REVEALED: Why Robert Lewandowski rejected Manchester United and Chelsea transfer offers

Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski had many offers from several European clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, the Poland international has only ever been interested in making one move, according to his former agent Cesary Kucharski.

“He had many offers,” says Kucharski, speaking in Polish daily Pilka Nozna. “The thing is, his wife did not want to go to France (to PSG) – and both did not want to go to England.

“For Robert, only the Spanish sun counted, and only Real Madrid.”

Asked why Lewandowski’s dream move never came to fruition under his stewardship, Kucharski added: “We could have fought for the transfer. But there was a risk that our actions would not be enough to bring him to Madrid or sign a much better deal with Bayern.

“In football business, I never wanted to risk my client.”
