Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been rumored to exit the Bavarian giant and head for Real Madrid this summer. Die Bayern manager, Carlo Ancelotti however believes that Los Blancos has no need for the striker and the German giants are not willing to let go of a player who is considered as world best in his position.
“Real Madrid have a number of fantastic players, like [Karim] Benzema, [Gareth] Bale and [Cristiano] Ronaldo. They don’t need Lewandowski as well. And even if they feel they do need Lewandowski, Bayern will not sell him.” Ancelotti said, as reported by Sport Bild, via Goal.com.
Lewandowski is considered as one of the top strikers in Europe and he made sure of it last season. The 27-year-old scored 30 goals in 32 appearances in the German Bundesliga in 2015/2016. He had a shot accuracy of 60% and created a total of 22 chances for his team, according to Squawka.
Real Madrid’s interest in Lewandowski seems a bit odd, considering that they already possess one of the best attacking front three in world football. Along with their present players, they have also added Alvaro Morata from Juventus this summer, whom Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane wants to keep, despite rumors that Los Blancos wants to make huge profit from the player, according to Evening Standard.
The Real Madrid front three of Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo plays every game of the season when fit, barring occasional Cup matches due to rest. Lewandowski won’t like to move to the Santiago Bernabeu without proper assurances of good game time. Hence, even if Madrid brings in the Bayern Munich and Poland striker, they have to let go one of their present front three attackers.
