Robert Lewandowski could leave Bayern Munich but is unlikely to join Manchester United, according to the player's agent

The Poland international produced a devastating display for his club side on Tuesday, coming on at half-time against Wolfsburg to score five goals in nine minutes and seal a 5-1 victory.

Lewandowski has been regularly linked with a move to Old Trafford and Louis van Gaal, the United manager, is said to be a long-standing admirer of the player.


However, Cezary Kucharski, the player's agent, has taken , citing the inclement weather as one reason why his client would be reluctant to move to England.

"Games like the one against Wolfsburg immensely help a player increase his value," he told TVN24.

"I have a plan for the rest of Robert's career in my head. Could that plan take him to Manchester? It's always raining over there. Munich is much more beautiful and a better place to live."

Kucharski, who is clearly keen to capitalise on the extra attention Lewandowski has had since his goal haul on Tuesday, went on to imply that his client may consider a move to the warmer climes of La Liga.

“Barcelona or Madrid? They are nice places, and in Spain there is the best atmosphere for playing football."

The 27-year-old striker, who would have signed for Blackburn Rovers in 2010 were not for the Eyjafjallajokull volcano eruption, has a contract in place with Bayern until June 2019.
