Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has quickly become the world’s most desirable striker after an epic five-goal performance against Wolfsburg, scoring all the goals in the space of nine minutes after entering as a half-time substitute. However, it appears Manchester United are out of the running for the forward before they even get a chance to make a bid.
According to Lewandowski’s agent Cezary Kucharski, the Polish striker has ruled out a move to the city of Manchester because “it’s always raining over there.”
In an interview with a Polish TV station (reported by the Metro), Kucharski said he would be more inclined to allow his client to move to Barcelona or Madrid before considering Manchester since those cities have “the best football atmosphere.
“Games like the one against Wolfsburg immensely help a player increase his value,” Kucharski said. “I have a plan for the rest of Robert’s career in my head. Could that plan take him to Manchester? It’s always raining over there. Munich is much more beautiful and a better place to live,
“Barcelona or Madrid? They are nice places, and in Spain there is the best atmosphere for playing football.”
Lewandowski has scored 20 or more total goals in seven of his last eight senior seasons in stints with Znicz Pruszków, Lech Pozna?, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
