They claim that the Red Devils are ready to make a first offer for his services if he does leave Bayern.
During the latest edition of ‘Stammplatz’, BILD’s daily football podcast, reporter Heiko Niedderer intimated that Bayern should speed up the process in tying down their No 9 to an extension as a result.
He said: ‘The bosses should now quickly get down to business and extend the contract quickly.’
Niedderer added that Lewandowski is ‘surprised’ that no one reached out to him at the German giants over a new deal and that the Poland international wants clarity about his future by this summer.

Lewandowski demonstrated his never-ending class on Tuesday night as he scored a 10-minute hat-trick in Bayern’s 7-1 win over RB Salzburg in the Champions League last-16 second leg.
That treble helped him reach the 40-goal mark in all competitions for the seventh successive season.
A striker appears to be a priority for Manchester United this summer with doubts over Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford’s futures at the club. Then there is the much-publicised Mason Greenwood affair too.
