Kucharski, a onetime Poland international and an ex-lawmaker, is suspected of making threats and attempting to blackmail the Bayern Munich player for money, state news agency PAP reported, citing the District Prosecutor's Office in Warsaw.
Marcin Saduś, a spokesman for prosecutors, was quoted as saying that investigators believed the suspect made “criminal threats” against Lewandowski, trying to force "the outstanding football player, his former client and associate” to pay EUR 20 million.
Saduś added that a search was under way at Kucharski’s home in the Warsaw suburb of Konstancin-Jeziorna, the PAP news agency reported.
German news magazine Der Spiegel reported last month that Kucharski filed a lawsuit against Lewandowski in which he demanded compensation of around PLN 39 million amid a dispute over shares in the RL Management company that the two founded together in 2014 and which was later dissolved.
Lewandowski, who captains the Polish national football team, called the lawsuit unjustified and accused his former agent of trying to blackmail him, the PAP news agency reported, citing Der Spiegel and Polish news website onet.pl.
According to onet.pl, Lewandowski’s lawyer this month filed a formal complaint against Kucharski with prosecutors.
