Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski is reportedly ‘still willing’ to leave the Bavarian giants in favour of a move to Real Madrid this summer.
The Polish international is under contract with the Bundesliga champions until 2019, but according to Bild, he will be offered a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2021.
While new boss Carlo Ancelotti has made clear his stance on the matter in that he has no desire to see the prolific ace leave the Allianz Arena this summer, it hasn’t been enough to dismiss the idea entirely.
According to AS, the player’s agent is still looking into a possible move to the Spanish capital, although it is described as a ‘complex’ situation with Jese Rodriguez’s move to Paris Saint-Germain said to be paving the way for a possible deal to happen.
Records continued to tumble for Lewandowski last year, with the former Borussia Dortmund star bagging 42 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions, including 30 in 32 Bundesliga outings.
While it remains to be seen what his possible impact would be on the current attacking trident at Real, it appears as though Zinedine Zidane would be open to adding him to the mix ahead of the new campaign.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema continue to be the preferred starting trio, although the French tactician also has Alvaro Morata back at the Bernabeu this season after the Spanish giants exercised the buy-back clause in his contract with Juventus.
In turn, adding Lewandowski to the squad would certainly spell the end for one of the other strikers, but it’s unclear at this stage as to whether Real have a realistic chance of prising the striker away from Bavaria even though the AS report suggests that the Polish ace wants the move.
