Robert Lewandowski's agent has refused to rule out the possibility that the Bayern Munich striker may leave the club this summer.
Speaking to French magazine L'Equipe, Lewandowski's agent Cezary Kucharski admitted there was no guarantee that his client would stay at Bayern beyond this summer, with PSG and Real Madrid reportedly interested.
Lewandowski has a contract until 2019; however, should he decide that after two years at Bayern he requires a new challenge, Kucharski seems fully aware that numerous clubs would express their interest.

“We’re very happy at Bayern Munich. We’ll see what happens in the future, but I cannot tell you any more,” Kucharski told L’Equipe.
“For me, he’s the best number nine in the world. Everyone knows the price of the best players in their position, but I can’t give you a figure.

“I don’t think Bayern want to sell him and I don’t want to talk about his price, especially since the championship starts again in Germany on Friday.
“In football, you can never know what will happen. The most important thing is that he fights for the Champions League.”
Following Bayern legend Franz Beckenbauer's revelation this week that Lewandowski has been "mentioned as a possible candidate" for Madrid, Kucharski's quotes will undoubtedly awaken the interest of many of Europe's biggest club.
Why would he want to leave?
This season Lewandowski has scored 15 goals in the Bundesliga - second only to Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang - as Bayern have built a seemingly unassailable eight-point lead at the top of the table.
However, with manager Pep Guardiola set for a move to a Premier League, Lewandowski may decide he too would relish a change in scenery.
Madrid are currently hindered by their upcoming transfer ban - for two windows starting in the summer - however, there remains a distinct possibility that they will find a loophole, allowing them to continue with transfers as before.
With star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic's contract up this summer, PSG will be particularly keen in their pursual of Lewandowski as they too chase Champions League glory.
A move to the Premier League would also in all likelihood be a viable option with Manchester United sure to express their interest if a bidding war commences, whilst Jurgen Klopp would undoubtedly like to reunite with Lewandowski by bringing him to Anfield.
