• Robert Lewandowski could possibly leave Bayern Munich, a report said
  • Manchester United is among Lewandowski's potential destinations, but a report suggested it may not be a good move
  • The Polish striker is also linked to Manchester City and Liverpool

Manchester United could possibly sign a legendary player, but it may not be the best move to make for the English club, a report has suggested.

Aside from Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski is another world-class striker likely to become a target of big-name clubs as he considers leaving Bayern Munich for a “new challenge,” Sky Sports reported.

Providing a new update on the subject, Evening Standard’s Ian McGarry, a reputable transfer insider, bared that Lewandowski “has been offered” to top English Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.

McGarry further added that while the “interest” is mutual, Bayern Munich’s demand for the Polish forward’s exit is “far too much” for his age.

“[Robert] Lewandowski has been offered to Liverpool, to Manchester United and to Manchester City, each of whom have expressed a tepid amount of interest in the player regarding the possibility of signing him,” McGarry said on the “Transfer Window" podcast.

“However, each of them has also said that the €110 million ($128 million) which Bayern [Munich] are leaking to the German media that they would require to allow Lewandowski to leave is far too much for a player of that age,” he added.

Lewandowski, who bagged a total of 48 goals in 40 appearances last season, is arguably the best striker in the sport today.

However, in line with McGarry’s report, Manchester Evening News suggested that Lewandowski will not be a value-for-money signing for the Red Devils given his age and amount of money involved.

“The likelihood of [Manchester] United pursuing a £100 million ($117 million) for a 33-year-old next summer is slim,” the outlet said. “As good a player he is, and would certainly add goals to United's armory, the short-term financial output would not be rewarded with long-term benefits.”

Manchester City, meanwhile, is believed to be all-in in pursuing Tottenham talisman Harry Kane, but the club’s manager Pep Guardiola is also an admirer of Lewandowski.

Liverpool, on the other hand, is an unlikely destination for the UEFA Champions League winner as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp insists “it makes no sense” to bring in more players “unless” something unfortunate happens.

“You have to make changes from time to time, but then there must be room to do it,” Klopp pointed out. “We do not want more players. Unless something happens it makes no sense to add more players.”

He continued, “Everyone expects some player signings, (but) let’s go through the squad. Do you want to buy a new fullback? A new goalkeeper? We already have good players there. In midfield, we have players with a lot of experience.”
