Robert Lewandowski has put clubs from the Premier League and La Liga on red alert after admitting he would be open to testing his skills in either England or Spain.
The Polish striker has been consistently considered one of the world's best since emerging on the scene at Borussia Dortmund. His fine form has continued at Bayern Munich to the point where he has been linked with big money moves to the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United.
Until now, however, there has been little to suggest that Lewandowski wants to leave the Allianz Arena. Indeed, the German media recently reported that he had agreed to extend his contract until 2021 in a deal that would tie his prime years to the Bavarian outfit.

But there is still no confirmation that those reports are true and now Lewandowski has openly admitted that he is thinking about his next move despite being "very happy" at Bayern Munich.
Both England and Spain's top flight appeal to the 27-year-old and he admits that he sees himself playing in either of the leagues "one day".

"Maybe I'll play in England or Spain one day but, if I committed to pursuing my career in Munich, it's because I considered it the ideal club at which to move up a level and to win more trophies," Lewandowski told France Football.
"The fact that every season they reach at least the semi-finals of the Champions League impressed me.
"Apart from Real [Madrid], Barca and Atletico [Madrid], what other teams can brag about such consistency? I don't know what my future will look like but at the moment I'm very happy at Bayern."
Reports have strongly linked Lewandowski with a move to the Bernabeu in recent months with club president Florentino Perez rumoured to be a big fan. A February report from AS suggested Real Madrid were preparing an ambitious bid to bring him to Spain's capital this summer, just before FIFA's transfer embargo comes into play.
Other reports have even suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo will be sold in order to generate the appropriate funds to make it happen. If so, Premier League clubs would find it near impossible to coax Lewandowski to British shores.
No club in England can offer what Real Madrid can. History, money and a better chance of winning trophies, Los Blancos would stand as favourites to land Lewandowski if and when he decides to leave Bayern Munich.
