The last transfer market was played by big names like Lukaku, Cristiano Ronaldo, Haaland, Mbappé, Harry Kane or Leo Messi. The goal is the most important thing in football and therefore the sports management of the clubs has no qualms about spending large sums of money on attackers. In 2014, Bayern Munich decided to dedicate around 90 million euros, according to ‘Der Spiegel’, in a Polish striker who played in the main rival of the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund. His name was Robert Lewandowski and, eight years after this operation, we can say that the Bavarian team has one of the best investments in its history.
When Lewandowski joined Bayern at the age of 26, he had already been playing at a very high level for three seasons: only if you take the German league into account, he had always added more than 20 goals per season. With these numbers Pep Guardiola he didn’t think about it and Robert, well surrounded by the Munich team, started to shine and to glide in the first step of the best strikers in the world. It’s been a while since and he is now 33 years old. However, the Pole has never lowered his performance and actually achieves some of the best numbers in his history.
LOVED IN EUROPE
With his double against Barça on the first day of the Champions League, Lewandowski has 17 consecutive victories (with 22 goals) in the best European competition, tying the best record of all time that Manuel Neuer wore between September 2019 and February 2021. And it must be remembered that during the 2019-2020 season, he scored 15 in 10 matches played in the Champions League, the year he won the League champions, for only five last year.
Some figures that have boosted the third place among all-time top scorers in the competition, only surpassed by Cristiano Ronaldo (135 goals) and Messi (120). Lewandowski has reached 73 so far.

But it should also be noted that he has 18 games in a row, scoring at least one goal with Bayern. Since February 15, 2021, every time he has played he has scored. He has 46 goals in 37 games in 2021, having started this season seeing the gate ten times in six games played: six goals in four Bundesliga games, two more at Camp Nou in the Champions League and one goal in Germany. Super Cup.
UNCONSTABLE IN THE BUNDESLIGA
Lewandowski is a goal scoring machine. Since joining Bayern in 2014-2015, he has lost just three times out of the 30 goals per season in the Bundesliga.: 17 in the first year, 29 points in 2017-2018 and 22 in 2018-2019. At that point, he must have thought that was a very low number, as over the next two seasons he added 34 goals in 31 games and 41 goals in 29 games, respectively.
A Lewandowski record, because with these 41 goals in one Bundesliga season, he exceeded the 40 achieved by Gerd Muller in 1972.

The objectives are numerous and some will dare to think so too much. These have placed him above those who are considered the best players in history – we’re talking about Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, among others. Because? Because Since the start of the 2019-2020 season, Lewandowski is the player who has scored the most club goals in all competitions: a total of 113. And far away are Cristiano Ronaldo and Mbappé, with 76 each, or Haaland, with 73, and Leo Messi with 69.
No one doubts that Robert Lewandowski is among the best in history. In the Bundesliga or in the Champions League, the striker “does not care” about the disputed competition because he only thinks of scoring. “For years I have heard that he was the best Lewandowski ever. I know that whatever my age, I can always play better and improve my skills, ”he warned a few months ago.. Always close to the surface and connecting ideally on the pitch with all his teammates, his relationship to goal has not deteriorated over time. Quite the contrary. “I don’t feel my age”, installed. Lewandowski is 33 years old and it looks like he still has plenty of goals to score.
