Bayern Munich could be forgiven for thinking they get it all their own way in the transfer window, but they could face a battle to hold onto one of their star players this summer. 

As Pep Guardiola departs and the Carlo Ancelotti era gets underway, it's all change at the Allianz. 

And that could now involve waving goodbye to star striker Robert Lewandowski.

Talks held

The Poland striker's agent told German publication, Der Spiegel, as brought to our attention by ESPN, that the player has held talks with Real Madrid over a possible move. 

He would face tough competition to get into Madrid's starting XI, but he is said to favour a move away from the Bundesliga, in which he was the top scorer last season because he wants a new challenge.

"I've been in Germany for six years, have won everything here. Sometimes you have to consider whether it makes sense to try something new", he said. 

Lewandowski began his career in Germany with Borussia Dortmund before heading to Bayern, but he now looks set to try his hand at La Liga. 

Madrid calling

The move has been on the cards for quite a while, as his agent Cezary Kucharski was spotted at the Bernabeu earlier this year, prompting transfer talk. 

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge tried to brush off speculation at the time, insisting the 27-year-old was staying in Munich. If what Kucharski says is true, though, Rummenigge may now have to accept that the battle is lost.

Ancelotti, meanwhile, should be eyeing potential replacements just in case, which will certainly make for some interesting speculation of its own.
