Ok, silly season really is here now. A report on Thursday claims Robert Lewandowski is a boyhood Liverpool fan and would consider a reunion with Jurgen Klopp – but only once the Reds get back in the Champions League.
The claim is made by Ian Ladyman in the Daily Mail, writing that Lewandowski is unsettled at Bayern Munich and dreams of a move to Real Madrid.
However, he adds: “The boyhood Liverpool fan is also interested in teaming up again with his former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp if and when the Anfield club return to the Champions League.”
The 27-year-old is one of Europe’s most prolific strikers, having made his name working with Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.
The two worked together for four years from 2010 to 2014, but Lewandowski controversially moved to Bayern.
During that time, Dortmund won Bundesliga twice, and reached the Champions League final.
Liverpool are without European football next season, but Klopp will certainly be eyeing a top four finish and thus Champions League qualification in his first full season in charge.
Lewandowski is in action for Poland this evening against Germany in the Euros.
