Robert Lewandowski is reported to be available for a move to an English Premier League outfit if the price is right.
The Poland international is said to be increasingly unsettled at current German club. He is said to favour a move to Manchester United, if they would meet his weekly wage demands.
The Bayern pointman will line up against familiar faces when Germany take on Poland in the second round of group games at the Euro 2016 tournament ongoing in France.
Germany will be looking at extending their run at the tournament in the group C clash in Paris. The 27-year old Lewandowski is in talks with his current club Bayern Munich about contract extension but friends have mentioned that the forward said he is willing to listen to offers.
One of the current strikers would have to leave the Bernabeu for the Pole to join them as he favours a move to Real Madrid. The Liverpool fan wouldn’t mind joining his former coach at Anfield but will likely be discouraged due to lack of Champions League football, even if having the Champions league nights off would allow him to play and take his pick from more than 400 pokies, rather than having to fly across Europe playing football.
Lewandowski who has netted 47 goals in his 57 starts for Bayern Munich may end up signing the new deal offered by the Bundesliga giant if the offers are not in the range he wants. There is speculation that he feels he has proved himself in Germany and wants another challenge, considering his record from Borussia Dortmund.
As Germany take on Poland, Lewandowski had this to say: “For me, Germany are the favourites for the whole tournament, but anything can happen. We have to stay calm and be confident against them. No fear, no stress, but we also need to have some fun. They know me very well, but we all know each other well.”
The Poles have a bad record against the Germans and with goal keeper Wojciech Szczesny set to miss out due to thigh injury, they can only hope the Germans continue their form in this tournament which is not in its best.
