Zidane gives Lewandowski consent for Real Madrid move.
The Bayern Munich forward has been openly admired by Florentino Pérez since 2013, but now his manager has joined in and an agreement in principle is in place.
Robert Lewandowski is Real Madrid’s chosen one to lead the line next season with manager Zinedine Zidane giving the go-ahead.With all key parties in Madrid aligned, the operation to bring in the Polish striker has gathered pace with an agreement in principle already sorted with the player’s agent, the Israeli Pini Zahavi.
The Bayern forward turns 30 in August so this represents a decision to go for very much tried and tested rather than potential, a change from recent transfer policy at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Lewandowski as the priority means that Madrid have pushed back on the idea of signing Harry Kane. The club feels that the Tottenham would put a ridiculous price tag on the English striker’s head and there were also concerns that his introverted nature could make it difficult for him to adapt to new surroundings.
