The silly season is about to begin as the transfer window is set to open in a month. Even though pandemic has had adverse effects on the finances of clubs, speculation is always there regarding the future of big stars in Europe. Bayern Munich currently boasts numerous stars in the squad, so speculative reports are bound to take place. Robert Lewandowski was the latest Die Roten player linked with a transfer away from the club.
In the last couple of weeks, there were few murmurs in the German media that big clubs have enquired about the availability of the Polish striker during the summer window. Chelsea and Manchester City were then credited interest in the best number nine in the world.
It would have extraordinary events for Lewandowski to move away from the club. However, the constant reports about a transfer did hint towards possible contract talks between the German club and striker.
Lewandowski has cleared the air around his future while talking to Tuttosport this week. The admission from the Polish striker should put an end to speculation. The Polish striker admitted that he is happy in Bavaria.

Rekordmeister currently has other areas to address in the squad, so there was next to no chance of them entertaining offers for the Polish striker. Moreover, Lewandowski is showing no signs of slowing down despite turning 32 this season. He is getting better every season and setting a very high benchmark for strikers in Europe.
The Polish striker scored a hattrick against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday. He is on the verge of making Bundesliga history. With the hattrick on Saturday, Lewandowski’s tally in Bundesliga this season reached 39. He needs two more goals to break Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a single Bundesliga season. Despite one serious injury, Lewandowski has managed to come close to this record.
In the next couple of years, Bayern will have to start thinking about finding a long-term replacement for Robert Lewandowski. Borussia Dortmund qualifying for the Champions League could turn out to be a blessing for Die Roten if that keeps Erling Braut Haaland at the club for one more season. The Norwegian striker is the ideal replacement for Lewandowski due to his exploits in Europe and Bundesliga at such a young age.
As of now, Rekordmeister will be focusing on signing a midfielder during the summer window. There is also a chance of signing a right-back since Julian Nagelsmann could use three at the back in Bavaria next season.
