Reports: Real Madrid willing to offer €150m for Lewandowski
According to Polish newspaper, Przeglad Sportowy, Lewandowski has changed agents in one last attempt to push a move through to Real Madrid.
Robert Lewandowski has changed his agent in an attempt to fulfill his dream of signing for Real Madrid. Until recently, Cezary Kucharski looked after the striker's matters but Pini Zahavi is now in charge of operations for the Bayern man. He is the same agent who pushed Neymar to PSG over the line and he has already contacted Real Madrid according to polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy. Los Blancos have even said they would be willing to part with €150 million for the Pole.
The biggest obstacle for any potential move is Bayern Munich, who are unwilling to listen to offers. Lewandowski has a deal with the German club until 2021 but the striker knows Benzema is on his last legs and has made an effort for one last push towards Madrid. The agent he signed with is one of the best connected in the world and the belief is that if he can't do it then nobody can.
Since his time at Borussia Dortmund, Lewandowski was wanted by Real Madrid but in 2013 when the club held negotiations for the possible signing of the player, he already had a verbal agreement with Bayern and nothing could be done to stop the move but he has never left Real Madrid's list of targets. Harry Kane has captured the imagination of the club but Spurs are notoriously difficult to negotiate with and Kane has said he is keen to continue in London.
Asked by Kicker earlier in the week, Lewandowski did not reject the rumours linking him with a move: "Right now, I am not thinking about that. If now, as a player of Bayern, I was thinking about the rumours that had me at Real Madrid, it wouldn't be good for me because I wouldn't be focused on my team."
