Former Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has urged Robert Lewandowski to remain at Bayern Munich, as rumours continue to circulate (as they have done for years) regarding a possible move to the Bernabeu for the Polish striker.
The pair played together at the Allianz Arena for three years prior to Alonso’s retirement. This summer, Lewandowski looks more likely than ever to make the move from the Bundesliga to La Liga, but Alonso doesn’t seem to sure about the idea.
Speaking to Sportbuzzer (via Marca), the Spaniard warned Lewandoswki off the move, claiming that the striker has it perfect where he is in Bavaria:
The Champions League and World Cup winner spent the vast majority of his career competing amongst the best in the world, but it appears that the level of competence in Germany is beginning to decline, and Alonso fears that it will have a negative impact on the Bundesliga.
Bayern look set for yet another Bundesliga title this season – and a first place this term finish will hand them their sixth league triumph in a row.
