Manchester United are reportedly targeting moves for Bayern Munich duo Thiago and Robert Lewandowski.

The Red Devils have signed three players so far this window, viz. Diogo Dalot, Fred, and Lee Grant, but are yet to bring in a marquee name that would improve the squad’s overall quality.

United have been consistently linked with Gareth Bale throughout the summer, as the forward’s Real Madrid future continues to hang in the balance. But whether he will seek a departure entirely depends on how important a role new boss Julian Lopetegui offers the Welshman.

The Mancunian giants, meanwhile, continue to look for major additions, and according to the latest report from The Independent, Bayern Munich stars Thiago and Robert Lewandowski have been identified as potential summer signings.

Despite having signed Fred and secured Marouane Fellaini’s future with a new contract, United seem to have targeted Thiago to further improve their midfield department. The player was linked with the Reds back in 2013 as well, until he decided to snub then manager David Moyes and reunite with Pep Guardiola at Bayern.

As per the report, Thiago is currently waiting for a chance to return to Barcelona. But if no offer from Catalonia comes in, Manchester could very well be his next destination.

Along with the Spanish midfielder, United are also interested in Robert Lewandowski, who remains one of the best strikers on the planet.

However, the 29-year-old’s goalscoring antics have naturally attracted attention from all across Europe as well, with Chelsea and Real Madrid also rumoured to be in the race for his services.

Bayern are supposedly ready to part ways with both these aforementioned players, and not many clubs apart from Manchester United have the need as well as the resources to pull off these major signings.
