Widely regarded as one of the best strikers in world football, Lewandowski scored 56 goals for club and country last season.
And now, according to stunning reports, Bayern's talisman is believed to want a “new challenge” - putting Europe’s top club’s on alert.
Earlier today, Sky Sports reporter Paul Gilmour broke the sensational news that Lewandowski has "made it clear" to Bayern he would like to leave the club.
"What we are being told is that Robert Lewandowski wants a new challenge away from Bayern Munich,” said Gilmour.
"Let me just bring you some context on this, he turns 33 on Saturday, he has two years remaining of his Bayern Munich contract.
"It runs until June 2023, when he will be approaching his 35th birthday.
𝐁𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐊𝐈𝐍𝐆: Robert Lewandowski wants a new challenge away from Bayern Munich but the club has valued him at more than £100m.— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) August 19, 2021
"What he feels, we are being told, is that when he gets to that stage it maybe difficult to find that new big European club.
"That's the reason for wanting this challenge, but the problem is that Bayern Munich have put a valuation of around £110m on him.”
The Pole is widely recognised in the game for a dedication to his physical condition, with Guardiola once describing him as "the most professional player I've ever met".
Having said that, though, are City really going to pay more than £100m for a 33-year-old? It seems unlikely, doesn’t it?
