Man United join in race to sign world-class 29-year-old striker: report

Manchester United have joined in on the race to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

That’s according to Kicker, translated by Sky Sports. The report adds that Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on acquiring the world-class 29-year-old forward.

When I first heard this story, my immediate thought was there is absolutely no chance it’ll happen as we only signed Romelu Lukaku last summer; and he’s certainly our future.

Then I remembered Jose Mourinho’s in charge and anything goes with the self-proclaimed Special One. He loves experienced players, and there probably isn’t a better #9 in world football when it comes to hold-up play, finishing and aerial ability.

Lewandowski would be a huge coup and I think he’d suit Premier League football extremely well. My concern would be that the Bavarian giants wouldn’t want to let him leave, and why would the Pole want to move to Old Trafford where trophies aren’t necessarily guaranteed?

It’d probably mean the end for Lukaku at United, too, unless Mourinho is planning to play two up front, but if that was the case, the pair are far too similar for it to work. I just don’t think this move makes any sense at this point in time, but I guess we’ll see…
