Lewandowski, Morata, both for Madrid?

Robert Lewandowski’s name is back on Real Madrid’s agenda according to reports in Spain and he could join instead of – or as well as – Juventus’ Alvaro Morata.

The Bayern Munich striker is, Marca says, one of the strikers Los Blancos are looking at for next season but the possibility of signing two hasn’t been discounted.

Morata was sold to Juventus in 2014 but Madrid hold a buyback option on the Spain international and recent rumours have claimed they’ll exercise it in the summer.

The legal situation of Karim Benzema, caught up in the Mathieu Valbuena blackmail allegations, complicates matters, though Madrid are at this point standing by the France international.

Madrid have twice attempted to sign Lewandowski and his continuation at Bayern is clouded by doubts over Pep Guardiola’s future, as the former Barcelona Coach could yet extend his stay in Bavaria or walk away at the end of the season.

Lewandowski’s agent has spoken warmly of the idea of the Poland international moving to Spain, mentioning Madrid and Barca by name and rejecting both Manchester United and Manchester City, citing the weather in north-west England as a concern.
