Robert Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi views Manchester City as a ‘possible buyer’ for the Bayern Munich star in 2022, according to Bild.
The 33-year-old’s current deal expires in 2023 and it’s stated he isn’t pleased with the rumours linking Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland with the Bavarian club.
His topic is ‘highly sensitive’ and the striker gets annoyed when quizzed about the possibility of Haaland joining Bayern.
Lewandowski wants to play, likely at the highest level, for another four years. His agent ‘keeps all options open’, including Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, who can be potential suitors next summer.
Bild say Bayern at least should have discussed internally the possibility of how to replace the Poland international. They are doing their homework and Haaland’s name is likely to have been mentioned, including the cost needed to complete his signing.
The Poland international fits perfectly for Bayern right now, but the Norway international has enormous potential.
To sign Haaland, a fixed fee of €75m, plus bonuses, and an additional €30-40m commission must be paid to agent Mino Raiola and the player’s father. There would be an annual salary of at least €30m, but it’s not made clear whether the wages are gross or net per season.
Haaland, who is likely to leave BVB in 2022, can choose his next destination. Manchester City ‘should show great interest’ in him, but Bayern, as per Bild, should also be in the picture for the BVB striker.
