Robert Lewandowski has reportedly changed agents, setting off a new set of rumors linking him to a move away from Bayern Munich.
Robert Lewandowski is at the center of a football agent tussle after the Bayern Munich superstar parted ways with his representatives.
Polish football journalist Mateusz Borek took to his personal Twitter account to reveal that the striker had ended his relationship with agents Cezary Kucharski and Maik Barthel on Wednesday after a decade of service and will link up with noted agent Pini Zahavi.
Borek stated: "After more than 10 years of cooperation. Robert Lewandowski changes [his] agent."
BREAKING: Po ponad 10 latach współpracy. Robert LEWANDOWSKI zmienia agenta. Z Czarkiem Kucharskim zrobili dużo fajnych rzeczy razem ale współpraca właśnie dobiegła końca. Teraz czas na światowy TOP.. Z kim zwiąże się umową Lewy? Mino RAIOLA? Pini ZAGAVI? A może Jorge MENDES?— Mateusz Borek (@BorekMati) February 21, 2018
PINI ZAHAVI , jeden z największych agentów piłkarskich na świecie, będzie reprezentował interesy Roberta Lewandowskiego. - To dla mnie wielki zaszczyt i przywilej, ze będę reprezentował i dbał o karierę najlepszego napastnika świata - powiedział mi dziś rano.— Mateusz Borek (@BorekMati) February 22, 2018
Lewandowski's parting of the ways with Barthel and Kucharski could also signal a ramping up in rumors surrounding his Bayern future, with La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid continuously being linked with him in recent months.
The 30-year-old goalscorer has attempted to play down suggestions that he would trade life at the Allianz Arena for Santiago Bernabeu, but that hasn't halted the conjecture about an impending move on Real's part.
Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has reportedly earmarked Lewandowski as a potential transfer target, as he looks to usher in a new Galactico era in the Spanish capital.
The ex-Borussia Dortmund hotshot brushed off reports over a transfer to Spain as recently as Tuesday as he revealed he was fully focused on continuing to help Bayern dominate football in Germany.
Lewandowski had said: "At the moment I do not worry about it [the rumors].
"If I was to think about the Real speculation as a Bayern player it would not be good for me because I wouldn't be focused on my job here anymore. I'm a Bayern player and I want to give everything here."
