The silly season is upon us as the summer transfer window opens in June. Bayern Munich will be linked with numerous players throughout the window. There will be numerous reports speculating the future of players from the current squad at Die Roten.

Earlier in May, there were reports suggesting Robert Lewandowski could be on the move. Chelsea and Manchester City were linked with the prolific striker as he enters the final two years of his current deal at Die Roten.

The club chiefs were quick to dismiss reports suggesting that Lewandowski may leave Bavaria in summer. The Polish striker is considered as the best number nine in the world, so it doesn’t makes sense for the German Champions to part ways with him this summer.

Lewandowski’s is currently focussed on Euro 2020 as he will be looking to take Poland deep into the tournament. However, the Polish striker is open-minded about his long-term future at Die Roten. While talking to Canal+ this week (via Goal), Lewandowski insisted that he likes to experience a new culture.

"“I remain open-minded. I feel very good at Bayern, the city is superb, it’s a great club.”“I am always curious to learn a new language, a new culture. But whether it will be in football or after my career, even I don’t know.”"

There is nothing to worry about for Die Roten and fans after reading these comments from Lewandowski. The Polish striker is not going anywhere this summer, and most importantly there are not many clubs that can come up with an extraordinary offer for him.

Robert Lewandowski is probably hoping for a new deal. The Poland international will be hoping to be rewarded for his contributions in the last two seasons. Lewandowski has been scoring goals for fun across all competitions, so he is well worth in his rights to think about a new deal. With every passing season, he is setting a new benchmark for strikers in the Bundesliga.

The Polish striker enjoyed a historic 2020/21 campaign in the Bundesliga. He managed to break Gerd Muller’s 50 year-long record of most goals in a single Bundesliga campaign. Lewandowski managed to score 41 goals in 29 league games for Die Roten. If he was fit for the Champions League knockout games against PSG, then Bayern may well have ended up defending the title.

One thing looks certain that Robert Lewandowski will be playing in Bavaria next season. Since he will be 33 next season, Die Roten has to think about a successor for him. Lewandowski is confident about playing at the top level for many years, but his workload will need managing in the coming seasons. If he continues to maintain the current goalscoring rate, then he will end up retiring in Bavaria and experience different culture after retirement.
