Lewandowski Squashes Rumors of Potential Move to Fenerbahce Under Mourinho’s Management

Despite swirling transfer rumors and two years left in his contract with Barcelona, Robert Lewandowski dismisses mooted ties to the 19-time Turkish titans.

Last season, Lewandowski bagged 26 goals across all competitions, a slight dip from the 33 goals during his inaugural LaLiga-winning season with the club.

With Barcelona lagging behind Real Madrid in LaLiga and bowing out early from the Champions League, whispers of a squad overhaul gained momentum.

Fenerbahce, now steered by Jose Mourinho, surfaced as a conjectured new haven for Lewandowski.

Yet, the striker brushed off the rumors to Sport: “Fenerbahce haven’t buzzed me. I’m clueless about these talks.”

Lewandowski is on the brink of 36 when the next LaLiga season kicks off in mid-August.

He fielded questions on possibly hanging up his boots at a career peak, akin to Toni Kroos’s recent capstone Champions League victory with Real Madrid.

“That moment will whisper to my heart. An internal tug must prelude any decision,” he reflected.

“It’s tricky to pinpoint that moment solo. I must resonate with my decision, which remains undecided.”

“Physically, I’m in top shape, which sidelines any retirement thoughts. Perhaps Kroos felt it was his time, but that moment hasn’t struck me. My rigorous training continues to bear fruit,” he added.

Lewandowski anticipates a potential boost under Hansi Flick’s management at Camp Nou next season, recalling 83 goals and 18 assists tallied during their prior stint at Bayern Munich.

The striker also reminisced about setting the Bundesliga’s single-season goal record with 41 goals under Flick, clinching the league title in 2020-21.
