Real Madrid have now turned to 2021 FIFA Best Men’s Player, Robert Lewandowski, after Kylian Mbappe’s disappointment.
Mbappe had on Saturday made his decision to remain at Paris Saint-Germain after years of intense speculation about his future amid a link to Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old’s contract was due to expire next month and Real Madrid were looking to have finally landed the France World Cup winner, but the forward made a dramatic U-turn.
However, according to Madrid Universal via Tomas Gonzalez, the LaLiga champions have turned their attention to Lewandowski, who currently plays for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Lewandowski has emerged as a possible alternative to Mbappe.
The 33-year-old is all set to enter the final 12 months of his contract with Bayern this summer.
The Polish striker has already informed Bayern Munich that he wants to leave, and Los Blancos are now ready to take him to the Santiago Bernabeu.
But Real Madrid will have to battle Barcelona and Chelsea, who are also interested in his signature.
Lewandowski has scored 50 goals this season, including 35 in the Bundesliga
