Bayern Munich’s Jupp Heynckes has insisted that although the players want him to stay, he is still only staying until June.

Robert Lewandowski hopes to play for a Los Angeles-based club before he retires, his wife has told Business Insider

Lewandowski, 29, is under contract at Bayern until 2021 and his wife, Anna Lewandowska, has indicated that the Poland international is keen on a future move to Major League Soccer, where LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC would be potential options.

Asked about her husband’s plans for later in his career, Lewandowska, who has represented Poland in traditional karate and is a nutrition specialist, said: “I think that we will spend some time in the United States.

“We dream of Los Angeles, and we would love to develop our brand there.”

Anna Lewandowska said she and her husband are keen to establish the Lewandowski brand in the United States.

She added: “We hope that Robert will end his professional career at a Los Angeles-based club. We can already say that this would be our dream.

“Our goal is to build a strong, honest and stable brand under the name ‘The Lewandowskis.’ We want to create a third brand, and this time together.

“We are aware of our strengths and we know we can not only use it for business but also good things like education and social welfare.

“The time for a Lewandowski brand is now.”

Lewandowski has been linked with Real Madrid regularly in recent years amid his complaints about his club’s reluctance to compete with Europe’s top sides in the transfer market.

However, Bayern have rejected Lewandowski’s advice and in the summer warned potential suitors against making a move for the striker.
