Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool are set to be joined by Real Madrid in the race to sign Poland international forward Robert Lewandowski this summer, according to the Daily Star on Sunday.
The Premier League trio, who currently sit fifth, fourth and eighth in the English top-flight standings, have all been linked with making mega money moves for FC Bayern Munich’s star striker once the 2015/16 campaign comes to a close later this month.
The 27-year-old, who has 75 international caps for his country and will feature for Poland at Euro 2016 in France later this year, has scored a remarkable 41 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga giants so far this season.
Lewandowski, who previously worked with current Reds boss Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund before leaving for the Allianz Arena, has become Madrid’s number one transfer target after deciding to sell France international Karim Benzema in the near future.
However the report suggests that any potential deal for the Polish star will cost a whopping £80m.
