Manchester United need a big attacking turn and reports suggest they are ready to agree a huge deal to sign Robert Lewandowski.
The Poland international has stated several times that he wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer despite having a year left on his contract.

According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, attracting the striker is a priority at Old Trafford and Man United will do their best to sign the legendary striker if he does not end up joining Barcelona.
A British news source said that the Red Devils will offer Lewandowski a deal similar to the one that brought Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club last year. United will not be put off with a £400,000-a-week (£20.8m-a-year) salary.
The former Borussia Dortmund star made 46 appearances for the Bavarian team last season and directly contributed to 57 goals (50 goals and 7 assists).
He will turn 34 in August, but remains one of the deadliest players in the world. The veteran has won every domestic award in German football multiple times and was part of the Bayern Munich team that won the treble (including the Champions League) in 2020.
Last month, in an interview with Marca, retired Polish goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek claimed Lewandowski was an “incredible” player, and had been the best striker in Europe for many years.
CdS reports that the Bundesliga champions are ready to let their prized assets leave for €35m (£30m).
