With rumours of Bayern Munich interested in Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain making the rounds in worlds football, Polish international Robert Lewandowski has insisted that he does not fear the potential arrival of Argentine.
Chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed this month Bayern would be interested in signing the Argentina international if he were to become available, fuelling speculation over Lewandowski’s future.
But Lewandowski’s agent Maik Barthel has warn Bayern not to look at other options, but is confident in the ability of his client to keep his place in the team whatever happens.
“I don’t know what Bayern’s plans for the future look like, but it would not be a problem for me if they signed another striker, regardless of whether that’s Higuain or someone else,” Lewandowski told Sport Bild.
“I will still be playing if another striker arrives. I’m convinced of my own qualities. I am strong enough.”
Lewandowski has been linked with a switch to the Premier League on more than one occasion, but sees no reason to move as he believes Bayern have what it takes to hold their own against the top clubs from England regardless of their spending power.
“I don’t seen any difference between Bayern and England’s big clubs,” he added.
“Of course, the English clubs have plenty of money to spend, but they have always had a lot of money and Bayern have always been able to compete.
“There is not a single club in England that will catch Bayern just because they have more money all of a sudden.”
