Pep Guardiola could soon reunite with Robert Lewandowski after the Bayern Munich striker's agent revealed Manchester City could be his next club. Guardiola may be eyeing Lewandowski to fill the attacking void Raheem Sterling could leave behind if he departs within the next year.

Earlier this week, Sterling claimed he would be 'open' to fleeing City in search of regular football after growing frustrated with his limited role in Guardiola's plans.

The 26-year-old has started just two Premier League games this season following Jack Grealish's £100million summer arrival.

Phil Foden's recent return from injury could limit his involvement further and result in an exit either in January or next summer.

Even if Sterling was to stay, Guardiola wants a new striker after City failed to sign Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane ahead of this season.

Lewandowski could be the prime candidate amid his desire to leave Bayern for a new challenge.

The 33-year-old wants to part ways with Bayern before his contract expires in 2023 but will remain respectful to maintain his strong relationship with the club.

If the Bundesliga giants let him leave next summer, City could pounce and fill what could be the final piece of their Champions League-winning dream.

His agent, Pini Zahavi, has claimed the Etihad Stadium is a potential destination, which will have undoubtedly grabbed Guardiola's attention.
