Following the meet, Zahavi openly admitted the Bayern number nine wanted a new challenge and a change in his professional career.

"Robert feels he needs a change and new challenge in his career," Zahavi said.

The Red Devils now join Chelsea on the hunt for the lethal marksman with Stamford Bridge ready to replace new signing Alvaro Morata after a miserable performance from their main striker in his debut season.

Following the resignation of Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane, an overhaul of players in Madrid is highly inevitable with the European champions looking eager to revamp their front line.

Lewandowski would be an ideal replacement for the ageing Karim Benzema who managed to bag only five goals in the 2017/18 La Liga season.

It still remains to be seen where Lewandowski will land and there is no doubt the striker is on hot demand after bagging 29 goals in 24 games last season for Munich.
