Robert Lewandowski rules out Bayern Munich exit

by Tanveer Arayan

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has rubbished suggestions that he could leave the Allianz Arena.

Lewandowski has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Liverpool in recent months and incoming Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti is said to have Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain on his radar.

However, Lewandowski insisted he is not tempted by the money in the Premier League and that he will be Bayern’s main forward for the foreseeable future.

“I don’t see any difference between Bayern and England’s big clubs,” Lewandowski said.

“Of course, the English clubs have plenty of money to spend — but they always had a lot of money and Bayern have always been able to compete. There is not a single club in England that will catch Bayern just because they have more money all of a sudden.

“I don’t know what Bayern’s plans for the future look like, but it would not be a problem for me if they signed another striker — regardless of whether that’s Higuain or someone else.

“I will still be playing if another striker arrives. I am convinced of my own qualities — I am strong enough.”

Bayern consistently challenge for trophies while Man United are in a stage of rebuilding under Louis van Gaal.

Of course, every player has their price and United may be able to tempt Bayern with a huge offer, but it is unlikely that the Pole will be convinced to make the move to Manchester. It is clear United are on the lookout for a marquee signing, with Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Barcelona’s Neymar also linked with moves to the club.
