Manchester City are being linked with a move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski. According to recent reports, the Etihad Stadium could be a possible destination for the veteran Bundesliga forward as he is looking for a fresh challenge and a potential switch to the Premier League might interest him.
It is believed that the Poland international is flirting with the idea of playing football in England and may be interested in making a move to the top tier of English football at the end of the current campaign. He has found the back of the net 97 times in the league during his four seasons at the Allianz Arena and has 74 goals to his name from his time with Borussia Dortmund. Lewandowski is a highly accomplished striker in German football and now, a fresh challenge might excite him.
If the Polish superstar can convince the Bavarians to release him from his contract that runs until the summer of 2021, the scramble will be on. Some reports are suggesting that there is a growing feeling that this could be his last season in the Bundesliga but Bayern won’t be willing to let him leave easily. There is a possibility that a reunion might be on the cards with Pep Guardiola at Manchester after the Spanish manager signed him from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.
The Citizens are currently leading the Premier League table with a tally of 72 points in 27 league matches. They are firmly in the driver’s seat as they look to earn another league title at the top tier of English football with a staggering 13 point lead over their crosstown rivals Manchester United, having played a game less. Pep Guardiola’s side are still participating in two different competitions and have already won the Carabao Cup on Sunday. They are also set to go through to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League having secured a 4-0 advantage over FC Basel from their first leg clash.
City have the likes of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus vying for a place in Pep Guardiola’s starting eleven. The potential addition of Lewandowski could increase the competition for places even more as they look to maintain their dominance in English football over the coming years. The Polish forward has scored 29 goals and provided 4 assists in 34 matches in all competitions for Bayern Munich this season.
It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Lewandowski and whether he ends up making a switch to the Premier League next summer.
