Real Madrid are reportedly ‘closer’ to sealing the transfer of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski to solve their issues up front, according to sources in Spain.

The Poland international looks an ideal purchase for Real as the goals seem to dry up for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema this season, while Alvaro Morata was sold to Chelsea in the summer.

Lewandowski has a superb record during his time in the Bundesliga, scoring 228 goals in spells with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern.

According to Don Balon, Bayern seem increasingly resigned to losing Lewandowski as he appears unsettled at the Allianz Arena, with Hoffenheim front-man Sandro Wagner being lined up to bolster their options up front.

Real seem set to take advantage, with Florentino Perez eager to solve his side’s striker issues, and Lewandowski would be befitting of the kind of Galacticos Los Blancos like to sign.

Robert Lewandowski has been a great goalscorer for Bayern Munich and Poland

The 29-year-old should have little trouble settling in in La Liga, having consistently shown himself to be among the finest goalscorers in Europe down the years.

This is far from ideal for Bayern, however, who have not progressed as perhaps expected in recent years, with no Champions League win since 2013 despite having one of the most talented and deep squads in the game.

Lewandowski may fancy his own chances of winning Europe’s biggest club competition with a move to Real, who have won the trophy three times in the last four seasons.
