Robert Lewandowski has been one of the best players in the world in the past few seasons. He recently broke Gerd Muller’s long-standing record for most Bundesliga goals in a single calendar year.
Lewandowski moved from Dortmund to Bayern Munich back in the summer of 2014 on a free transfer. He has been one of Bayern’s key players ever since the switch. Lewandowski has recorded an impressive 324 goals and 68 assists in 354 appearances in all competitions for Bayern Munich. (stats via Tranfermarkt)
This term Lewandowski has been in impressive form in front of goal yet again. He has recorded 30 goals and 3 assists in just 25 appearances in all competitions this term. (stats via Transfermarkt) The 33-year-old has recorded 43 goals in 34 matches in 2021. But the Polish goal machine is reportedly looking for a move away from Allianz Arena next term.
Major European clubs the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all keen to sign the striker if he becomes available on the market next summer. While Sky Deutschland have reported that the 33-year-old is open for a Premier League or La Liga switch.
Can Bayern Munich afford to lose Robert Lewandowski?
Robert Lewandowski has just 18 months remaining on his current contract with Bayern Munich. Reports coming out of Allianz Arena suggest that Bayern Munich will target Erling Braut Haaland next summer if Lewandowski refuses to sign a new contract at the club. Erling Haaland looks set for a move away from Dortmund next summer.
The 33-year-old has averaged 3.2 shots, 1.5 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga this term. On top of that, he has completed 78.2% of his passes attempted in the league this term. (stats via Whoscored)
Lewandowski at 33 is still one of Bayern’s most important players. The German giants cant afford to lose the Polish goal machine as he has still plenty to offer the German outfit. It will be really difficult to replace the goal threat that Lewandoski offers upfront.
