The report claims that Real Madrid will swoop for the 27-year-old once they receive confirmation that there is concrete interest from his side for a transfer. Lewandowski also supposedly sees Real Madrid as a club at which he can achieve some of his individual ambitions, including the FIFA Ballon d’Or.
Guillem Balague, the journalist who wrote the piece for AS, claims Lewandowski feels the time is ripe for a move to the Spanish capital, where he could earn a net annual salary of around a 12 million.
Move to Spain far from impossible
If there’s one thing that the football world has learned about Robert Lewandowski, it is that he is not afraid to make a controversial move for the sake of his career. The Poland international moved on a free from Borussia Dortmund to rivals Bayern Munich, and it will not be a surprise if he decides to leave for Real Madrid, whose political clout and global reputation could no doubt raise his individual profile.
Bayern themselves are a big enough club to be able to attract top strikers, and have options within the first-team squad — such as Thomas MA?ller and Mario G tze — who can play in that role when necessary. Lewandowski to Real Madrid is definitely one to keep an eye on over the coming months.
