Robert Lewandowski was one of the many established stars, who were on the radar of Saudi Arabia earlier in the summer transfer window.

The Barcelona superstar was subjected to a move to the Middle East, but the player opted to remain in Camp Nou.

Lewandowski not thinking about Saudi move

Two months into the new season, Lewandowski opened up about speculation linking him to Saudi Arabia.

In a recent interview, the Pole confirmed that he is not thinking about a move to Saudi right now, despite being offered a fortune.

“Right now I’m not thinking about that,” he said (h/t FCB World) when asked about the move to the Middle East, which is now home to established stars such as Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane, among others.

“I’m just thinking about enjoying every minute on the pitch because I know that my time as a footballer won’t last forever,” he added.

Lewandowski has received a lot of flak for his early-season performances. When asked about his goalscoring form, he said, “Everyone focuses only on goals and records, but at Barcelona what matters to me is being part of the game and enjoying playing, even if I don’t score in every match.”

Despite the criticism, Lewandowski has racked up six goals in all competitions this term, while registering four assists.

Lewandowski on Kimmich, Harry Kane

It must be remembered that Lewandowski’s departure last summer left a huge gaping hole in Bayern Munich’s frontline this season.

So much so, that the Bavarians almost ended up losing the Bundesliga title to Borussia Dortmund last season. That led to the club bringing in Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer.

Lewandowski believes Kane would be a good signing for Bayern, but the transition to German football could be tough for the Englishman.

“Harry Kane is a very good signing for Bayern Munich. The first year will not be easy for him. The change is big and he needs time to adapt to Bayern Munich, but he will definitely help them, even though there will be difficult moments,” he said.

The Pole added that it is unrealistic for Kane to replicate his numbers at Bayern, stating, “It is not fair to ask Harry Kane for this high number. He has to adapt to a new culture, a different league, and a different language.”

Finally, Lewandowski was asked about speculations linking Joshua Kimmich to a move to Barcelona earlier in the summer.

The Pole confirmed he had spoken to the German international, although the striker added that he maintains a strict professional relationship with the Bayern Munich star.
