StoryCristiano Ronaldo Urges Bayern Munich Striker to Join Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has risked the wrath of Bayern Munich supporters by asking star striker Robert Lewandowski to join him at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Lewandowski is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world. His presence at Bayern Munich has helped the club overcome the disappointing form of Thomas Müller this season. Lewandowski rescue once again proved his worth by scoring one of the goals in the 4-2 defeat for Bayern in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final meeting between the two teams. After the end of the game, it has been reported that Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos tried to persuade Lewandowski to consider a move to Madrid in the summer.

These reports are likely to anger Karim Benzema, who has been the club’s first choice striker since his arrival in 2009. The Frenchman, though, has been suffering from inconsistent or poor form in recent seasons. Even though he is the favourite player of president Florentino Perez, it has been reported that the club may consider offers for the striker. Lewandowski may be brought in as a replacement, but it will not be an easy transfer.

The striker recently signed a contract worth around £75 million with Bayern Munich. Madrid will have to spend a lot of money in transfer fees and wages in order to bring him to the Spanish capital.

Lewandowski’s contract does not run out until the summer of 2021. He has managed to score 47 goals in just 46 games for Munich this season. Yet, the former Borussia Dortmund striker, who came to the Allianz Arena on a free transfer, will not be happy with the campaign, as Bayern Munich will be going out of the Champions League even before reaching the semifinals. Lewandowski is still searching for his first Champions League winner’s medal despite having played in the finals.
