Ex-Manchester United winger Luke Chadwick is keen for his former club to get involved in the race to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer.
The Polish international, who scored 48 goals last season, is believed to be open to leaving Germany. However, while Chadwick feels the Red Devils should do all they can to snap up the 32-year-old, he fears Chelsea could have an advantage in the race to sign him:
“I’m sure all the big hitters in the Premier League will be looking at him. He’d be a great signing for United, we’ve mentioned Haaland and Kane, but he’s the other one who’d really offer that volume of goals that are realistic targets.”
“Chelsea have been linked with a few players and Tuchel’s career in Germany might give him that personal edge, but he’s certainly another number 9 who could add something to any squad, and would give United that X-factor to help them win trophies. If he is available I’m sure United would be interested and would try and be involved if a bidding war takes off.”
While any team in the world would love to have someone like Lewandowski in their team, it must be pointed out that United already have one veteran striker available to them in Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan international has signed a new deal keeping him at Old Trafford for another year. There would be some merit, though, in going after Lewandowski next summer if Cavani leaves. The Bayern forward will have one year remaining on his contract at the German club if he stays for one more season so that could be the right time to make an offer.
