Real Madrid are reportedly confident of marching forward ahead of Manchester United in the race for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.
The Pole is set to leave the German giants and has been touted to join a number of Europe’s best clubs who will surely be interested in him.
Lewandowski is widely regarded to be one of the best strikers in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and so interest in him is no surprise.
United were linked with the striker despite recently signing Romelu Lukaku who himself has gone on to score over 20 goals for his new club across al competitions.
However, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s move to the MLS, joining LA Galaxy there could potentially be room for another forward.
According to Caught Offside, Don Balon claim that Real are confident of completing a deal with Robert and have reassured him they will have no issues agreeing a transfer with Bayern.
Madrid’s interest though certainly makes more sense than the Red Devils’ reported interest given how Karim Benezema has struggled of late.
The Frenchman was widely loved by the Spanish faithful at the start of his career there but in recent seasons has put in some poor performances.
A move away from the La Liga club has been long overdue and it appears that Zinedine Zidane has an eye on Robert Lewandowski to replace him.
Manchester United have put their faith in Romelu Lukaku this season and since he’s delivered it would be harsh to bring in the Bayern star to revert the Belgian into a rotational option.
