ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI could, according to reports, try to leave Bayern Munich this summer.
The current contract of the Poles in Germany runs until 2023.

But his agent Pini Zahavi reportedly wants to secure a raise for his productive client.
Bayern do not want to have any offers for their star striker.
According to Bild, however, Zahavi will prepare a “summer push” to spark interest in Lewandowski – which would cost over £ 50 million.
The desired goal would be the Premier League, whereby the clubs in England can best offer the Bavarians No. 9 a substantial wage increase.
77-year-old Zahavi was keen to bring Lewandowski back in 2018 ahead of the World Cup in Russia that summer.
Chelsea and Manchester United were keenly interested in the 32-year-old.
While Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were also enthusiastic.
Bayern held onto their captain, however, and gave him a raise and a two-year extension in 2019.

And Lewandowski seems to get better with age.
The former Dortmund ace defeated Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and won the FIFA Men’s Best Footballer of the Year award in 2020.
And he has produced phenomenal numbers this season, scoring 36 goals in just 26 Bundesliga games – 43 of them in all competitions.
A stumbling block for a renewal and wage increase at Bayern could be his agent Zahavi.
It is believed that the Israeli has had strained relations with the German Masters Association in the past.
He [Alaba] has a greedy piranha for an agent
Uli Hoeneß on Pini Zahavi
Former Bayern President Uli Hoeneß called Zahavi a “greedy piranha” last year after contract negotiations with another of his customers, David Alaba, collapsed.
He told Sport1 last September: “He [Alaba] has a greedy piranha for an agent.
“His father, whom I like a lot, is very influenced by him.”
The 28-year-old Alaba will be leaving Bayern this summer – with Real Madrid favorites to get his signature.
