Real Madrid, by virtue of being the biggest club on the planet, could sign pretty much anyone they fancied if they put their minds to it.
Until Manchester United signed Paul Pogba last summer for £89m, Real Madrid were responsible for the last five world record transfer fees stretching from Luis Figo to Gareth Bale.
And as you’d expect, they’re being linked with a number of eye-popping moves this summer for the likes of Eden Hazard and Kylian Mbappe.
Robert Lewandowski is another name mentioned, and Guillem Balague believes both Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos did their best to woo the Bayern Munich man during their controversial Champions League clash this week.
Arguably Real’s most influential players in the dressing room exchanged compliments with the prolific Polish striker and insisted there was room for him at the Bernabeu.
Lewandowski penned a new deal just a few months ago to become the highest paid player in Germany, but that has not deterred the interest from Los Blancos.
The appreciation between the two is mutual, with Lewandowski’s sister gifting him with a Madrid shirt for Christmas a couple of years ago.
The Bayern hitman has 39 goals in 42 games in all competitions and found the net in that 4-2 defeat on Tuesday night which knocked the Bavarians out of the Champions League.
It is thought Real will move for either him or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer to replace the Premier League-bound Alvaro Morata.
