Speculation regarding Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski’s future has taken a new turn, after the Polish striker ignited more rumours by posting a cryptic message on social media.
Lewandowski, who was reported to be unhappy with the club and his teammates after having missed out on the Bundesliga’s golden boot award last season, has seemingly become a major target for Chelsea and Manchester United, as both Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho look to bolster their front-line ahead of next campaign.
However, any deal regarding the highly-rated striker has been dismissed by the German giants, insisting that Lewandowski won’t be leaving the Allianz Arena this summer.
“There are no talks with other clubs, and there will not be. If other clubs negotiate with a player who still has a long-term contract, they risk punishment from FIFA. The player’s agent also assured us that he did not hold talks with any other club.”
Lewandowski just tweeted, then deleted this. Roughly translates to ‘read between the lines.’ Not happy about Bayern’s statement then. pic.twitter.com/m2iJdV8pZ6

The message was written in Polish, which roughly translates to: ‘Sometimes you need to read between the lines.’
Though the tweet was deleted by the star very quickly, the damage had already been done by then, as some eagle-eyed fans were able to capture the message.
