Robert Lewandoffski to Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Robert Lewandowski has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United for the past six months with the Borussia Dortmund striker looking likely to leave the German side this summer.

And Ferguson recently admitted that United are indeed interest in signing Lewandowski but why would United need another striker in a squad that already possesses a phenomenal quartet? He showed why with an emphatic four goal haul against Real Madrid last night.

lewandowski1 8′ – Lewandowski steered a whipped cross in on the full stretch and made it look easy. It was a difficult chance to take but he took it with aplomb.  It is the trademark of a great striker to make a difficult chance look easy, something he did all night. lewandowski2

50′ – It isn’t hard to see why Lewandowski is held in such high regard from this goal. A sublime first touch is only bettered by the calm, controlled finish. In a crowded box, he found space and looked as cool as ice – another hallmark of any great striker.lewandowski3

55′ – Just when you think Lewandowski can’t play any better on the night, he goes and scores this. 3 touches is all it takes for him to control the ball,  turn into space away from two oncoming Madrid defenders and rifle the ball into the roof of the net.   It was a goal that embodied everything you want from a striker.lewandowski4

67′ – And to top it off, Lewandowski kept his cool and ferociously struck the ball home from the spot to make it four on the night for himself and Dortmund. No messing about – just laces through the ball.

Manchester United would be foolish not to be interested in him. As Ferguson always re-iterates, he always look for value and availability in the transfer market – look no further than Lewandowski. Players like him don’t come around very often.

Last season, I didn’t think we needed to sign a striker and van Persie came along. Nine months later, United were crowned Premier League champions. This season, I don’t think we need to sign a striker so we’ll do the same thing and sign another one.

And judging from his performance tonight on the biggest of stages, Ferguson will certainly be keeping further tabs on Lewandowski ahead of what is going to be another busy summer for United.

Do you think Lewandowski would be a good signing for Manchester United? Have your say

Lewa has already agreed a deal to go to Bayern. They have an option to take him on a free in a year or pay a fee this summer.

As for what United need, it’s fairly obvious….a left and potentially right sided winger / attacking midfielder. Someone to complement Carrick and Kagawa in the centre and potentially further experience at left back to reduce the workload on Evra.

It’s almost shameful to see United “fans” claiming that they need to sign Strootman and Rodriguez……I can pretty much guarantee that these guys have never seen the respective stars play a match let alone a full season. Just because the gossip columns link a player to United, that does mean our fans go and spread the gospel of Strootman.

The dream scenario for United is the capture of Bale for anything short of £60m…That or the re-capture of CR7. Neither of those are very likely so, in reality, at large bid for Sandro and a lot of game time for Zaha is something that I can see happening.

That plus a long, drawn out saga over the transfer of Neymar before he joins Barca, is my prediction.

Fergie should have gone for lewandowski instead of van persie bcos he his young and can still offer manU with quality strikes 6or a very long time.

Lewandoski has to come as the cover up 4 van persie not forgeting modric & james or de maria

Idris mohammed 04/25/2013 - 17:01

No doubt lewadoski is a very good player but he is not our problem now ,our major problem is defensive mildfilder , wing nd a good defender cos ferdinand,vidic are old so we need people to replace them though smalling ,evans,jones are there to replace them but still we need another defenders that could serve as back bone In case of injury.

Amazing to have best players at Old Trafford like Strootman and Lewandowski. I wish my dreams come true! Man Utd needs two wingers in addition to the above to Keep Utd shine bright forever.

Amazing to have best players at Old Trafford like Strootman and Lewandowski. I wish my dreams come true! Man Utd needs two wingers in addition to the above b’se Nani, Valencia and Young have shown they can not do any more for Utd. It has been a bogus season for them and I wish them a good exit from Old Trafford.

larry 04/25/2013 - 02:26

I think. United need a midfielder like kevin strootman aswell as 2 defender,1 right back as a cover up replacement for raphael and a central defender. ,and we also need a striker like lewandoffski who can also.provide united with at lease 20 goals in a season,incase super van persie is injured,so rooney can play is natural possition as a free role not a converted striker
