ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI could look to leave Bayern Munich this summer, according to reports.
The Pole’s current contract in Germany runs until 2023.

But his agent Pini Zahavi is reportedly looking to secure a pay rise for his prolific client.
Bayern do not want to entertain any offers for their star striker.
The desired destination would be the Premier League, with clubs in England most able to offer Bayern’s No9 a considerable pay rise.
Zahavi, 77, was interested in moving Lewandowski back in 2018, prior to that summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Bayern held on to their main man, however, delivering him a pay rise and two-year extension in 2019.

And Lewandowski appears to be getting better with age.
The former Dortmund ace beat Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to win Fifa’s The Best Men’s Footballer of the Year award in 2020.
And he has produced phenomenal numbers this season, netting 36 goals in just 26 Bundesliga outings – with 43 in all competitions.
A stumbling block on a renewal and pay rise at Bayern, however, could come in the shape of his agent, Zahavi.
The Israeli is believed to have had strained relations with the German champions’ board in the past.

Uli Hoeness on Pini Zahavi
Former Bayern president Uli Hoeness last year called Zahavi a ‘greedy piranha’, after contract negotiations with another of his clients David Alaba broke down.
He told Sport1 last September: “He [Alaba] has a greedy piranha for an agent.
“His father, whom I like a lot, he’s letting himself be influenced by him very much.”
Alaba, 28, will leave Bayern this summer – with Real Madrid favourites to land his signature.
