If you want a transfer done, contact Pini Zahavi and he’ll get you sorted.
That’s pretty much what Paris Saint-Germain did to get Neymar from Barcelona last summer, and it’s something clubs, like Chelsea, will be looking into in their attempts to try and get Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
Przeglad Sportowy in Poland had a catch up with the super agent, who met with the striker a few months ago and started representing him.
The Polish outlet explain their country’s superstar would be open to a move elsewhere, but make it clear it’s got nothing to do with Bayern Munich..
He just wants new goals.
For that to happen, PS (we’re not typing Przeglad Sportowy every time, sorry) reveal Lewandowski had to take ‘intensive action’, which started by parting ways with his old agent, Cezary Kucharski, which Zahavi demanded as he ‘cannot stand understudies’.
However, prying the Poland international away from Germany is a ‘difficult and delicate operation’, and talks of ‘contractual arrangements and the amount of the transfer’ are pure speculation because ‘nothing has been determined yet’.
But, and this is where it gets interesting, PS write that Lewandowski is ‘interested in most of the major clubs in Europe’, of which three are the ‘most intimate’: Real Madrid, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
The problem with the Blues’ inclusion here, and this is our take on it, not PS’s, is they won’t be in the Champions League next season, and that’s most likely going to be a deciding factor.
His likeliest destination is Real Madrid, a club PS claim Lewandowski ‘dreams of transferring to’, and one who also want him.
But, Bayern Munich don’t want to sell, and the Spaniards are ‘aware of the level of complexity’ ahead of them.
Chelsea have the advantage of playing in the Premier League, and depending on who takes over from Antonio Conte, they could maybe convince Lewandowski to play a season out of the Champions League, much like José Mourinho did with Paul Pogba two years ago.
It’s a long shot, but it’s not completely impossible.
