Poland international Lewandowski, who scored 30 league goals in the 2015-16 campaign to help Bayern claim their fourth Bundesliga title in a row, has long been linked with a switch to Madrid andsuggested back in April that he could move to England or Spain one day.
And the former Dortmund star’s agent has now revealed that the Champions League finalists have been in contact with Lewandowski’s camp, with Bayern aware of the situation.
Cezary Kucharski told German news magazine Spiegel: “Real Madrid contacted us a few weeks ago, we listened to everything they said. It’s a big and exciting club. We have informed FC Bayern that we’ve held talks with Madrid.”
Lewandowski himself added: “Contracts are not a holy relic in football. You can like this attitude or not but it’s the truth. Sometimes you have to think about if it is meaningful to try out a new impulse.”
Reports in Germany suggest that Zinedine Zidane’s side, who face Atletico Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final, are ready to offer Lewandowski a six-year-contract worth up to25 million a year.
