Spanish Report Claims Robert Lewandowski Will Take a Pay Cut to Force Real Madrid Transfer

Publish date:

Robert Lewandowski will take a pay cut to force his way out of Bayern Munich and complete a dream move to Real Madrid.

Notorious Spanish rumourmongers Don Balon report that the Polish striker has caught the eye of Madrid's president Florentino Pérez, and with Los Blancos struggling to find the back of the net this season, Lewandowski is seen as the perfect striker to turn around the club's poor form.

It is understood that Pérez has already been weighing up moves for Harry Kane, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, with the 70-year-old president prepared to offload Karim Benzema or Gareth Bale to make a move happen. 

However, it is now believed that Lewandowski is at the top of Pérez's wishlist.

Despite scoring 30 goals last season, the Polish striker missed out on being crowned the top scorer in the Bundesliga after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang registered 31 - something that made Lewandowski consider his future at the Allianz Arena.

This season, the 29-year-old is already opening up a big gap between himself and the Borussia Dortmund striker. The Polish forward has 13 goals in just 12 games in the league, while a goalscoring drought for Aubameyang has left him on 10 goals for the new season.

Lewandowski has spent the last seven years in Germany, representing Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. 

The former Lech Poznan striker has scored an impressive 164 Bundesliga goals in just 239 appearances, something which has made the Poland international become one of the most recognisable strikers in world football.
