Manchester United have emerged as the top contenders to sign Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski, according to latest reports in Germany.
The Polish international recently dumped his former agent Cezary Kucharski after 10 years of partnership to bring Pini Zahavi on-board, which suggests the Bayern Munich star is definitely keen to secure a move away from the Allianz Arena.
The German magazine claimed that Lewandowski could be headed towards the Premier League instead of La Liga, as English heavyweights Manchester United are ‘the only club’ to have approached Bayern for their superstar’s signature.

Lovell tweeted: “Manchester United are the only club to have made an approach for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski while Real Madrid dither according to Kicker in Germany.”
Meanwhile, Los Blancos are not yet completely out of the race to land the prolific marksman, with Chelsea also keeping a close look at the player’s situation.
However, as per ex-Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder, the forward is too valuable to the Bundesliga Champions, and thus, any deal is highly unlikely, if not impossible.
Metzelder said: “There isn’t a pain barrier [on the transfer fee] because Robert Lewandowski is irreplaceable. There isn’t an adequate replacement available on the market. Therefore, they will not allow him to leave. Normally, Bayern do not give up their top players and they do not need the money.”
