Robert Lewnadowski, a striker for Bayern Munich, is expected to join PSG this summer in a surprise deal.
PSG has entered the competition to recruit Lewandowski, according to L’Equipe, because the star wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer.
The Ligue 1 champions of France have identified Lewandowski as a key target and are hoping to beat Barcelona to his signature.
Luis Campos, who was recently appointed football advisor at the Parc des Princes, is believed to be interested in improving the team’s offense ahead of the 2022/2023 season, according to the article.
PSG has been interested in Lewandowski for some time, but Bayern’s refusal to sell their star forward has prevented them from bringing him to France.
With only a year left on his current contract, Lewandowski could be available for a bargain.
PSG want to add him to manager Mauricio Pochettino’s squad as a replacement for the Mbappe-Messi-Neymar axis, which was overused last season.
Meanwhile, Lewandowski was a huge success at Bayern Munich during his eight-year stay, scoring 344 goals in 375 games and winning eight Bundesliga crowns, three DFB-Pokals, and the UEFA Champions League.
In that time, the Poland international has also won a slew of individual awards, just missing out on last year’s Ballon d’Or to Lionel Messi after scoring 42 goals in 2021 in controversial fashion.
But, after adding another German Bundesliga title to his collection last month, the 33-year-old declared his intention to quit Bayern Munich this summer and pursue a new challenge.
Lewandowksi declared earlier this month, “My era at Bayern is gone.” I don’t think I’ll be able to play for this team much longer.”
