Robert Lewandowski says a transfer is the 'best solution' as he announces Bayern Munich exit

After spending eight years with Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski is calling time on his spell in Bavaria, with the Polish forward wanting to move on this summer.

After plenty of speculation on his future, Robert Lewandowski confirmed on Monday afternoon that he's planning on leaving Bayern Munich this summer.

But while the 33-year-old made clear his intent to move on in the upcoming window, his departing message raised plenty of other questions about whether Bayern are allowing him to leave.

Lewandowski has enjoyed plenty of success with the German club, winning eight consecutive league titles while also adding eight further domestic cups and a Champions League title to his trophy cabinet.

But with time ticking on his career, it's clear that Lewandowski is wanting to add one final chapter before hanging up his boots for good.

Speaking ahead of Poland's Nations League match with Wales on Wednesday, Lewandowski confirmed his plans.

"When it comes to this subject, hopefully I can give one answer and you won't ask more questions about it.

"For today, one thing is sure. My story with Bayern Munich has come to an end.

"I can't imagine, after everything that has happened in the last few months, I can't imagine a good continuing relationship. I understand that a transfer is the best way forward for both parties. I believe that Bayern won't keep me just because they know they can.

"I think that's everything I can say about this. I'm focusing now on the international break, maybe there will be more time afterwards to say something more about this."

Should Lewandowski be allowed to leave in the summer, Barcelona are currently favourites to acquire his signature.

Of course much will depend on the Spanish club's financial situation, but reports are suggesting that a £35million deal is likely between the two European powerhouses.
