Robert Lewandowski has convinced Real Madrid to make him the club’s latest Galactico. A private agreement is said to have been reached - according to reports in Germany - between the Polish striker and Los Blancos, after Real director José Ángel Sánchez met Lewandowski’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, when he was last in the Spanish capital for Bayern’s Champions League semifinal against Atleti.
Real Madrid will make an offer for the Bayern forward, but only if the Bavarian club would be willing to sell. For now, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the executive director at the German giants, has already announced that he has no intention of negotiating. It’s also hard to believe that the Bundesliga title holders would let one of their most important players leave, especially seeing as there are no other strikers on the market that match the Pole’s characteristics and quality for less than €100 million.
Annual salary of €20 million
Although there have been various meetings between Bayern and Kucharski to try and close out the 27 year olds contract extension, the German side are not in any rush to sign as Lewandowski’s current contract doesn’t end until 2019. What’s more, Lewandowski is requesting an annual salary of €20 million, a figure that Bayern are not keen on reaching.
Lewandowski planning on move
With that in mind, Lewandowski has been planning on and would be more than ready to force a move. After two years in Munich winning all there is to win in Germany, his intention is to realize the transfer of his career and a childhood dream by arriving at the Bernabéu.
“I find it strange that some players stay at a club until the end of their contract,” the Pole affirmed recently. “I’ve never said that I was going to finish my career this club or that club and I’ve never kissed the badge. It’s just not the way I do things.”
