In what's a really flabbergasting news for the fans, Robert Lewandowski has apparently told Bayern Munich that he wishes to leave the club this summer. However, he didn't reveal the clubs which Lewandowski would like to join.
"Robert feels that he needs a change and a new challenge in his career", Pini Zahavi told the weekly.
Pep Guardiola knows all about Lewandowski's talents after their time together at Bayern between 2014-16, including a five-goal barrage in nine minutes (as a substitute) against Wolfsburg.
Zahavi said that "Robert's motivation are not money or a specific club, because nearly all top clubs would like to sign up the world's best striker".
Lewandowski has come under fire in recent months with some claiming that he has lost focus due to a desire to move to Real Madrid in the off-season. The player has always admired los Blancos and would no doubt fancy a move to Madrid.More news: Donald Trump wants to ban luxury German cars

Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG have all been linked to the player in the past with United attempting to bring the Polish marksman to the club when Louis van Gaal was the manager. Other reports speak about a deal with Paris and their 31-year-old Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani.
"Every one of the Bayern leadership had great careers themselves".
Real is a real possibility for Lewandowski, especially after both Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo expressed doubts about remaining at the reigning European champions in the aftermath of their UEFA Champions League final victory over Liverpool at the weekend. He helped the team win the league each year, chipping in 29 goals this past season.
Lewandowski was widely criticized for his performances in the two legs against los Blancos. With him reported to be on the go, Robert's link to Stamford Bridge makes sense.
I understand that Lewandowski's possible arrival does not automatically mean that Alvaro Morata will be pushed out the door, as they don't want to lose too many of their big names this summer. "We will show the football world that the club holds more power".
