Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has opened up on his failed move to Real Madrid in 2018, insisting he is “happy” at Allianz Arena.
Lewandowski has solidified his reputation as one of the greatest goalscorers of his generation since moving to Bayern from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.
The 31-year-old has hit 240 goals in 289 appearances for the Bundesliga giants in total, with 49 of those efforts coming during the 2019-20 campaign.
The Blancos had reportedly identified the Bayern frontman as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, but were ultimately unable to negotiate a final deal.
Although Lewandowski admits that his head was turned by Madrid’s interest, he is certain that he took the right decision by choosing to remain at Allianz Arena.
“There was a lot of speculation at the time. Real is a great club, of course, I was thinking about it. I stayed and I do not regret it,” the Polish frontman told Sport Bild.
“We are a family and this should dispel any doubts. I’m happy in Munich.
“I am 100 per cent a Bayern player and I fully identify with it. I know how much the club stands behind me.”
