Robert Lewandowski has told Bayern Munich that he’s had enough and wants to move on to pastures new this summer.
The Polish poacher is contracted at the Bundesliga champions up until 2021 thanks to a renewal signed a couple of seasons ago, but it would appear that he has no intention of seeing that out.
The big update comes from journalist Christian Falk, whose record with all things Bayern is nigh-on shatterproof.

Lewandowski has recently retained the services of ‘super agent’ Pini Zahavi (the man who took Neymar from Real Madrid to PSG), who has been tasked with negotiating the 29-year-old’s exit.
Speaking to Sport Bild, Zahavi quoth:
Robert feels he needs a change and a new challenge in his career.
The managers of Bayern know about it.
Word on the wire is that a Premier League switch may well be viable with Chelsea leading the pack, though Real Madrid are almost certain to come wading in and throwing their weight around too.
Given that he’s quite probably the best true No.9 striker in the world, the competition to woo him is likely to be fierce and quite possibly ugly.
