Reports in the German Press this morning reveal that Roma tried to make a sensational move for Robert Lewandowski.
Bild claim that Giallorossi director Walter Sabatini contacted the Borussia Dortmund attempting to persuade him to sign for the Stadio Olimpico outfit.
With his contract up in the summer, the Poland international was free to discuss terms with any side of his choosing.
However, up against the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, the Lupi stood no chance as Lewandowski opted instead for a switch to the reigning European champions.
