Robert Lewandowski has been linked with a summer move away from Bayern Munich and Manchester United have been among the clubs linked with the striker.
After four hugely successful seasons with the Bundesliga outfit, the Polish striker is believed to be looking for a new challenge domestically.
Following a disappointing World Cup for Poland, being eliminated before the round of 16, Lewandowski may be looking to spice up his summer with a big move to another one of Europe’s giants.
Real Madrid are currently favourites to sign the 29-year-old, although United are one of several Premier League clubs also in the hunt.

While Poland were a massive disappointment at the World Cup, nobody expected much even with Lewandowski up front. He too underperformed massively, which could take a hit on his valuation this summer.
United probably won’t go as far as lodging a bid for Lewandowski as Mourinho only really needs a backup option for Lukaku, who, on the basis of this World Cup alone, is streets ahead of the Bayern man.
