The Bundesliga champions played a 2-2 with Wolfsburg in the final day of the topflight this season, having already clinched the title weeks ago.

Lewandowski said: “I told the club that if an offer comes in, then we have to think about it – also for the club.

“We have to find the best solution for both sides.”

He added: “I won’t sign a new contract.”

Last year, Lewandowski broke Muller’s 49-year record for most Bundesliga goals in a calendar year with 43 in 34 games, and won the FIFA Best player of the year.

The Poland striker has scored 49 in 45 appearances in all competitions this season.
