The Poland international’s future has been the subject of much speculation for some time now, with a number of elite sides linked with a swoop for his signature.

However, ESPN’s Bayern Munich correspondent Mark Lovell has provided an update on the situation, stating that Bayern are keen not to sell and will only accept offers of around £175million.

He also tweeted that Lewandowski seems unconvinced by the prospect of moves to either Chelsea, Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain as he holds out instead for his preferred move to Real Madrid.

With an asking price like that, the Spanish giants would surely hold a major advantage anyway due to their financial power, but it seems their prestige and recent immense success is also likely to have a great deal of sway.

One of the best strikers in the world, Lewandowski would be ideal to replace Karim Benzema up front after a below-par season from the Frenchman.

The 29-year-old has shone at Bayern and at Borussia Dortmund before that, so it’s unsurprising perhaps that he fancies a new challenge in a different country.
