Reports: What Cristiano Ronaldo Told Robert Lewandowski
Ronaldo reportedly told the Bayern superstar to quit the German giants and join Real Madrid.
The Portuguese was the standout performer as Los Blancos eliminated Bayern 6-3 on aggregate from the UEFA Champions League this week.
According to AS, Ronaldo and Real captain Sergio Ramos approached Lewandowski after the final whistle and told him he should think about his future.
Both stars apparently argued that, although Lewandowski is one of the top earners at Bayern and will probably still add many domestic trophies to his cabinet, he needs to move if he wants to win the Champions League.
The 28-year-old Pole is considered to be one of the best strikers in the game, but is yet to win a continental trophy in his career so far.
With his goal in his team's defeat to Real on Tuesday, Lewandowski became the player who has scored the most goals against the Madrid club in European competition, and both Ronaldo and Ramos are reportedly of the belief that he would strengthen their side.
Real tried to sign the forward from Borussia Dortmund in 2014, but he decided to join Bayern instead.
In a bid to fend off interest from Los Blancos or other European giants, Bayern extended Lewandowski's contract until 2021 in December, with his new deal apparently increasing his annual salary from €8 million (R114 million) to €15 million (R212 million).
Real president Florentino Perez, who is a well-known admirer of Lewandowski, reportedly also exchanged a few words with the Poland striker, but only to ask about the player's pregnant wife and wish him luck for the rest of the season.
