However, he looks poised for a move to Barcelona rather than any of the top English sides.

And Cezary Kucharski, who represented Lewandowski until 2018, has given his view as to why a transfer to the Premier League has never occurred.

Speaking to Sport1, he said: “I always heard Robert give a childish explanation that it rains so much in England.

“But I think the real reason was that he didn’t think he could be as efficient as in Germany. Robert was really afraid of that.”

He then added: “PSG? I wasn’t allowed to negotiate with PSG in the past because Robert’s wife didn’t want to go to Paris.

“Maybe that has changed now.”

Things could have been so different for Lewandowski had a move to Blackburn not fallen through in 2010.

Before the Pole was an internationally renowned marksman he was all set to move to Ewood Park – until a volcanic ash cloud grounded flights across Europe.

He instead moved to Borussia Dortmund, and then onto Bayern Munich in 2014, where he has scored a remarkable 344 goals in 375 appearances.

That includes 50 goals in 46 games last season – while his 35 in the Bundesliga saw him claim a second successive European Golden Shoe.

But last month Lewandowski made it clear he wants to leave Bayern despite still having one year left on his contract.

He said: “My era at Bayern is over. I don’t see any possibility to continue playing for this club anymore.

“Bayern’s a serious club and I believe they won’t keep me, I don’t want to play there anymore.

“A transfer is the best solution. I hope they don’t stop me.”

But Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn then angrily responded to those comments.

He said: “I can’t tell you why Robert chose this path. Public statements like that don’t get you anywhere.

“Robert became world footballer here twice in a row – I think he should know what he has at Bayern.”
