Set to face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final for a second year straight, Bayern Munich will want their talismanic Polish striker to go all guns blazing against his speculated next transfer side, Real Madrid.
Robert Lewandowski will hope to trump out Real Madrid in Bayern’s bid for a treble.
Reportedly, the striker’s new agent Pini Zahavi has reportedly asked the recently crowned Bundesliga champions to allow him to fulfill a long-time dream of pulling on the white jersey of Madrid by agreeing to let him leave the club.
Rumors in the previous month also suggested that Real Madrid have agreed personal terms with Lewandowski and that a ‘deal in principle’ has been decided, with only Bayern left to convince for a suitable transfer fee.
However, outgoing manager Jupp Heynckes has stated chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has an unswerving view on the matter and is determined to keep hold of the Poland international.
According to a report in Marca, that is not stopping him from trying to force through a move, having previously seen a potential transfer to Spain collapse. Lewandowski will have the chance to impress his ideal suitors when the La Liga giants travel to the Allianz Arena for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash next Wednesday.
Despite his desire to join Bayern’s upcoming opponents, Lewandowski has insisted he is not thinking about the speculation and is fixed on the job in hand.
‘Am I thinking about Real in terms of a transfer? No, not at all,’ he said in a recent interview.
‘For now, I am not thinking about it. The season isn’t over. We’re focusing on what is now. If you want to win the Champions League, you have to beat the best.
‘It will definitely be a tough fight. But I hope that we’ll play our brand of soccer and will be the better team.’
