Real Madrid are reportedly considering an outlandish move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski in the January transfer window.
The Poland international has been in remarkable form this season and has netted 18 goals in his first 13 appearances of the season for Bayern, including two in Tuesday’s 3-2 victory at Olympiakos.
The news of Madrid’s interest has been reported in the somewhat unreputable media outlet Ok Diario, which is directed by Eduardo Inda of El Chiringuito de Jugones.
It has been said that Zinedine Zidane believes his attack needs more firepower and the Ballon D'Or nominee, formerly of Borussia Dortmund, has been identified as a key target.
The Pole is contracted at the Bavarian club until 2023 and despite now being aged 31, he is thought to cost in excess of €75m – which would be a significant outlay by the club.
A number of players has been linked with the exit door of Los Blancos this January including Isco, Brahim Diaz and Mariano Diaz.
