Lewandowski: I had offers to leave Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has admitted he had multiple offers to leave the club over the summer but insists he remains happy to be with the Bundesliga champions.

Lewandowski made no secret of his desire to leave the Allianz Arena during the off-season, with reports suggesting the Poland international was keen to join Real Madrid.

Though it seems the Blancos were less keen to reciprocate in terms of an offer despite the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lewandowski has insisted there were clubs interested in his services, though he knew Bayern were unlikely to allow him to leave.

“There were some things at Bayern which I did not like and I wanted to talk about that,” he told Sportowe Fakty after he slammed the club for not allowing him to leave. “I had several offers from different clubs.

“When I realised, there was a strange atmosphere in the media and between the clubs, I decided to talk about it. I wanted to make a statement by saying: ‘If there are so many people who are not satisfied with me, I might as well leave’.

“Still I knew that Bayern’s answer would be: No, no and no. No matter what kind of offer was made.”
