A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Fichajes has recently reported that Real Madrid are trailing Liverpool in pursuit of Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski. It has been claimed that Los Blancos do not have the financial power to compete with the Reds in the race to land the Polish superstar.

Lewandowski’s Brilliant Record In German Football

Lewandowski is having another outstanding campaign at Bavaria as he has continued to bang in goals for fun for Bayern over the past ten months. The Poland international has scored 45 goals and provided four assists in 37 matches for the Munich giants this season across various competitions.

The 33-year-old has continued to excel as a centre-forward by averaging 5.0 shots, 1.2 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Bundesliga. He has even been decent with his link-up play up top, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 77.9% in the German first division (stats via whoscored).

Should Real Madrid Step Up Their Efforts To Land Lewandowski?

Lewandowski remains a lethal finisher in the attacking end of the field and can still set up some inviting chances for others around him. The 128-time Poland international has got a wealth of experience and the winning mindset to help Los Blancos maintain their dominance in Spanish football over the next few years.

Thus, Real Madrid should think about stepping up their efforts to sign Lewandowski, especially if they fail to recruit Erling Haaland from Borrusia Dortmund in the summer.

The Bayern Munich centre-forward would serve as an excellent, short-term signing and could even help the Madrid giants win the UEFA Champions League trophy once again in the coming seasons. He could even serve as an ideal replacement for Karim Benzema if Carlo Ancelotti decides to move him on in the summer.

The Polish talent will add plenty of goals to Los Blancos‘ frontline and might bring even more silverware back to the Spanish capital in the future. At 33, Lewandowski has got a few good years left in him and could be a brilliant addition to Ancelotti’s match-day squad if Los Blancos can find a way to fund a move for him at the end of this campaign.
