Robert Lewandowski has revealed that he is "open-minded" about his future at Bayern Munich, further fueling speculation that he might be willing to leave the club this summer.

The Poland international has been linked to Barcelona and Chelsea amid rumours that he is reportedly frustrated with the Bundesliga giant's transfer policies. However, the 32-year-old insisted that he is "happy in Germany" and isn't actively looking for a move away.

Lewandowski told Canal+: “I remain open-minded. I feel very good at Bayern, the city is superb, it's a great club. I am always curious to learn a new language, a new culture. But whether it will be in football or after my career, even I don't know.”

The prolific striker helped fire Bayern to a ninth successive league title and made history by scoring 41 league goals in a season and broke the record set by the legendary Gerd Muller in 1971-72.

"I am not obsessed with records. When I take on new challenges, I try to do what no one has ever done. Because it pushes me to move forward," he said, before adding, "For me if you do something you love, you can achieve goals you thought were impossible."

Lewandowski concluded, "To be honest, I thought no player could come close to that record.  Especially since I didn't play for several matches, I was injured for part of the season. And in reality, I don't realize the magnitude of it. I don't really feel it and maybe that's a good thing."
