Robert Lewandowski and Real Madrid have reached 'private agreement'

Following yet another emphatic goalscoring season, Robert Lewandowski is a man in demand across Europe.

Bayern Munich’s striker scored a magnificent 42 goals in 48 games across all competitions last term, 30 of which helping the Bavarians along to Bundesliga success.

Such a return - which he manages season in, season out - has seen Lewandowski become one of the world’s best centre forwards.

His future is now in doubt, though. Previous reports suggested the 27-year-old is happy at the Allianz Arena, but fresh rumours have revealed that a move elsewhere could be in the offing.

Arsenal are interested in luring him to the Emirates Stadium, but according to AS, he has only one destination on his mind.

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes Lewandowski has reached a 'private agreement' to join Real Madrid, after the player’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, and Real's director, Jose Angel Sanchez, met in Spain last month.

Los Blancos are preparing an offer to tempt Bayern, but it’s understood the Bundesliga outfit have no intentions of selling their prized asset.

However, what could prove decisive is whether the Bavarians agree to Lewandowski’s requested €20 million-per-year wages. The Poland international still has three years remaining on his current deal.

He told reporters last week: “I find it strange that some players stay at a club until the end of their contract.

“I’ve never said that I was going to finish my career at this club or that club and I’ve never kissed the badge. It’s just not the way I do things.”

Indeed, Bayern must do all they can to keep their star striker given the dearth of world-class finishers available for a reasonable fee in Europe.

Sure, they would reap something in the region of £60-80 million by selling Lewandowski, but who could they replace him with?

Sergio Aguero is an option, but the Argentine appears happy at Manchester City; perhaps their best bet would be to sign Karim Benzema, whose starting berth would be at threat if his Polish counterpart arrived at the Bernabeu.

One way or another, Bayern still look set to dominate the Bundesliga for years to come after luring Mats Hummels from rivals Borussia Dortmund and Benfica’s Renato Sanches.

In signing the former, the Bundesliga champions weakened their closest rivals considerably, with Dortmund also losing Ilkay Gundogan to Manchester City this week.
