Spanish giants Real Madrid want to sign Bayern Munich's disgruntled Germany striker Lukas Podolski during January's transfer window, according to German sports agency SID.

The summer transfer deadline expired at the end of August and Real want to sign Germany star Podolski at the next available opportunity.

The 23-year-old made just four starts for Bayern in the Bundesliga last season and has been mainly kept on the bench so far this term by new Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

Podolski, who is set to play for his country on Saturday in the 2010 World Cup qualifier in Liechtenstein, reacted angrily last week to comments from Bayern manager Uli Hoeness who said he should stop whining and accept his position as third-choice striker.

But with 55 caps and 28 goals for Germany, Podolski is desperate for first-team football and SID report Real's German coach Bernd Schuster has already agreed to sign him.

After failing to sign Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo and David Villa, from Valencia, while Brazilian Robinho was sold to Manchester City, Schuster is frustrated with his attacking options at Real.
