Manchester United hold talks with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski – report

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United have entered talks with Bayern Munich over the possible transfer of striker Robert Lewandowski, according to sources at Sky Sports.

The Polish striker, who has previously canvassed the idea of working with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, has claimed 110 goals in 147 games for the German side since arriving in 2014.

He was reportedly disappointed and hurt by the way manager Carlo Ancelotti made no effort to help him claim the golden boot towards the end of last season.

And according to Sky Sports’ Guillem Balague, Man United and Chelsea have capitalised on his dejection by opening talks with the striker’s representatives over a possible move.

The news comes just a day after Real Madrid president Florentino Perez claimed that no bid had been received for seemingly Old Trafford bound Alvaro Morata, who wants more game time elsewhere.

His agent Maik Barthel recently noted: “Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach (Carlo Ancelotti) gave no call to help him win the top-scorer title in the last game.He was disappointed as I have ever seen him before.”

Indeed, the 28-year-old has flirted with the idea of a move away in the past, and while Bayern have proven historically difficult adversaries in the transfer market, he may feel as if a new challenge overseas is due after seven years in Germany.
