Real Madrid reportedly made last gasp €81 million bid for Robert Lewandowski
Real Madrid reportedly made a last-gasp €81 million bid for Borussia Dortmund striker, Robert Lewandowski, but the Polish international opted to sign with arch-rivals Bayern Munich on a free transfer this summer.
According to German newspaper, ‘Der Spiegel’, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez commissioned British lawyer, Colin Pomford, who is an expert in these types of big-money acquisitions, to sign the Polish international to a six-year, €9.5 million per year deal, which would give Lewandowski a €10 million signing fee, while paying €14 million in commission.
The report goes on to say that Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness caught wind of the proposed “immoral offer” and alerted Borussia Dortmund of Real Madrid’s desire to have the player sign a pre-contract before the winter transfer window officially opened up.
It was officially announced by Bayern Munich that Lewandowski had signed a five-year deal with the reigning Bundesliga champions.
