SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL MADRID SOUNDS OUT LEWANDOWSKI

REAL MADRID SOUNDS OUT LEWANDOWSKI

The local Football observers comment that one of the reasons that Spanish Soccer Club Real Madrid falls short in Champions League is that they haven't a true striker in the squad. That is, a real goal-square "goal hunter" & specialist otherwise known as a classic "Number Nine".

I agree with this opinion. Higuain & Benzema are not "true" Number Nine profiles. Higuain fails in the big occasions & is more a "pitbull" style forward, while Benzema is more skillful & his natural area is just outside the goal square. It seems the Real Madrid Directives & technical staff are now aware of the need for a "classic striker" & will comb the European Market for next season.

Mentioned the above, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez sounded out last Tuesday night - after the Champions League semi final game  - Borussia Dortmund Polish striker Lewandowski. Apparently, the Real Madrid President invited the player post - match to an office at the stadium to ask & know how he would feel if Real Madrid made him an offer.

The news from Germany is that the Dortmund forward has an agreement with Bayern Munich & this will be his new destiny. However, a players representative has commented that the important element concerning his player is where he is more comfortable. This leaves the door open for Real Madrid. 

In conclusion two points:

  • Real Madrid acknowledges that the squad needs a class striker, a pure "Number Nine"
  • That Lewandowski has been approached & is on the Clubs list of possible candidates.
Stay tuned for developments.
