Manchester United are considering a move in signing Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski in order to bolster their attacking division. The striker's contract at the Allianz Arena runs down in 2019 and his side are looking to hand him a new deal.
The Bundesliga giants have entered into negotiations with several of their players and the list includes the likes of Jerome Boateng, Thomas Muller, Manuel Neuer and David Alaba, along with the Polish international. In addition to this, their manager Pep Guardiola has been linked with a move to United as Louis van Gaal's successor.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has scored 25 goals in all competitions and Sports Bild suggests that the Red Devils are interested in landing the free-scoring striker. Any move from United will see them face competition from European giants Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Spanish capital have Karim Benzema as their first choice striker and are looking to bring Lewandowski to Santiago Bernabeu. Real are willing to make the Pole the second highest player at the club, behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
Real's interest in the Bayern star was ruled out by his agent who said, "Since Robert signed the contract at Bayern [in January 2014] we have not talked about a transfer with representatives of Real Madrid."
PSG are willing to pay him €15m-a-year (£11m, $12m) in order to secure his signature. United are going to rival the Ligue 1 winners and are ready to meet their wages in order to lure him to the Premier League.
United were interested in signing Thomas Muller in the summer and were willing to pay €12m (£8.7m, $13m) annually. However, the German international snubbed a chance to switch clubs and continued at Bayern.
Bayern remain confident that Lewandowski will sign a new deal and put the recent speculations surrounding his future to bed. The striker could use the interest from top clubs from the continent to force his current employers to hand him a better deal.
