Robert Lewandowski ‘tells his agent to prioritise a move to Real Madrid next summer’ as the Ballon d’Or runner-up ‘prepares to leave Bayern Munich’
- Robert Lewandowski is reportedly eyeing up a move to Spain and LaLiga
- The 33-year-old has apparently told his agent he wants to leave Bayern Munich
- But a move to Real Madrid could depend on their interest in Erling Haaland
Robert Lewandowski has reportedly told his agent to engineer a move to Real Madrid next summer.
According to AS in Spain, Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi has been told by the Bayern Munich forward that a move to the Spanish giants should be considered ‘a priority’.
But the publication adds that Lewandowski’s desire to play for Madrid hinges on their interest in Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland is also expected to be on the move in the summer and his mooted £64m release clause has all of Europe’s heavyweights on alert.
Lewandowski is hopeful, however, as his agent Zahavi also represents David Alaba – who left Bayern for Madrid last summer.
Earlier this week, Lewandowski controversially missed out on winning his first Ballon d’Or title to Lionel Messi.
In his acceptance speech on Monday, Messi paid tribute to the Bayern Munich star – who won the award for striker of the year – and said that he deserved to win the scrapped 2020 Ballon d’Or.
‘Robert, you deserve your Ballon d’Or,’ Messi said. ‘Last year, everyone was in agreement to say that you were the big winner of this award.

On Monday, Messi said Lewandowski would have been a worthy winner of the 2020 title
‘Hopefully France Football will give you the 2020 Ballon d’Or. We all believe you deserved it and I hope you can have it at home.’
Lewandowski was gracious in defeat, saying on Twitter: ‘Congratulations Leo Messi.
‘Congratulations also to all nominated players! I won Striker of the Year Award and no Player can win an individual award without strongest team and loyal fans behind him. Thank you for your support.’
