New, comments

According to the rumour mongers, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski would like to reunite with Jürgren Klopp at Anfield—next summer and if Liverpool are back in the Champions League.

With three years to go on his current deal with Bayern Munich, there’s still plenty of time left for 27-year-old striker Robert Lewandowski to consider his future, but with the club eager to extend his deal there are rumours that the player is taking the Euros to consider his future.

And according to the English tabloids who are citing German tabloids who are citing unnamed friends of the player, that future could include a reunion with Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp—just not this summer, as the Polish international feels that Champions League involvement is a must if he moves.

It’s a reasonable demand for a player who notched 42 goals in 51 games for the Bundesliga champions last season and is widely regarded as one of the top strikers in the game. It’s also one that, clearly, would rule out a Liverpool move this summer. Lewandowski, though, isn’t thinking this summer.

As the rumour mongers have it, he’s got his eye on a year from now, and how those contract negotiations Bayern would like to engage in go over the next few months will send a strong signal as to whether there’s any truth to the rumours that he’s at least considering moving on from Bayern.

In addition to the suggestion he would relish a Klopp reunion should Liverpool make it back into the Champions League, the rumours have him also considering a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City in a year’s time or a move to Real Madrid if the Spanish giants end up with a striker opening.

Still, all of that’s quite some way down the road, making it rather hard to judge as rumours go. Still, if Liverpool do well this season and Lewandowski doesn’t sign a new deal, expect to hear plenty about the Polish striker just maybe ending up at Anfield.
