Robert Lewandowski has opened the door for a possible move to the Premier League in the future in search of a new challenge after proving himself at the highest level in the Bundesliga. The Bayern Munich striker has won two consecutive league titles with the Bavarian giants, and had achieved the same during his time with Borussia Dortmund prior to his move to the Allianz Arena.
According to the Daily Mail, the striker is in talks with the club about extending his contract, but is considering alternatives as well. The free-scoring forward will not be short of suitors should he make clear his intention to leave the Bundesliga champions with interest from the La Liga and the Premier League.
Manchester United have been linked with a move for the striker in the past, but Liverpool are reportedly his preferred choice in the English top-flight. Firstly, because he is a boyhood Reds fan, and secondly because he wants a reunion with former boss Jurgen Klopp. However, the Merseyside club will have to achieve Champions League qualification if they are to have any chance of landing the 30-goal striker.
The 27-year-old Poland international is contracted to Bayern until 2019, but is looking at other opportunities and his agent has admitted talking to Real Madrid over a potential switch this summer. The Bundesliga giants are unlikely to sell especially to one of their main European rivals.
"Real Madrid approached us a few weeks ago. It's a big and exciting club. We have listened to everything and informed Bayern that we have held talks with Madrid," said the Polish player's agent Cezary Kucharski, as quoted by ESPN FC.
"I've been in Germany for six years, have won everything here. Sometimes you have to consider whether it makes sense to try something new," the Polish striker added.
Lewandowski is currently with the Poland squad at the Euros and is set to face his Bayern teammates when his country take on Germany in their second group game on Thursday (16 June). The striker, who is yet to open his account at the tournament, has labeled Joachim Low's side as favourites. But he has called on his teammates to stay calm and confident when they face one of the pre-tournament favourites.
"For me, Germany are the favourites for the whole tournament, but anything can happen. We have to stay calm and be confident against them. No fear, no stress, but we also need to have some fun against them," Lewandowski said, as quoted on Sky Sports.
