Real Madrid is reportedly ready to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski after losing Kylian Mbappe. This will heat the situation as the striker has been linked with Barcelona for a long time. Los Blancos are working hard to win the race for the French national team. But Real Madrid had some uncertainty.
Mbappe decided to stay at PSG. The La Liga champions will now turn to other targets, another striker who appears to be on their agenda with stronger competition needed for Karim Benzema. According to Defensa Central via Sports Mole, Tuesday (05/24/2022), Real Madrid are ready to meet Bayern’s asking price for Lewandowski, which costs under 50 million euros.
Bayern Munich has insisted that the Poland international will spend the remainder of his contract at the Allianz Arena. However, the player stated that he wanted to go looking for another challenge. Barcelona is known to want to sign the 33-year-old this summer. It was previously reported that Lewandowski’s only hope was to join Camp Nou before Mbappe decided to leave Real Madrid.
A potential obstacle is Benzema’s uncontrollable condition at the Bernabeu. Lewandowski will remain on the bench unless Carlo Ancelotti makes a surprise move to field an experienced center-forward. The 33-year-old’s future has been the subject of debate in recent months. His contract at the Allianz Arena will expire in 2023.
Lewandowski’s adviser revealed that his client wants to move to FC Barcelona to fulfill his dream. Pini Zahabi’s agent said he wanted to go to Barcelona after the Poland striker felt resented by Bayern. “FC Bayern is the history of Robert Lewandowski. Robert wants to leave FC Bayern eight years after devoting everything to the club.”
