The coming summer transfer window will be a historic one with several high profile moves expected to be made.

Some of the best forwards in the world including Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski, Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, and Romelu Lukaku are likely looking for new clubs. Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid are in the running for more than one of them.

Mbappe’s move to the Santiago Bernabeu is said to be very close to being completed, while Haaland is set to make his decision known in the next month. There is a third striker who wants to join Ancelotti’s side according to Diario AS, and it is Robert Lewandowski.

The Polish international has a contract until 2024 at Bayern Munich and does not intend to sign a renewal. He dreams of coming to La Liga and playing the final years of his career in Real Madrid colours. 

The striker’s entourage denies any chances of running down his contract and moving as a free agent. With one year left on his contract, Los Blancos would have to pay close to €50-60 million for his signing.

This season, the Bundesliga striker has found the back of the net 31 times in 27 league games. He averages five shots per game and has missed 29 big chances. Moreover, he provides 1.2 key passes per game.

Barcelona too have been linked with Lewandowski and are said to have an agreement with the player. Negotiations between the clubs have begun. However, with the player’s heart in Madrid, the situation could change quickly.

Andriy Lunin was Real Madrid’s main protagonist in the club’s narrow win over Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Lunin is going to be in focus once again as Real Madrid brace themselves for another important encounter against Barcelona.

Speaking ahead of this crucial tie, Lunin talked about how Real Madrid will put the title race to an end if they can secure a win over Barça.

Lunin on Barcelona – Real Madrid clash

“It is clear that Clásico is a very important match. We are all clear that winning this Sunday can almost solve the League,” Lunin told TVE (h/t Mundo Deportivo).

“We have prepared ourselves in the best possible way to take three points, which are very important.”

Real Madrid are indeed heading into this game with a solid eight-point lead over Barcelona in the league table.

A win this evening could help them extend that gap to 11 points, effectively ruling Barça out of the title race.

Real Madrid have attained an excellent record against Barcelona of late. Lunin, though, believes past encounters do not matter in a Clasico.

“In a match between Real Madrid and Barcelona the things that have happened are forgotten and everyone is concentrating,” the Ukrainian added.

Lunin went on to talk about Real Madrid’s gruelling schedule, with the Spanish giants coming on the back of a 120-minute encounter against Man City.

“It is true that last stretch of the season is very demanding. The team played 120 minutes in Manchester, it was good to suffer and overcome difficulties. Now we have Barça at home, with our people and we have no choice but to give everything to win,” he said.

Lunin also talked about his watered-down celebration following his penalty heroics against Man City, adding, “I am a quiet and rather shy person, but within me, I had tremendous joy. I already said after the game that I was the happiest person in the world.”

Finally, the goalkeeper was asked about his future at Real Madrid, with his current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expiring in 2025.

“Real Madrid has been a dream since I was little, but now it is time for the most important games of the season and we have to be focused because we have to get the best result from what we have left. Then we will talk about the papers (contract) and other things,” he concluded.
