Real Madrid has been long linked with a move for Robert Lewandowski, and Bayern manager confirms striker’s desire to leave.
There have been reports that the Polish international feels that his time in Bundesliga is dusted, having won every possible accolade from the domestic categories.
Despite being 30, the former Borussia Dortmund striker remains optimistic about donning Real Madrid’s white jersey.
Despite having his trust placed in Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, Julen Lorpetegui is looking to add a goal scoring striker in order to get cover and protect his ideal attacking duo from injuries.
The former Spain coach has Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski, Mauro Icardi and Edinson Cavani on his radar. However, only the Bayern and Paris men are open to leaving their clubs.
Robert Lewandowski is Real Madrid’s priority. His agent Pina Zahavi was in the Spanish capital earlier in July to discuss a transfer. However, the Bavarian club is not willing to let go of their star man. Niko Kovac also considers the 30 year old an integral part of his plans for next season.
Uli Hoeness, who has supreme power with Bayern’s transfer decision and is also not willing to allow the player to leave. Lewandowski has an official pen to paper at the Allianz Arena until 2021 which he cannot flout.
Real Madrid are very clear about not forcing a move for Lewandowski as they do not want to take relationships with Bayern to the south. They enjoy a very transparent business and are keen to keep doing so.
Recently, Bayern Munich’s manager Niko Kovac hinted that Lewandowski might be staying, even though he admits that the Polish is inclined towards a move away.
“It’s true that Lewandowski is flirting with a move. But what he wants is one thing and what we want is another,” said Kovac. “We’re Bayern, we have a top striker, and we won’t listen to people from the outside telling us what to do,” added Kovac.
Real Madrid remain calm on the situation in spite of losing Cristiano Ronaldo. The present Juventus talisman would potentially form a guarantee of fifty goals every season. The Whites however believe that they have enough cover to fill the Portuguese’s void. While they are looking for a lethal front man, they are not desperate.
