services following the news.
Vidal has regularly been linked with a move away and feels like the next big star to move to the Chinese Super League, while former Manchester City defender Jerome Boateng has been touted as a possible target for Liverpool.
The fact that Thiago is on the list is rather puzzling but his poor showing in the DFB Pokal final is said to have played a part. Could a return to Barcelona be on the cards for the Spain international?
It looks set to be a pretty big summer for Bayern as they usher in a new era at the Allianz Arena.
