European giant enters race for Robert Lewandowski

accreditation

Another major European club has reportedly signalled its intention to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski from under FC Barcelona's noses.

Earlier in June, reports suggested that the 33-year-old is ready to go to war with the Bundesliga champions in order to seal an exit by refusing to take part in pre-season training with the German side, which starts in the second week of July.

The forward has been adamant about his desire to leave the Allianz Arena over the past month, although his club appear unwilling to part ways with the Poland international, who still has a year left on his deal in Germany.

If he does leave, Barca are believed to be the frontrunners to secure his signature, with reports suggesting he has already agreed a three-year contract with the Blaugrana.

However, according to L'Equipe, Paris Saint-Germain have now identified Lewandowski as a top target and are ready to rival the Catalan giants for his services.

The club's newly appointed football advisor Luis Campos is said to be keen to bolster the French side's attack ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

PSG are said to be looking to add Lewandowski as an alternative to the Kylian Mbappe-Lionel Messi-Neymar trident, with some pundits slamming that trio as "lazy" during the 2021/22 season.

One potential stumbling block for the Paris-based side, though, is the LaLiga giants' willingness to make him the focal point of their frontline next season, which PSG may not be able to offer due to their high-profile front three.
