Atlético Madrid and Spain forward Álvaro Morata was offered to Bayern Munich as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, according to Sport1’s Kerry Hau.
However, the 29-year-old is not considered an option by Bayern Munich, who see no like-for-like replacement for Lewandowski on the current market after being linked with Sébastien Haller, who has since joined Borussia Dortmund, and Stuttgart’s Saša Kalajdžić – a player whom Bayern bosses aren’t convinced by.
Per the report, it was clear that Bayern had no interest in signing Morata and concrete discussions between all parties didn’t even take place. The Spain international has spent the last two seasons on loan at Juventus and has two-years remaining on his current contract at Atlético Madrid.
Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move for Cristiano Ronaldo. The 37-year-old wants to leave Manchester United but speaking to Kicker, Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn stated that Ronaldo doesn’t fit into Bayern’s philosophy. Therefore, a move for the Portuguese forward is unlikely to materialise.
Negotiations between Barcelona and Bayern are expected to continue for Lewandowski, who has one-year remaining on his contract, but the Bundesliga side are adamant that the 33-year-old won’t leave for anything less than €50m.
