Munich, Jan 31 (IANS) Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has not ruled out a possibility of moving out of the German football club amidst links with Spanish giants Real Madrid and French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain.
The 27-year-old’s deal expires in 2019 but when asked if he will end his career at Bayern, the striker said it is hard to say.
“As a professional footballer, it’s hard to say. Many times I have heard players say such a thing and then in comes another coach and they are no longer in such high demand or they get a very interesting offer,” Lewandowski was quoted as saying by goal.com on Sunday.
But for now, the Poland international says he is focussed solely on his job at the German club.
“In any case, I feel very well at Bayern and will always give everything for the team while I’m here. I focus exclusively on Bayern. Ever since I was 18, there have been enquiries and rumours and even then I learned to deal with it. I can shut it out, it does not distract me. It has become normal, but it does not interest me,” he said.
Pep Guardiola brought Lewandowski to the Allianz Arena in 2014 and now the manager is set to quit at the end of the season. But Lewandowski said his exit is a long way off and that they would want to celebrate another title win together.
“Guardiola’s exit is a long way off. We now all know that Pep will leave the club in the summer but until then, we are a unit. And we want to celebrate another title with him at the end of the season. That’s why I am fully concentrated on this season. Under Pep I always learned something new, especially in terms of tactics,” he said.
