Robert Lewandowski has dropped the biggest hint that he will move from Bayern Munich if given the opportunity this season after admitting that he is looking for a new challenge following his six-year spell in Germany, where he has won the Bundesliga on four occasions with two different clubs. Real Madrid looks to be his likely destination after his agent Cezary Kucharski admitted that they have held talks with the Spanish capital club with regards to a potential summer switch.
The Poland international spent four years with Borussia Dortmund with whom he won two Bundesliga titles before he moved to their arch rivals on a free transfer. The 27-year-old has been prolific in his second season for the Bavarian giants, scoring 42 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions as they won the domestic double and lost to Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Lewandowski could spark a bidding war from Europe's top clubs following his latest admission, but according to his agent the Spanish capital club, who are contending the Champions League final on Saturday (28 May) will be favourites to bag the striker's signature. Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked to the striker in the past and with both clubs looking for a striker, they could reignite their interest yet again.
"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," Kucharski said, 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.
The striker's recent admission and potential transfer to Real in the summer will throw up a number of options for other clubs, as Lewandowski's arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu is likely to put Karim Benzema's future in doubt, which will encourage United and Arsenal, who are big admirers of the French striker.
