Barcelona & Real Madrid not a step up for me, says Lewandowski

The Poland international has been linked with the Spanish clubs in recent years, but sees no reason to leave Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid would not represent a step up in his career.

The Poland international has been heavily linked with a transfer to Madrid in particular in recent seasons, but signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract in December to commit his future to the Allianz Arena.

And the 28-year-old says there is no reason for him to consider a transfer now as he believes Bayern to be at the same level as Spain's most famous clubs.

"Bayern are one of the best teams in the world and on a par with Real Madrid and Barcelona," he told Sport Bild. "A move for me would not mean a step up. We can win every trophy.

"Besides, I feel very comfortable in Munich."

Team-mate Arjen Robben has expressed a concern at Bayern's squad size, but Lewandowski believes the number is ideal for keeping the players motivated.

"It's not as though we only have 14 players," he said. "I think the squad size is perfect and can be our big asset in the fight for the title.

"The number of players is just right. It makes sure that all the players are motivated because everyone sees the chance to be in the first XI."

Carlo Ancelotti's side are three points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and face Arsenal in the last 16 of the Champions League.
