The future of Robert Lewandowski at Allianz Arena has been up in the air for some time now with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid reportedly scouting him to seal a summer move. Reports from the English media now suggest he may snub advances from English clubs in favour of a move to Estadio Bernabeu.
The Polish striker has apparently set his sights on a move to the Spanish juggernauts as Pep Guardiola has all but confirmed his Premier League switch by the end of this campaign. In addition, new Real gaffer Zinedine Zidane has been murmured to be his long-term admirer, and accordingly, he will doubtless receive the kind of treatment every top-class striker yearns for.
Real have been found guilty of breaching the rules concerning the transfer of youth players and have appealed against the verdict of the court of Arbitration in Sport that prevents them making signings next summer. Should they succeed in overturning the verdict or postponing the ban, the 27-year-old marksman will likely not answer in negative when they come knocking at Bayern Munich’s door.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been widely linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United over the past few weeks, and there cannot be a better replacement for the Portuguese superstar than the Pole, given his fine goalscoring form. Besides, Real chairman Florentino Perez has espoused a habit of signing a so-called Galactico every summer, and Lewandowski fits the bill perfectly.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward has bagged 25 goals in 27 competitive outings for the Bavarian club, and Bayern have an uphill task of retaining his services next season as he is valued at only £60million – a fee even Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur can afford.
