Manchester United Interested In Bayern Munich Superstar: Another Story To Fill The Papers?

The strike force the German club is led by none other than goal machine Robert Lewandowski who simply cannot stop scoring. The German is coming off a brilliant hat-trick from the weekend and will be a handful for an average Besiktas defence who will have to be extra careful to avoid another thrashing and possibly man mark the Polish international on the night.

Amidst such hay, he has now been linked with a move to English side Manchester United. They are apparently one of the few sides besides Real Madrid interested in the Polish international and want to land him come this summer.

Lewandowski first came into the limelight under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund where he became a fearsome striker. His development continued as Bayern Munich poached him up and he helped the Bundesliga giants land several trophies.

Should the English giants be able to land the Polish forward it would definitely solve their mini-crisis at the top with Romelu Lukaku yet to prove himself on a regular basis and Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to leave the Red Devils after this season.  

However, Mourinho has been insistent he does not need attacking reinforcements having secured multiple versatile options to play as a forward in his United team. This is what he had to say.

“That’s the point, that’s the objective. The objective is now that we have only one No 9 – apart from Zlatan and let’s forget about Zlatan for the moment – we have only one No 9 and by having one No 9, now we have more No 9s.” 

“We have Alexis, Lukaku, Martial, Rashford,” the United manager explained. “Rashford can play on the left and the right, Alexis is exactly the same. All of them apart from Lukaku can play from behind as the second striker. 

“That’s why I say that it’s bad for you because you like to have things to write and speculate, especially in the summer, but I don’t want attacking players so don’t speak about attacking players that are coming here because nobody is coming here.” 

“We have Mata, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, Alexis, I don’t want attacking players,” he insisted. “Speculation in the summer you have to go to other areas, attacking players I am really happy.

This would mean that any rumour of Lewandowski moving to Manchester United should be treated with casual care for now and certainly not taken seriously as such a move is unlikely to take place in the near future.
