'I'm a supporter': International manager says he wants Liverpool to go and sign £329k-a-week superstar now

Poland national team boss Czeslaw Michniewicz has urged Liverpool to sign superstar striker Robert Lewandowski.

As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Michniewicz said he wants to see Lewandowski at Anfield as he’s a fan of The Reds.

“I’d like to see Lewandowski in Liverpool since I’m a supporter of the club,” said Michniewicz.

Maybe Czeslaw could have a few words in the ear of his captain during the current international break? Dreaming’s free I suppose!

Lewandowski looking to leave Bayern

His national team manager’s comments come at a time when Lewandowski’s future is very much up in the air.

During the same press conference, the 34-year-old definitively stated that his time at Bayern Munich will come to an end this summer.

But should Liverpool in turn replace Mane with Lewandowski?

An opportunity arises for Liverpool

The Reds are reportedly looking to bring in a more out-and-out striker if Mane does leave Anfield. If that is the case, then the gold standard of out-and-out strikers looks like he’ll be on the market.

Of course, it would be a drastic shift in Liverpool’s transfer policy to sign a soon-to-be 34-year-old who’s on a reported £329k-a-week (Salary Sport).

But FSG have already shown that they’ll break that policy for the right player, as they did to sign Thiago Alcantara from Bayern in 2020.

If Jurgen Klopp feels that linking back up with Lewandowski could bring immediate success to Liverpool, maybe they’ll do it again. Former Reds ‘keeper Jerzy Dudek is one such voice who thinks the striker would be perfect for Liverpool.

Lewandowski is certainly in exceptional shape and shows no sign of slowing down, bagging 50 goals in the season gone.

With a year left on his deal, he may not come especially cheap. But Liverpool have an asset who Bayern are keen to add to their ranks.

If the two clubs can come to some kind of swap agreement, and Liverpool can get a couple of years out of Lewandowski, that could be a magnificent piece of business.
