Bayern Munich‘s star striker Robert Lewandowski wants to leave the Bundesliga club this summer to seek “a new challenge”, his agent told Sport Bild on Wednesday.

“Robert feels that he needs a change and a new challenge in his career,” Pini Zahavi told the weekly.

“The managers of Bayern know about it.”

Lewandowski, 29, whose Bayern contract runs until 2021, has been linked with Real Madrid while Qatari-backed Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United are also understood to be interested.

He was the Bundesliga’s top scorer in the just-completed season with 29 goals.

In late February, the Poland international parted ways with his previous agent of 10 years, Cezary Kucharski, and signed up with Zahavi, one of the most powerful agents in world football.

Zahavi said that “Robert’s motivation are not money or a specific club, because almost all top clubs would like to sign up the world’s best striker.”

He said he hoped Bayern president Uli Hoeness and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge would understand the player’s position.

“Everyone in the Bayern club leadership has their own great career to look back on. They should understand his situation,” he told Sport Bild.

Rummenigge told Kicker magazine earlier this month that Bayern fans “do not have to worry about Robert Lewandowski and the relationship with Bayern … We have a very good one.”

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN

Barcelona have identified the Tottenham star as a possible replacement for Andres Iniesta, Sport reports.

The Danish international has emerged as the club’s preferred candidate to fill that void but the La Liga champions are unsure if they can afford the £87m (Dh424m)-rated playmaker.

The 25-year-old has become an integral player for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season and with the London side unwilling to let their prized asset go, Barcelona face a real task of landing the midfielder.

ANGEL DI MARIA

The PSG winger wants to join Atletico Madrid this summer, according to AS.

The Argentina star has enjoyed two successful seasons at Parc des Princes, but wants to move back to the Spanish capital where he played some of the best football of his career with Real Madrid between 2010 and 2014.

The 30-year-old scored 20 goals and provided seven assists in 43 appearances this season, but started just one Champions League game as Unai Emery opted for a front three of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar.

MAURO ICARDI

Chelsea are set to pounce on the Inter forward as soon as Maurizio Sarri is unveiled to succeed Antonio Conte, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Inter captain is one of the most talented centre-forwards in the world and has been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona.

The 25-year-old, who is under contract until 2021, would be a stunning signing for the Blues having scored 110 goals in 190 appearances in Serie A.

JORDI ALBA

Manchester United and Chelsea have entered the race to sign the Barcelona star, Sport claims.

The 29-year-old, who still has 18 months remaining on his contract at the Camp Nou, has reportedly grown frustrated over a lack of movement over an extension to his current deal.

The left-back was a sterling presence for Ernesto Valverde’s side this season as they romped to yet another La Liga title.

And Alba will be hoping to carry his strong form for Spain at the World Cup next month as La Roja go in search of a second title.

DIOGO DALOT

Manchester United are close to signing Porto right-back Diogo Dalot, the Daily Mail reports.

The paper says the 19-year-old has a buy-out clause of £17.4million, with the club expected to offset the deal with Matteo Darmian’s £11.5million sale to Juventus.

United are said to be keen on landing a right-back to provide competition for Antonio Valencia who turns 33 in August.

The Portuguese U-21 international can also play on the left and would bolster Jose Mourinho’s defensive options.
