Lewandowski is reportedly ready to move on from Bayern Munich after seven years with the Bundesliga club, with Europe’s top clubs now on high alert with the striker available
The top clubs in Europe have been put on high alert after reports emerged that stated Robert Lewandowski is ready for a new challenge.
The striker has spent the last seven years with Bayern Munich, winning the Bundesliga title in every year he has been with the German giants.
Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world, even breaking the record for the most goals in a single Bundesliga season last term.
But it is thought that he is ready to move on from the Allianz Arena and wants to play for another elite European side within the next two years.
Here, Mirror Football looks at five possible suitors…
They had been chasing Tottenham striker Harry Kane, but Tottenham have slapped a £150m price tag on the England captain.
Though Lewandowski is much older than Kane, he is available for a much cheaper price, with Bayern thought to be demanding in the region of £100m.
Kane may have more experience in the Premier League, but Lewandowski is also considered to be an elite goalscorer.
Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani are the current options for the sole striker role in Manchester United ’s system.
Cavani is only signed up till the end of the season, while Greenwood has mainly played on the wing in recent seasons.
The Red Devils have made a new midfielder their priority for the final weeks of the transfer window, but the availability of an elite striker cannot be thrown away.
While midfield is a problem area, signing Lewandowski would automatically make the Red Devils the favourites to win the title.
Which club should Robert Lewandowski move to? Comment below.
La Liga giants Real Madrid may have gone through a round of heavy cost cutting this summer, but they are always interested when a player of Lewandowski’s calibre is available.
Having sold Martin Odegaard and Raphael Varane, they should also be able to stump up the cash needed to bring Lewandowski to the Bernabeu.
Los Blancos are in danger of falling well behind Atletico Madrid in terms of Spanish title contenders, having not made a signing this summer.
Carlo Ancelotti currently possesses Karim Benzema, but most of his goalscoring hopes will rest on the Frenchman staying fit, making a move for Lewandowski welcome to the Italian.
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly available for just £25m this summer, and the cut-price fee has perked the interest of several big European clubs.
If Juve do allow their Portuguese forward to depart then they will need a striker, and Lewandowski could very well be that man.
With the striker suggesting he wants a new challenge, helping Juve to reclaim the Serie A title could be tempting to Lewandowski, with the Old Lady also well-placed to win the Champions League.
Juve boss Max Allegri has a high-quality squad at his disposal, one which helped Ronaldo to win the Serie A golden boot last season.

Though many were focused on Liverpool ’s defensive issues last season, their attack also floundered in the Premier League.
They scored the fewest number of goals since Jurgen Klopp’s first season as manager, a problem that Lewandowski would certainly solve.
The Reds have few quality options beyond their first-choice front three, with a move for Lewandowski handing Klopp a major boost in his hopes of guiding his men to the title.
A move to Liverpool would also reunite Lewandowski with Klopp, with the two having spent four years together at Borussia Dortmund, where they won two Bundesliga titles.
