Cezary Kucharski, Robert Lewandowski's official representative, has suggested that the Poland international could leave Borussia Dortmund sooner than expected, Goal.com reports.
Kucharski has confirmed that his client has already made a decision on whether or not to sign a new contract extension with Dortmund. The striker's agent also pointed out the fact that Lewandowski has spent more time in Dortmund than in any other club in his career.
Kucharski was quoted by Goal.com:
Robert has made his decision. Only he decides when he will make his decision public, though.
Those who have followed Robert's career will realise that he's never stayed at a club for longer than two seasons. He's already in his third season at Dortmund. Read between the lines and you'll know what this means...
However, Lewandowski himself has opted to remain silent and refrained from making any comments.
Despite the fact that Marco Reus, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Mario Gotze have all played in the No. 9 role (currently occupied by Lewandowski) in the past, it is clear that neither of them is an out-and-out striker Dortmund so desperately need.
Julian Schieber would represent an interesting alternative, but the 24-year-old's ability to hold on to the ball and finish off attacks are simply not good enough at the moment—Schieber needs to improve his game before he seriously contends for the starting berth.
Dortmund have already had problems with squad depth in attacking positions, and Lewandowski's potential transfer would leave the club in a dire need for a new striker next year.
Meanwhile, Edin Dzeko, who still has two years left on his current contract with Manchester City, revealed that he would love to return to Bundesliga, fueling the rumours of a possible switch to Dortmund.
However, when asked whether the negotiations with the reigning Bundesliga champions have already taken place, the former Wolfsburg man was quick to deny such an arrangement.
Will Lewandowski leave Dortmund in the summer and how would his plausible transfer affect the club? Could Dzeko be on his way back to Bundesliga?
