Manchester United are leading the race to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, German media outlet Kicker is claiming, translated by the Manchester Evening News.
Apparently, the Red Devils are seriously considering a summer move to land the Poland international, while initial contact has already been made.
Although Jose Mourinho has previously stated he wouldn’t be in the market to sign an attacker, the report suggests a move for Lewandowski would be too good to turn down, although United wouldn’t have it all their own way, with both Chelsea and Real Madrid weighing up bids for the 29-year-old.
I love watching Lewandowski play, and there is absolutely no doubt that he’s a fantastic striker. However, United making their move for him just wouldn’t make any sense at this point in time.
Romelu Lukaku is in the form of his life. Bringing in Lewandowski would only disrupt the Belgian’s rhythm, and our man is five-years younger, so in my opinion, we should be putting our trust in Lukaku rather than someone who has no Premier League experience as his career is winding down.
Then you have to factor in just how expensive Lewandowski would be. I’d much prefer that money to be pumped into improving both the defence and the midfield, but it’ll be interesting to see if anymore becomes of this apparent interest.
