RUMOURS: Lewandowski to replace Ronaldo at Madrid

The Portugal international claimed his team-mates were not playing at the necessary level this season, with that outburst only hastening his exit from Santiago Bernabeu

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Real Madrid this summer after publicly hitting out at his team-mates, according to El Confidencial.

The Portugal international claimed not enough of the Blancos squad were playing at the necessary level following their defeat to Atletico Madrid on Saturday, with his claims having hit the dressing room hard.

And his outburst will now only hasten his departure from Santiago Bernabeu, with the hierarchy at the club already eyeing replacements.

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is top of the list to be bought in the summer, with president Florentino Perez keen to make the deal happen.
