Robert Lewandowski “open” to snub Premier League money for Bayern renewal

It looks like nearly every big football club in Europe will try to sign Robert Lewandowski during the summer. However, according to Sport Bild and as reported by Goal.com, the Polish striker is considering to renew his contract at Bayern Munich.

The 27-year-old signed a five-year deal when he joined the Bundesliga champions on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.

However, in recent months he has been strongly linked with Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and several Premier League clubs, mainly Manchester United and Liverpool (after the appointment of his former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp).

The Poland international said to Bild that there are options to leave Bayern, but he’s not ruling out renewing his contract at the Allianz Arena.

“I know that there is interest from abroad, but I can very well imaging signing on a new deal with Bayern because of the great team and the good teamwork, and because the club is known to honour good performances.”

Bayern recently extended the contracts of Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller, a great sign according to Lewandowski.

“I’ve noticed how the club has prepared for the future,” he added. “The new deals for Boateng and Muller were a good sign that Bayern can keep their star players despite the money in England.”

 

Lewandowski has been in superb form all season, scoring 21 goals in 20 Bundesliga appearances so far. He also hit the net seven times in the Champions League and three times in the DFB Pokal, totaling 31 goals in 31 appearances.
