According to a recent report by the German publication Kicker (via Manchester Evening News), Manchester United are lining up a move to bring Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski to Old Trafford during the summer transfer period. The same source has also claimed that the Polish international could leave the Allianz Arena at the end of this campaign after he was left frustrated by the initial contract renewal offer from the Bavarian giants.
Lewandowski’s Prolific Season In German Football
The Bundesliga centre-forward has enjoyed another prolific campaign with the German giants after putting in a string of match-winning displays for them during this season. Lewandowski’s incredible returns in the offensive end of the pitch have put Bayern in pole position to secure another domestic league title.
The former Borussia Dortmund talent has scored 38 goals while creating 13 assists in 45 matches for the Bavarian outfit this term across multiple competitions. He is also vastly experienced at the international level having represented Poland in 104 games while registering 56 goals for them thus far.
The 30-year-old is currently the captain of the Polish national side due to his leadership skills which is one of the many reasons why he will be a perfect fit for the Reds Devils. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs more players who are willing to take responsibility for their performances and steer their teammates towards success in the coming years, so Lewandowski fits the bill perfectly.
What Will The Polish Forward Add To Solskjaer’s Team?
Lewandowski can be considered as one of the best centre-forwards in European football due to his productive returns in front of the opposition goal. The Polish frontman can hold the ball up effectively so that he can get his teammates involved in the attacking third of the pitch. He is also an unforgiving menace for the opposing defenders which makes him a feared striker in the Bundesliga.
Lewandowski’s Signing: Wise Move For The Red Devils?
The addition of a striker of Lewandowski’s ilk will undoubtedly bolster Solskjaer’s attacking options at the Theatre of Dreams. He will not only add more goals to the Man United frontline but will also inspire the younger players like Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jese Lingard to perform better next season.
All in all, it will be a shrewd acquisition for the Reds of Manchester if they can land the Bundesliga goal-getter ahead of the new campaign. However, our question is how will they manage to do this without offering the forward Champions League football.
