Robert Lewandowski’s Bayern Munich days are numbered. The Polish forward has been in the bad books with management for several weeks and it’s been made public in recent days. Lewandowski wants a move to Real Madrid.
Linked with Los Blancos for several seasons, there’s credence to the rumours. Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted that the striker wanted out. This admission would hint that he won’t be at Bayern for much longer.
Lewandowski’s recent outburst about the organisation of the German club wasn’t his first.
Rummenigge told Bild: “I am sorry for what Lewandowski said. It’s not the first time he talks bad about our club and I know his agent Barthel is behind his statements. I don’t believe, however, that a player has all this power. Lewandowski’s contract expires in 2021 and unfortunately for him, there is no release clause.”
“Lewandowski was also unhappy with the pre-season tour we had in Asia but he should remember that Real Madrid, the clubs he dreams of playing for, spent 24 days travelling with hot weather, that’s much more than what we did in the summer.” How much would Madrid be willing to pay for the 29-year-old forward?
One of Europe’s best
There’s no doubting Lewandowski’s pedigree. He’s scored 116 goals in 152 appearances for Bayern since moving there in 2014. 85 of those goals have come in the last two seasons.
Playing for Borussia Dortmund, Lewandowski scored four times in the Champions League final in 2013 to blitz Madrid and send his side to the final. There, they were beaten 2-1 by Bayern. He scored 36 goals that season.
