Bayern star rejected world record offer

Baku, January 8 AZERTAC

Munich frontman Robert Lewandowski has turned down a move to the Chinese Super League, says his agent.

The Polish striker, 28, was reportedly offered a higher salary than the world record one handed to 32-year-old Argentine Carlos Tevez last month.

The proposed $275 million move was to an unnamed Chinese club.

Lewandowski's agent, Cezary Kucharski, told: "I was contacted by an agent who brings stars to China. The club name wasn't mentioned. If Lewy had decided to move to China, his salary would have been significantly higher than 40 million euros ($58 million), which means more than Carlos Tevez earns.

Lewandowski recently signed a new deal with the Bundesliga champion but Bayern teammate Arjen Robben said he would consider a move to the Chinese Super League or MLS at the end of the season.

The Dutch star also said there was a possibility he would stay with the German giant.

"Everyone has to personally assess this,” Robben said.
