Real Madrid Offered Robert Lewandowski A Crazy Contract In 2013

Real Madrid Offered Robert Lewandowski A Crazy Contract In 2013

Real Madrid offered Robert Lewandowski a contract that included some very strange details back in 2013.

Having seen his blistering goalscoring form for Borussia Dortmund first hand when he scored all four against them in the Champions League back in April, Los Blancos were keen on landing the Polish international and made an extremely lucrative proposal in December 2013.

In the seven-year contract that has been published by Polish outlet Onet Sport, Lewandowski would have earned €9.6 million yearly as well as a whopping €10.96 million bonus that he would have received the following February.

But bizarrely, the contract included a list of extreme activities Lewandowski would be banned from partaking in if he made the switch to the Santiago Bernabeu.

He wouldn't be able to hop on a motorbike or motorboat for starters, while skiing, paragliding and rock climbing was also a no-go.

With conditions like this in the proposed deal, one has to wonder why Real didn't stop Gareth Bale for playing golf all the time when they completed a world-record transfer for him the previous summer.

At the time the deal was on the table for Lewandowski, he had six months remaining at Dortmund and didn't sign on the dotted line as he had already verbally agreed to move to Bayern Munich on a free the following summer.

In six years at Bayern, he's scored a ridiculous 242 goals in 285 games - including 51 in 42 this term - the sort of form that might just have landed him his first Ballon d'Or had the award not been scrapped.
