We reported earlier today that Real Madrid have agreed to release €200m for Poland international striker Robert Lewandowski as part of their move to bolster their attacking threat.
The acquisition of Robert Lewandowski to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and probably Gareth Bale — should he fail to move to Old Trafford — will surely be a nightmare to defenders in the upcoming season.
However, there could be a slight delay in the Los Blancos desire to let that happen as they have shifted all attention to their quest for a perfect replacement for Zinedine Zidane, according to reports emanating from Santiago Bernabeu this morning.
This decision by Madrid’s hierarchy appears to be the last chance for Chelsea and Manchester United to convince the 29-year-old to join their respective clubs in the summer.
Chelsea have shown their desire to lure the 151-goal striker to Stamford Bridge so as to cash-in on Alvaro Morata, who failed to impose his presence in the League throughout last season.
As for United, Mourinho is not desperate to add the Poland international to his team as he possesses quality strikers in his team.
Considering the player’s goalscoring prowess and his ability to beat goalkeepers from tight angles, the Portuguese manager will surely welcome the idea to lure him to Old Trafford in the summer.
It was reported last month via Don Balon that the striker wants to achieve his childhood dream of playing at Santiago Bernabeu and that means he has made up his mind to turn a deaf hear to offers coming from other clubs.
