Robert Lewandowski has lifted the lid on his future ahead of the upcoming transfer window, following Bayern Munich's 2-2 draw with VfL Wolfsburg. The 33-year-old, who has won the Bundesliga without fail since arriving at the Allianz Arena in 2014, has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea lately.

He has featured 46 times for the German giants this season, directly contributing towards 57 goals across all competitions. Despite his age, Lewandowski has continued to showcase his evergreen goal-scoring ability, attracting attention from a host of leading European sides.

The Poland international sees his contract with Bayern expire at the end of next season, casting an element of doubt over his future in Germany. So, speaking on his future, after Bayern's draw Lewandowski addressed the rumours linking him with an exit.

As per Gianluigi Longari , he said: "It is very likely that this is my last match with Bayern. I can't say one-hundred per cent, but maybe it was. We want to find the best solution for me and the club."


Lewandowski has told Bayern that he will not sign a contract extension and, instead, push to join Barcelona this summer, rather than leave as a free agent when his current deal expires in June 2023, acccording to Sky Sports .

However, ahead of the January transfer window and prior to the sanctioning of Roman Abramovich, Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia was offered the chance to sign the £26 million-rated striker from Bayern in a deal that would see Timo Werner potentially head the other way, according to football consultant Ian McGarry .

Pini Zahavi, Lewandowski's agent, was reportedly keen to see if a deal with the west Londoners would be viable. McGarry told the Transfer Window Podcast:

"Pini Zahavi, often described as the original super-agent, represents Lewandowski and has done for more than two years. "Zahavi is also a close-confidant of Marina Granovskaia and it is certainly the case that he has offered Lewandowski to Chelsea and Granovskaia. It's a move which could include Werner going to Bayern."

With the Polish talisman's future far from certain, Thomas Tuchel has been handed a huge boost towards reigniting securing Lewandowski's signature - especially with Barcelona's ongoing financial woes in mind.
