Manchester United are being linked with a new striker this summer with Anthony Martial not doing the business and Edinson Cavani out of contract at the end of the season. Erling Haaland has been linked with a move, but there could a cheaper, more lethal alternative.

United could land an even more prolific goalscorer in Robert Lewandowski if they pass up on the opportunity to sign Haaland this summer.

It is claimed that Bayern Munich are willing to let their star striker leave for £69m at the end of the season.

The current holder of the Best FIFA Men’s Player award winner has once again been in sensational form this season, scoring 36 goals in just 26 Bundesliga matches.

However, Sky in Germany claim that Lewandowski is available for a move this summer, with several clubs on his radar.

United are said to be one of those, and they could afford the minimum fee of £69million Bayern have slapped on his head.

The Red Devils have more commonly been linked with a move for Erling Haaland though, with the Borussia Dortmund man 12 years Lewandowski’s junior.

The Champions League winner would no doubt be the cheaper option, and United have long been linked with Lewandowski – their reported interest dating back to 2012.

Lewandowski admitted in December last year that he held talks with then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson about a possible move.

And the Poland international admitted he wanted to join during his time at Borussia Dortmund, but wasn’t too upset a move never came about.

“After my second year in Dortmund, I had a conversation with Sir Alex Ferguson,” he told France Football.

“He wanted me to come to Manchester.

“I was very interested. I can even say I was ready. But Dortmund didn’t want to let me go.

“It didn’t upset me more than that because things were going well with Borussia.”

Lewandowski will still have two years left to run on his contract at the end of this season so it is very conceivable that he will stay put at the Allianz Arena.
