The Poland international has shown no signs of slowing down as he approaches his 34th birthday. He netted a staggering 50 goals from just 46 appearances for Bayern last season.
Hence, there are no surprises that he is attracting high-profile interest. Lewandowski is keen on making a move to Barcelona this summer, but a deal appears highly unlikely as of now.
With a year left on his contract, Bayern could reportedly sell him for £20 million, but the Blaugrana have plenty of financial concerns, and need to offload several top players before making new signings.
United are reportedly prepared to capitalise on their shortcomings, and believe they can lure Lewandowski in a similar deal to Cristiano Ronaldo. They could hand him a £400,000-a-week salary package.
It has been reported that the Pole’s family has several Manchester United fans and some of them have worked in Manchester. Whether that would be enough to encourage him to join remains to be seen.
The lack of Champions League football is a blow for United, but the club still have a big reputation worldwide. Lewandowski could be tempted to prove himself in the Premier League before calling time.
United’s main league competitors could be Chelsea, who are also eyeing a new marksman.
