Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski could be about to follow in Pep Guardiola's footsteps by moving to the Premier League at the end of the season.

The Polish striker, widely considered as one of the best in the world, is considering his future at the Allianz Arena and is tempted by a fresh challenge in the world's richest football league.

This is according to the Independent, who claim that Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all been alerted by the situation and would all be willing to pay big to land Lewandowski's signature.

And, indeed, they will have to pay big money. The 27-year-old is contracted to Bayern Munich until 2019, meaning they would be under little pressure to sell. However, if Lewandowski makes his intentions to leave clear, the Bundesliga champions would be willing to consider offers in excess of £70million.

His decision has not been inspired by Guardiola, who himself has already confirmed a desire to manage in the Premier League. In fact, it is widely believed that they pair have shared a frosty relationship since they arrived in Bavaria.

Lewandowski has played the majority of his career in Germany and wants to challenge himself in a new division. The aforementioned Premier League clubs are likely to be the only ones willing to pay Bayern's asking price, although Real Madrid and Barcelona are unlikely to stand idly by.

Just for fun...

Perfect for United

Manchester United have been desperate to seal a big name and have been chasing Gareth Bale for several years, but the chance to sign one of the world's best strikers would be seen as an opportunity too good to pass up.

Their problems up front were in full view on Saturday as they struggled to break down League One outfit Sheffield United on home turf.
