Real Madrid are being heavily linked with Bayern Munich's world-class forward, Robert Lewandowski, and club legend, Giovane Elber, is not all surprised at such reports.
The Bayern legend believes that Lewandowski's abilities are second to none, and Real Madrid's interest in the player is not really out of the blue. Lewandowski's ruthlessness in front of goal has seen him identified as a possible 'Galactico' with the Los Blancos reportedly ready to splash out the cash.
In an interview with AZ, the former Brazil international talked about Real's interest in Lewandowski with Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly backing the move.
"This shows that Cristiano Ronaldo is not stupid," he stated, as quoted by Goal.
"Everyone wants to have such a player in their team. If they have the opportunity to get Lewandowski away from Bayern, they will do their best to do it.
"He has incredible skills and he shows them in every game.

Elber recently lost his record as Bayern's highest-scoring foreign star to the Poland international, which only goes on to show how great an impact Lewandowski's had. The 29-year-old now has 142 goals for the defending Bundesliga champions.
