Robert Lewandowski’s agent has distanced his client from a possible move to Manchester United and insisted he is happy at Bayern Munich.
Reports had suggested that United were weighing up a move for Lewandowski after failing in their attempts to set up a deal to sign Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann, yet agent Maik Barthel has stressed that the Polish marksman is not interested in filling a void for Jose Mourinho.
“Does any top player in the world want to be a plan B?” he replied when questioned about the rumour by ESPN FC, responding to the idea that United may turn their attentions to Bayern’s leading marksman after an aborted attempt to sign Griezmann.
Lewandowski extended his contract with Bayern last December and expressed his desire to remain with the club for an extended period.
“This club gives me all I need to make my dreams come true,” he stated. “There are new challenges ahead of us.
“Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and on par with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
“A move for me would not mean a step up. We can win every trophy. Besides, I feel very comfortable in Munich.”
The Lewandowski to United reports always appeared to highly speculative, with United’s interest in Griezmann seeming far more credible after Old Trafford sources let it be known that they are interested in signing the Frenchman this summer.
Football Association chairman Greg Clarke's carefully constructed reform plan is in danger of unravelling before it even reaches sports minister Tracey Crouch after the Professional Footballers' Association joined Kick It Out in criticising the proposed changes.
