There is going to be a frantic dash made by clubs in Europe to sign new players as the deadline day is approaching. Players from Bayern Munich could leave, but one thing is certain that no star player will leave Bavaria in the next 12 days. However, Robert Lewandowski does have plans to leave in the future.

According to Sky Sports, Lewandowski is open to experiencing a new challenge in his career. However, a transfer is unlikely this summer as Die Roten values him over €100 million. The Polish striker is in no mood to force a move despite being frustrated after being priced out of a move.

A transfer away from Bavaria could be possible for Lewandowski next summer. His current deal with Die Roten comes to an end in 2023. It remains to be seen whether Rekordmeister hands him a new deal as he turns 33 later this week. Moreover, the top European clubs could hesitate on spending big on a player that will be nearing mid-30s.

Lewandowski had previously agitated for a move away from Bavaria in 2018. However, Rekordmeister stood firm and refused to even entertain offers for him. He eventually penned a new deal and won numerous trophies in the last three years, including the Champions League.

After winning the treble in 2019/20, Lewandowski has also hinted that he would be open to retiring at Die Roten. However, the German club is yet to open contract talks with the prolific goalscorer. The transfer speculation could be a way of putting pressure on Rekordmeister for a new deal.

Even though Lewandowski is ageing like a fine wine, Die Roten will have to start looking for his long-term successor. Hasan Salihamidzic recently confirmed club’s interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker will be available next summer for a fixed release clause worth €75 million.

If there is no breakthrough regarding a new deal during this season, then it will not be surprising to see Lewandowski look for a move next summer. He has always been keen on joining Real Madrid, but other top European clubs will be in the mix for him.
