Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has made bold claims about Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The Poland international was linked with a move to the Spanish capital a few years back. However, the striker went on to commit himself to the Bundesliga giants.

He appreciated Bayern Munich and described it as the club where he reached his maximum potential in his career. The Polish striker described the Bavarians as one of the best clubs in the world.
Robert Lewandowski has claimed that he has not lost the desire to score despite impeccable goalscoring numbers at the Allianz Arena.
