Jun 12 – Manchester United keep a close eye on Robert Lewandowski.
Report from Sun says Manchester United are interested in signing Robert Lewandowski if his dream move to Barcelona doesn’t work out. Lewandowski, 33, has publicly expressed his desire to leave Bayern Munich this summer as he has one year left on his current contract with the German giants. However, Barcelona have yet to agree a fee with Bayern and with financial constraints on the Spanish giants, it looks like they may need some time to shed players and sort out their finances to bring in Lewandowski.
With that in mind, United are lurking in the background, looking to give the Polish superstar an alternative. According to the report, United absolutely agree to pay Lewandowski $500,000 a week and a transfer fee to Bayern will not be an issue.
Is this the kind of player Erik ten Hag and United really need when they try to rebuild?
There is no doubt that Lewandowski will score over 20 goals in a season (at least), but United have attracted the likes of Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo in recent years and have failed to get the most out of both. Ronaldo was successful last season, but can he and Lewandowski come out on top and succeed in the kind of agile and flexible possession-based team that Erik ten Hag wants to create? If United sign Lewandowski, then it will look like another short-term flashy signing that they hope will impress people rather than actually create a team that can compete. This is no disrespect to Lewandowski, who is a phenomenal player, but the fact that United seem to be seriously involved with another signing like this shows that they still don’t know who they are or who they want to become.
