Lewandowski rejected China move – agent

Robert Lewandowski was approached over a €40 million a year move to the Chinese Super League before signing a new deal at Bayern Munich, claims his agent.

Lewandowski extended his contract at Bayern until the summer of 2021 last month after netting 59 Bundesliga goals during his two-and-a-half years at the club.

However, his agent, Cezary Kucharski, has revealed that Lewandowski was approached by an unnamed Chinese club and offered a contract that was more than €40m per season.

That is more than Shanghai Shenhua have agreed with recent signing Carlos Tevez and would have made Lewandowski the highest-paid player in the world.

"I was contacted by an agent who brings stars to China," Kucharski told SportoweFakty.

"The club name wasn't mentioned.

"If Lewy had decided to move to China, his salary would have been significantly higher than €40m, which means more than Carlos Tevez earns.

"Robert is not for sale right now, but I never say never. Life offers several solutions."
