However, Lewandowski’s agent provided no clue that the striker is considering leaving the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

"It would be wrong to say there is no interest,” Maik Barthel told Sport Bild - per ESPN - before adding: "All of us should respect that Robert has a contract at FC Bayern."
Regardless of how much money Liverpool or any other interested club offer Bayern Munich next summer, it’s hard to imagine the German champions agreeing to sell the 27-year-old.
Lewandowski will surely stay at Bayern
Lewandowski is currently playing the best football of his career - earlier this season he scored five goals in nine minutes in a Bundesliga match against Wolfsburg - and is now widely regarded as the best No. 9 in world football.
Furthermore, there are no obvious reasons why the Pole would consider the idea of leaving Bayern, where he is competing for major honours, working under Pep Guardiola and playing alongside some of the world’s best footballers.
Liverpool interest could lead to pay rise for Lewandowski
The only reason why increased speculation could prove beneficial for Lewandowski is for financial purposes. Hearing the likes of Liverpool are keen on the striker may encourage Bayern Munich to offer the player a new deal and a pay increase.
Liverpool stand no realistic chance of signing Lewandowski for the foreseeable future, that much is clear, but it seems that interest from the Merseyside outfit - or possibly another Premier League club - is genuine.
