lol so aguero, who you claim is off the bench, goes then City will replace him with a no.1 striker and displace Jesus? lol
I never said that and one quote would suffice.

Pep is after a striker that he likes & could share the workload. Aguero isn't his type of striker, which is evident to whoever has seen City play.

Where did you see this at?

I have never seen one actually credible link to him by us, its just been pure tosh spread by bored Twitlers and dodgy Spanish, German, and Italian rags. He is too pricey and too old (no way would give him a 4 or 5 year deal, which is what he wants.) Karl-Heinz Rummenigge a month ago officially said zero chance they sell him this summer, and they almost never fuck about and switch course.

Sandro Wagner is their only other striker, and unless they have some secret deal with Inter for Icardi, they would never leave themselves that vulnerable. They fully expect (I do not agree) that they will win the CL this year. All their top people have said this so many times this summer.

Even if he were for sale, we'd have 0 chance.  Since we'd have to make them an offer they couldn't refuse (and they can refuse a lot), we have less than 0.

Yeah I know his age etc but I'd still take him mate Knocks spots what we have now.

I know the up and downside to these lads like him,higuain,Cavani but class is class they dont lose it. Might get a tad slower like Cescy but they dont lose their skills.

Meanwhile, not ONE word anywhere linking us to either Haller or Jovic of Frankfurt, two real deal and young options. Piatek, btw has started to score again too.

That Isak kid has been on fire since he joined Willem II. 11 goals in 11 matches (and also 3 assists) for the Dutch side, many of them were amazing, his movement is so elegant. Can't see Dortmund letting him go this summer. They don't want to be like City with Sancho.

Physically perfect, goal-obsessed Lewandowski is Bundesliga Player of the Year

https://theathletic.com/1775688/2020/04/28/bundesliga-player-of-the-year-robert-lewandowski/

Physically perfect, goal-obsessed Lewandowski is Bundesliga Player ...

Writing about Robert Lewandowski, the most consistent centre-forward of his generation, poses a similar dilemma to the one routinely encountered by chroniclers of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo: what is left to say that hasn’t already been said?

A goalscoring machine. A near-indestructible body. A one-track mind bordering on the obsessive. The words have been the same for a few good years now, even as the numbers keep getting bigger. And 2020-21 is shaping up to be his best season ever. Twenty-five goals in 23 Bundesliga games, 39 in 33 in all competitions; he has a realistic shot at breaking Gerd Muller’s 40 goals record from 1971-72, long considered untouchable.

Maybe Lewandowski can even fulfil a lifelong ambition to win the European Cup this year. “I still believe that one day, we will play in the Champions League final and we will win it,” the 31-year-old told The Guardian before Bayern’s last-16 outing at Chelsea in February. Plenty of neutrals would have come around to that view, too, after his two assists for Serge Gnabry and an easy tap-in meant Bayern went home from Stamford Bridge with a 3-0 win.

Lewandowski injured his knee during that game and was out of action for four weeks, the longest he has ever been injured during his 10 years in the Bundesliga. (Due to the effects of Covid-19, he only missed two league games and should be fully restored by the time the league is scheduled to kick off again in May).

His durability is not a coincidence but just reward for a life in asceticism, entirely devoted to physical perfection. His late father Krzysztof was a football coach and judoka, while his mother Iwona was a volleyball player. Lewandowski Snr had the boy practising judo and sent him on long hiking runs but “Bobek” only wanted to play football. A photo in his biography, written by Wojciech Zawiola, shows the eight-year-old at a carnival, wearing a Danish national team kit as a disguise. Iwona recalls Robert teaching their boxer dog Kokusia to play as a goalkeeper (without biting the ball) for penalty practice and outrunning the exhausted dog in races through the woods.

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich, Bundesliga, Player of the Year

From a young age, he was determined to dedicate himself to his craft, eschewing the usual trappings of teenage life, the odd joy-ride without a driver’s licence excepted. Nutritional advice courtesy of his karate-champion wife Anna has been another piece of the puzzle. Lewandowski believes he can play on for another five or six years at this level. “He is one of the most professional footballers I have ever worked with,” Pep Guardiola said. “He eats, sleeps and trains for his job. He’s never injured because he focuses so much on the right diet and proper preparation.”

The Catalan was initially not convinced he needed a centre-forward in Munich but soon understood the value of an out-and-out No 9 who can also play a bit, courtesy of Lewandowski’s spell in attacking midfield under Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund. Lewandowski admits he possesses the same selfish streak that all natural goalscorers seem to be born with. Team-mates at Bayern used to joke that his egotism even dwarfed that of Dutch winger Arjen Robben but he’s not one to stay in the box or on the last shoulder of the defender, waiting for things to happen. He wants to come deep, link up play, make space for others.

Without his record-breaking streak of 16 goals in 11 consecutive games at the start of the season, a dysfunctional Bayern would have been a million miles away from defending their title. After Hansi Flick restored positional order and a cohesive passing game, Lewandowski became the main beneficiary of more regular supply routes. On top of that, dressing-room sources have noticed a change in attitude.

Having more or less openly pushed for a move to Real Madrid in the past, Lewandowski is said to have become much more of team player off the pitch, helping young strikers hone their finishing their skills. “You can always improve” is his core mantra, if not perhaps quite as much to reach Messi or Cristiano levels. “When I look at those two, I see the mistakes that were made during my youth development,” he told Zawiola with a typical mix of honesty and confidence.

A few years ago, he taught himself to take free kicks to increase his chances of finding the net. He cites shots from distance as one of his few remaining weakness but the flip-side to that limitation is his focus on the most promising of finishes, centrally in the box. His underlying numbers are, as expected, elite in that respect. StatsBomb data shows he produces 4.67 shots at goal per game. Just under half of those are on target, and every other shot on target is a goal. “He shoots, he scores” is true for one in five shots he takes.

“In terms of efficiency, he’s second among the best-ever strikers of Bayern’s history after Gerd Muller,” his team-mate Thomas Muller told Sport-Bild recently. Gerd Muller scored 365 goals in 427 Bundesliga games, a rate of 0.85 goals per game. This season, Lewandowski has gone past Germany’s greatest striker in terms of the ratio: 313 league matches have brought 227 goals, a rate of 0.72 goals per game.

If he does continue at the same incredible figure for another five seasons, beating Muller’s otherworldly career total might just be possible.
