Real Madrid’s three-man striker shortlist includes Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.
For Los Blancos, the January transfer window might be crucial. They’ve been linked with some of the most sought-after players in the world, and it’s still unclear who will join them in Madrid.
Real Madrid has named three strikers on their shortlist: Robert Lewandowski, Erling Haaland, and Harry Kane. Kylian Mbappe has also been linked with the former Champions League champions. While Real Madrid are the clear favourites to sign the French sensation, PSG is expected to interfere with the transfer.
As early as 2018, rumours began to spread Lewandowski had been linked with a move to Real Madrid. However, the proposal did not come to fruition.
According to recent rumours, the Polish international has instructed his agent to put any Real Madrid offer first. Lewandowski intends to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
In the Bundesliga, Erling Haaland has been a force to be reckoned with. He is one of the world’s most dangerous hitters. Next summer, he wants to leave Borussia Dortmund. Haaland has been pursued by several European clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United.
That the Norwegian is interested in joining Real Madrid, the arrival of Haaland would be highly beneficial to Real Madrid. Since joining the Yellow Wall in 2020, he has had 74 goals in 76 outings.
So far, Harry Kane hasn’t had the best season. The Tottenham Hotspur striker, on the other hand, is regarded as one of the top finishers in the world. He was linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer, but the deal fell through.
Real Madrid is also interested in the English international. According to reports, Manchester City is still interested in Kane and may consider negotiating with Spurs on a summer deal.
If Madrid goes all-in for Lewandowski, PSG, Manchester United, and Chelsea will all want to sign Haaland. On the other hand, if Haaland joins Real Madrid, Lewandowski might become a target for PSG.
