One of the many well-known athletes that caught Saudi Arabia’s attention earlier in the summer transfer window was Robert Lewandowski.
The world-class Barcelona player had the option of moving to the Middle East, but he chose to stay in Camp Nou.
Lewandowski isn’t considering the Saudi manoeuvre
Lewandowski spoke out about rumours that he was connected to Saudi Arabia two months into the current campaign.
The Pole recently admitted in an interview that, despite being given a large sum of money, he is not now considering moving to Saudi Arabia.
When questioned about the relocation to the Middle East, which is now home to established talents like Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Sadio Mane, among others, he responded, “Right now I’m not thinking about that” (h/t FCB World).
My time as a football player won’t last forever, so I’m just trying to enjoy every second on the pitch,’ he continued.
Lewandowski has taken a lot of heat for his efforts in the early part of the season. In response to a question on his goal-scoring prowess, he stated, “Everyone focuses only on goals and records. But at Barcelona what matters to me is being part of the game and enjoying playing, even if I don’t score in every match.”
Despite the criticism, Lewandowski has accumulated six goals and four assists this season across all competitions.
Lewandowski on Harry Kane, Kimmich
Remember that Lewandowski’s departure from Bayern Munich last summer created a large gaping hole in their front line for this season.
So much so that Borussia Dortmund nearly defeated the Bavarians to win the Bundesliga title the previous season. Because of that, the team acquired Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer.
Although Lewandowski thinks Kane would be a wonderful addition to Bayern, the Englishman may find it difficult to adjust to playing in Germany.
“Bayern Munich made a great acquisition in Harry Kane. He will not have an easy first year. Although there will undoubtedly be challenging times. He will undoubtedly assist them despite the significant shift and need for adjustment to Bayern Munich.
The Pole said, “It is not fair to ask Harry Kane for this high amount. Kane cannot recreate his statistics at Bayern. A new culture, a new league, and a new language all need him to adjust.
Lewandowski was also questioned over rumours that Joshua Kimmich may have moved to Barcelona earlier in the summer.
The striker stated that he keeps a rigorous professional connection with the Bayern Munich player. But that the Pole has talked to the German international.
