Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski reportedly wants a new challenge away from the Bundesliga club. 

The Poland forward netted twice to help his side to a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in their German Super Cup clash on Tuesday night, but new reports suggest that Lewandowski may be providing new coach Julian Nagelsmann with a headache.

According to Sky Sports News, the 32-year-old is happy at Bayern, but wants to secure a move to another top European club before he turns 35. 

His contract with the German champions is set to expire in 2023 only, which could prove to be a stumbling block as the Bavarians are under no immediate pressure to sell him, and also value the player at more than £100 million (R2 billion). 

This is not the first time the forward has tried to leave the Bundesliga side, with his agent, Pini Zahavi, telling Sport Bild in 2018 that his client was looking for a "new challenge".

"Robert feels that he needs a change and a new challenge in his career," Zahavi said. 

"Those responsible at Bayern know about it. 

"Robert's motives are not [about] money or a specific club, because almost all the top clubs would like to have the best striker in the world in their ranks."
