Robert Lewandowski's former agent has revealed the star striker wanted to play with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid a few years ago.
The Polish striker has been in superb form this season after reaching the 45-goal mark for the 2019/2020 campaign last weekend.
After his time at Borussia Dortmund came to an end, he made the direct switch to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich in 2014 although it was now revealed he was keen on Los Blancos.
“At one point in the negotiations, he no longer wanted to sign a contract with Bayern, and wanted Real Madrid instead because Ronaldo played there,” Kucharski told Polish YouTube channel Futbolownia.
“I convinced him that he had to be the number one striker at a big club.

"At Real Madrid, he would have prevailed over Karim Benzema at some point, but I couldn’t allow him to move to a club as a number two given the status he already had at that time.
“I emphasised this in all discussions, whether it was with Real Madrid, Arsenal or Manchester City.”
