After spending more than a decade in the Bundesliga, Robert Lewandowski might be close to a move away from Germany. PSG are the most likely ones in a sea of clubs hoping to sign the goal machine that is Lewandowski. This move, however, ultimately relies on Kylian Mbappe’s future.
Lewandowski started his Bundesliga journey back in 2010 when Borussia Dortmund swooped him up for € 4.5 million. He scored 74 goals for them in 131 appearances before joining their arch-rivals Bayern Munich in 2014. In the past 7 years, he has managed to bundle in 198 goals in 216 appearances.
After dousing himself with success, the 32-year-old is looking for one final challenge outside Germany. PSG with their array of superstars will be a big attraction among the other clubs. Mbappe is seeking a move this summer and that might increase the chances of PSG signing Lewandowski.
PSG to replace Mbappe with Lewandowski?
Mbappe has been in stellar form in Ligue 1 this season scoring 25 goals in 28 appearances. He also managed to score 8 goals in 10 Champions League games. The 22-year-old has a contract at PSG that runs till the end of next season. Talks for a renewal don’t seem to be getting anywhere.
Real Madrid are in the lead to sign the Frenchman. Mbappe is determined to win the Champions League and believes that Madrid will be the place for it. He has a release clause of over €150 million which will surely benefit the French Champions to buy another superstar.
Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and many others are linked to PSG though much work hasn’t been done to materialize those moves. After Neymar agreed to extend his contract at PSG, we can expect PSG to make a huge transfer this transfer window.
The Polish International is only 4 goals away from Gerd Müller’s 40 goal record. Apart from PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City are inclined to sign him. If he stays in Bundesliga he stands a chance to beat Gerd Muller’s record for the most Bundesliga goals ever. And that’s around 94 goals away.
