Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that their star striker Robert Lewandowski wants to make a move to European Champions Real Madrid.
Lewandowski has been mooted to make a switch to the Bernabeu multiple times over the past few years. However, this time, Rummenigge has admitted himself that the Poland international could be leaving very soon.
As per Bild, the 29-year-old star striker wants to move to Real Madrid. It was reported that the recent demeaning statements given by Lewandowski about the Bundesliga Champions weren’t his first, and that the Polish striker has been in the management’s bad books for quite some time now.
Moreover, CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has also admitted to the fact that Lewandowski’s Bayern days are now numbered, as he confirmed that the striker wanted to leave the club.
Rummenigge stated: “I am sorry for what Lewandowski said. It’s not the first time he talks bad about our club and I know his agent Barthel is behind his statements. I don’t believe, however, that a player has all this power. Lewandowski’s contract expires in 2021 and unfortunately for him, there is no release clause.
“Lewandowski was also unhappy with the pre-season tour we had in Asia but he should remember that Real Madrid, the clubs he dreams of playing for, spent 24 days travelling with hot weather, that’s much more than what we did in the summer.”
Lewandowski moved to the Allianz Arena back in 2014 from Borussia Dortmund, and since then, he has netted a tally of 116 goals in 152 appearances.
