Robert Lewandowski has remained “open-minded” about his Bayern Munich future amid speculation he could be seeking a transfer this summer.

Speculations have been building recently that the Polish striker would seek to move on from Bayern Munich this summer, but the striker remains relaxed about any potential transfer.

Chelsea and a host of other clubs in Italy, Spain and England are rumoured to be interested in the services of the 32-year-old striker who scored 41 Bundesliga goals last season. 

However, Lewandowski insists he is happy in Munich and so is unlikely to push for a move.

When asked about his future, the striker told, “I remain open-minded. I feel very good at Bayern. The city is superb; it’s a great club.

“I am always curious to learn a new language, a new culture. But whether it will be in football or after my career, even I don’t know.”

Despite missing a good part of last season through injury, Lewandowski scored 41 times in the Bundesliga last season, and in doing so, broke a 39-year-old Bundesliga record set by the legendary Gerd Muller. 

The goal propelled him to the record books and established him as one of the greatest strikers of his generation. 

Speaking about the record, Lewandowski said;

“I am not obsessed with records. When I take on new challenges, I try to do what no one has ever done. Because it pushes me to move forward.”

“For me, if you do something you love, you can achieve goals you thought were impossible.

“To be honest, I thought no player could come close to that record. Especially since I didn’t play for several matches, I was injured for part of the season. And in reality, I don’t realize the magnitude of it. I don’t really feel it, and maybe that’s a good thing.”
