Real Madrid Closing In On 29 Y/O Manchester United Target: 3 Alternatives Including This Serie A Ace!

Real Madrid are getting closer to securing the services of Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski next summer. According to recent reports, the Galacticos has agreed a ‘deal in principle’ to sign the Poland international amidst interest from a whole host of clubs which includes Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Bundesliga ace has been in sensational form for the Bavarians since his move to the Allianz Arena in the summer of 2014. The 29-year-old has featured in 36 matches for Jupp Heynckes’s side this season, scoring 32 goals and providing 4 assists in all competitions. At 29, he still has a good few years left in him to play at the top level which Los Blancos could look to utilise in the coming years.

The Polish ace still has three years remaining on his current contract with Bayer but a change of agent in recent weeks has given rise to speculation linking him with a summer move out of Munich with Real Madrid ready to pounce on his services. Some sources are now claiming that the veteran forward is ready to snub a move to the Premier League in favour of a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium next summer in a reported two year deal with the option of a third year which can be activated by the La Liga club.

With the Galacticos on the verge of sealing a blockbuster deal for the Manchester United target, let’s take a look at three potential alternatives for Jose Mourinho to consider ahead of the summer transfer window.

Harry Kane

The English forward has been in sensational form for Tottenham Hotspur in the last few years. He has developed himself into a prolific goal-scorer and at 24, he still has his peak years ahead of him which the Red Devils could look to utilise in the coming years. Kane has featured in 39 matches for Spurs this season, scoring 35 goals and providing 4 assists in all competitions.

Timo Werner

The 26-year-old German forward has been lighting up the Bundesliga with his performances for RB Leipzig this season. He has caught the eye with some dazzling displays so far during the course of this campaign which has seen him score 17 goals and provide 6 assists in 36 matches for the Bundesliga club in all competitions. Werner has immense potential to be one of the best forwards in world football and if given the opportunity, he can fulfil his ambitions at Old Trafford.

Gonzalo Higuain

The Argentine forward has been one of the best forwards in the Serie A over the last few years during his time at Napoli and now, at Juventus. He has featured in 39 matches for the Serie A giants and has found the back of the net 22 times while creating 6 assists in all competitions. At 30, the South American striker still has a good few years left in him to play at the top level which makes him an ideal option for Manchester United to consider.
