Manchester City have switched their eyes elsewhere as a trade for No. 1 target Harry Kane looks increasingly doubtful due to Tottenham’s refusal to cooperate. Their alternative, on the other hand, isn’t half awful.
Furthermore, there is a history between the player and the manager. In two illustrious seasons at the Allianz Arena, Pep Guardiola signed the Poland captain and led him to two Bundesliga titles and a German Cup.
Guardiola took Lewandowski’s all-round game to the next level after joining from Borussia Dortmund. Guardiola used Lewandowski to great effect as his No. 9 in a fluid system, with the Pole’s pressuring and understanding of the game definitely improving.
When Guardiola left in 2016, Lewandowski stated, ‘I can only say that every player – no matter how long he remained with us – has learnt a great deal from Pep.’ ‘He made every single player better.’ Guardiola’s impact will be felt for a long time. Guardiola is a player about whom I can only speak positively.
