Jonathan David, Possible Replacement For Lewandowski At Bayern Munich



Robert Lewandowski, a professional football player from Poland and captain of the Poland national team, was born on August 21, 1988. He currently plays as a striker for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich. 

Lewandowski is regarded as one of the greatest strikers of all time and one of the most successful players in Bundesliga history because of his positioning, technique, and finishing. For club and country, he has scored more than 600 goals in his senior career.

Jonathan David’s Move Will Be Completed By Arsenal

Canadian professional soccer player Jonathan Christian David, who was born on January 14, 2000, plays forward for Lille in Ligue 1. He represents the national team of Canada and was born in the United States.

Meanwhile, the future of Robert Lewandowski is still up in the air, but Bayern Munich has selected a substitute in case he decides to go. Jonathan David, a striker for Lille, is the one and only.

The Bayern managers are not strangers to David. At the start of 2020, rumors that Bayern had the Canadian on their radar were already circulating. 

The Canadian striker scored 19 goals in 48 games last season while playing for OSC Lille in French Ligue 1 since the summer of 2020. The youngster has previously played in the Champions League before. He participated in eight UEFA Champions League games last season and contributed three goals.

David, who joined for €27 million from Belgian club K.A.A Gent two years ago, has a deal that runs until 2025. Although Lille placed tenth in Ligue 1 this season, major clubs, like Manchester United, are interested.

Despite a slump in which he only scored in two of the club’s first twenty-one games in 2022, he still has 32 goals for Lille and is valued at a whopping €50 million by Transfermarkt’s Manuel Veth.

As Bayern gets ready for Lewandowski’s impending departure, they have now added David to their list of potential successors. Saša Kalajdžić of Stuttgart is also on that list, and preliminary talks have already taken place.

If speculations are to be accepted, the 6’7″ striker could be sold this summer for a discount. He will be a much less expensive option than Schick.

The 24-year-old was forced to miss several weeks of play this season because of a shoulder ailment, keeping him from matching his previous season’s total. 

In only 15 games in all competitions this season,Saša Kalajdžić managed to score six goals. He had a successful season in 2020–21, scoring 17 goals from 36 games across all competitions.

The Austrian has a lot of time to develop to the fullest because of his advanced age.

The fascinating fact is that Jonathan David enjoys the Bundesliga very much. His agency made the implication that “the Bundesliga comes first” for the striker even before he moved to Lille.

The young Canadian player had high hopes of succeeding in the Bundesliga like his countryman Alphonso Davies had. 

As members of the Canadian national team, Davies and David have a strong working relationship, which can be very advantageous for Bayern Munich should they decide to make a serious effort to sign the striker.
