Manchester United have been sensationally offered the chance to sign Robert Lewandowski this summer.
That’s according to Bild, translated by The Metro. The report says that the 29-year-old wants to leave Bavaria this summer, with the Red Devils and Chelsea interested in signing him. Real Madrid are also keen, and that’s apparently his preferred destination.
Poland’s #9 has scored a mightily impressive 151 goals in 195 games for Bayern Munich, but it seems as though he’s ready for one final big-money move before hanging up his boots.
We’re talking about one of the most clinical strikers in the world over the last five years. A Lewandowski-esque player isn’t for sale every day.
Should United be in the market to acquire him, though? In my opinion, no. First of all, he’d probably cost far too much.
Then you have to factor in that the Red Devils spent big on making Romelu Lukaku their striker of the future. What’d happen to the Belgian if Lewandowski rocked up at Old Trafford?
At this point in time, I think United have more pressing needs; including signing a world-class centre-back and potentially bringing in a right-winger. Although it would be lovely to see Lewandowski in United red, I just don’t see it happening.
