Bayern will only cash in on the centre-forward at the end of the season only if they can sign a replacement of his quality.

The Poland international wants a move to Real Madrid but the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo and the plans to shift the Portuguese to the centre-forward position could thwart his desire to don the Real Madrid famous white shirt.

Lewandowski signed for Bayern Munich in 2014 and has made 122 appearances and scored 103 goals for the Bavarians since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund.
