Summer Transfer Betting: Real Madrid favourites to sign Robert Lewandowski
The Poland striker wants to leave the German champions this summer, according to his agent, and Real Madrid are favourites to sign him. Manchester United, Chelsea and others could also compete for Lewandowski's signature.
"Manchester United are 5/1 to sign him and Lewandowski's formidable physical presence is likely to appeal to Jose Mourinho if he seeks an experienced alternative to Romelu Lukaku."
The odds on Real Madrid signing Robert Lewandowski this summer have been cut to 7/5 after the player's agent said his client wants to leave Bayern Munich. Lewandowski is preparing to play for Poland at the World Cup in Russia but Pini Zahavi says the striker is ready to call time on his career with the German champions.
Lewandowski has scored 106 goals for Bayern since joining them from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. As Bayern coasted to the Bundesliga title this season, he scored 29.
Manchester United and Chelsea on red alert after agent's claims
Such impressive scoring stats mean the Pole will not be short of offers from top clubs. Manchester United are 5/1 to sign him and Lewandowski's formidable physical presence is likely to appeal to Jose Mourinho if he seeks an experienced alternative to Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea are another Premier League club that might be interested and should have the money to sign Lewandowski. They're 8/1 to get him and, with Alvaro Morata 5/4 to leave Stamford Bridge for Juventus, they will need a striker this summer. First, though, the Blues probably need to decide who will be the manager next season.
PSG monitoring Lewandowski but Manchester City aren't interested
PSG and Manchester City will always be mentioned when a top player comes on the market but the odds indicate that Lewandowski is far more likely to join the French champions than the Premier League title winners. PSG are 11/1 to sign Lewandowski, with 22/1. Pep Guardiola managed the Pole at Bayern for one season but he probably doesn't fit into the manager's plans at City.
Liverpool, like City, aren't expected to move for Lewandowski, with Jurgen Klopp 22/1 to bring him to Anfield.
