Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewnadowski, is set for a shock move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
According to L’Equipe, PSG have entered the race to sign Lewandowski amid the player’s desire to leave Bayern Munich this summer.
The French Ligue 1 champions have identified Lewandowski as a top target and are keen to win the race for his signature amid interest from Barcelona.
The report added that Luis Campos, who was recently appointed football advisor at the Parc des Princes, is said to be keen on bolstering their attack ahead of the 2022/2023 campaign.
Lewandowski has been on PSG’s radar for some time, only for Bayern’s refusal to offload their star attacker to prevent them from bringing him to France.
Yet with just 12 months to run on his current contract, Lewandowski could now be available for a cut-price.
PSG are looking to add him to manager Mauricio Pochettino’s ranks and provide an alternative to the Mbappe-Messi-Neymar axis which was relied upon too heavily last season.
Meanwhile, Lewandowski has enjoyed great success in his eight-year spell at Bayern Munich, recording a staggering 344 goals in 375 appearances while winning eight Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals and the UEFA Champions League.
The Poland international has also swept up a host of individual accolades in that time, narrowly missing out on last year’s Ballon d’Or award to Lionel Messi in controversial fashion after scoring 42 goals in 2021.
But after adding another German Bundesliga title to his collection last month, the 33-year-old recently announced his intention to leave Bayern Munich and embark on a new challenge this summer.
“My era at Bayern is over,” Lewandowksi said earlier this month. I don’t see any possibility to continue playing for this club anymore.”
