Robert Lewandowski And Real Madrid Reportedly Agree Terms On Move

Real Madrid took a step closer to re-energising their attacking line after reports in Spain claimed that Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski and the Champions League holders had agreed terms, after years of speculation linking the two.

Real Madrid's BBC strikeforce of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's MSN front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar were the two heavyweight attacking forces of world football for a long whilst but that 'generation' is soon to come to an end.

Whilst Barca lost Neymar in the summer the loss of form of the 'BB' and the emergence of the front threes of Manchester City and Liverpool have raised question as to the dominant specific front three.

Of course the La Liga leaders still have Messi and Suarez so they aren't exactly doing badly whilst Real still have Isco and Marco Asensio but Zinedine Zidane's side are likely to make changes to their attack this summer.

Links with Neymar and Eden Hazard refuse to go away but it looks like one of the pieces is very close to being in place. According to Mundo Deportivo the Spanish side and Bayern's Robert Lewandowski have agreed terms to a summer move.

Of course the transfer of the striker from Bayern to Real is far from guaranteed with the 12 time Champions League winners still needing to agree terms with the Bundesliga leaders and that's far from a guarantee.

The Polish striker wouldn't be cheap either. He's long been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena with Real being joined by Manchester United and Chelsea as the interested parties.

This season he's scored 23 goals in Bundesliga and another five in the Champions League, so it's no wonder that he's much wanted.

Despite still being on target to win a third Champions League title in a row this season it hasn't been a great time for Zinedine Zidane's team, especially up front where there forwards have struggled.

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 18 La Liga goals but it took him a while to get going whilst Bale and Benzema have only added 12 goals between them.

Will Lewandowski end up at the Bernabeu?
