Recent reports suggest that Cristiano Ronaldo wants Real Madrid to sign Robert Lewandowski, and a Bayern Munich legend has now commented on the rumours.
The Portuguese has been his side's best goalscorer once again this season, but Los Blancos' main striker Karim Benzema has struggled to find the back of the net regularly.
As a consequence, many attacking players have been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the coming transfer window.
Lewandowski is reportedly high on the club's wish list, and some reports suggest that Ronaldo would be in favour of the transfer.
Former Bavarians striker Giovane Elber has insisted that it makes sense for the 33-year-old to be keen on the "world's best striker" joining his squad, but also stated that he believes the Poland international is happy in Germany.
"Cristiano Ronaldo isn't stupid," he told German newspaper Abendzeitung.
"Every club would want a player like Robert in the side. If (Real) see an opportunity to lure Lewandowski away from Bayern, they will do everything in their power to do so.
"But Bayern know all about the situation, and Lewandowski is happy and settled with his family here in Munich. He knows that he's got everything he needs at Bayern. I hope he stays with us for a long time.”
Lewandowski scored a hat-trick on the weekend and broke Elber's record as Bayern's highest scoring foreign player, but the Brazilian did not hold any grudges towards his successor, and insisted he is currently the best forward in football.
"He has incredible skills, which he showed in every game he plays," the 45-year-old added.
"You might say that it's easy to score in a team like Bayern, because the other teams are not as strong. But you still have to be there and do it.
"And he does – in the Champions League too. Right now, he's the best striker in the world."
Lewandowski has scored 142 goals in 182 games for Bayern so far, beating Elber's record, which stood at 140 goals in 266 appearances for the German giants.
