Robert Lewandowski has been the best striker in the world during the past three seasons. The Polish striker has been enjoying a lot of collective and individual success during this period. Despite the striker’s insistence about being happy at Bayern Munich, he continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid.

According to AS, Lewandowski has reportedly told his agent Pini Zahavi to arrange a transfer move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. The Spanish media outlet also insists that Lewandowski considers a move to Real Madrid as a priority.

This is not the first time Lewandowski has been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu. During the summer transfer window in 2018, Zahavi had publicly declared Lewandowski’s wish to leave Bavaria. Real Madrid was considered as the destination for the Polish striker, but Die Roten were in no mood to negotiate a transfer.

Robert Lewandowski reportedly held talks with the club and decided to stay in Bavaria. The Polish striker scored bucket loads of goals under Niko Kovac in the following season. He eventually signed a new deal to quash speculation surrounding his future.

After signing the new contract in 2019, Lewandowski took his game to the next level. He silenced his critics by scoring 15 goals in the Champions League during the 2019/20 season and brought the prestigious trophy back to Allianz Arena.

The Polish striker continued his great goalscoring run in the following season and broke Gerd Muller’s record of scoring 40 goals in a single Bundesliga season.  It will be a big surprise if Robert Lewandowski decides to part ways with Bayern in the next summer transfer window since he has previously hinted towards ending his career in Bavaria.

However, the recent speculation about the Polish striker’s future makes sense when you look at his contract situation. He currently has 18 months left on his contract. Die Roten are reportedly in no rush to open talks with him, but Lewandowski is waiting for the club to make an offer.

Nevertheless, bringing Lewandowski next summer doesn’t make much sense for Lewandowski. The Spanish club is destined to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in 2022, while Karim Benzema is still one of the best strikers in the world. The best possible scenario for Die Roten will be Lewandowski signing three-year deal. Along with extending the Polish striker’s contract, Bayern should also bring in one young striker that can grow in the next couple of years and eventually replace Lewandowski.
