Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made enquiries to Bayern Munich over Robert Lewandowski’s availability.
Due to his frustrations with his role at Bayern towards the end of last season, Lewandowski had been strongly linked towards a move to Real Madrid.
In light of losing record scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, Los Blancos viewed the Pole as an ideal replacement for a five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
But a move to the Santiago Bernabeu didn’t materialise, with Lewandowski and Bayern resolving their differences before the beginning of this season.
And the 30-year-old has continued his prolific form after scoring an incredible 38 goals in 45 appearances. He’s also chipped in 13 assists in the process.
With his contract to expire in June 2021, Lewandowski even opened the door to extend his stay at Bayern in March.
“We have had early discussions, but it will take some time because at the moment, my focus is on the end of the season,” he said.
“But yes, I can very much imagine staying longer.”
But German sports magazine Kicker has claimed that talks over a new deal between Bayern and Lewandowski have broken down.
It’s understood the Poland international has been offered a one-year extension, which has not gone down well as he hoped for a longer deal.
Therefore, United and PSG have been alerted to the situation with both clubs allegedly having already enquired about Lewandowski.
Apparently, Bayern will make one last attempt to persuade their top-scorer to agree to a new contract prior to their DFB-Pokal Cup final against RB Leipzig on May 25.
For now, though, all thoughts on the saga will likely be put aside ahead of the Bavarians’ Bundesliga finale against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. Victory will secure them a seventh consecutive league title.
Meanwhile, Lewandowski is set to win his fourth Bundesliga Golden Boot award as he leads Borussia Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer by four goals in the scoring charts on 22 strikes.
