Manchester United have to pay £175m to sign wantaway world-class star – report

Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich will entertain bids of at least £175million for their star striker Robert Lewandowski according to reports from Germany.

Lewa is wanted by a number of clubs after he stated that he is willing to leave the Bundesliga champions for a brand new challenge.

The Bild (h/t The Mirror) claims that any club wanting to sign the 29-year-old Polish striker will have to part with £175million and the player was offered to a number of clubs by his agent Pini Zahavi.

The report claims that Manchester United was one of the clubs that Lewa was offered to, with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain being the other sides.

Lewa won four consecutive Bundesliga titles with Bayern and picked up two more during his earlier spell with rivals Borussia Dortmund and scored 151 goals in just 195 matches for the Bavarians. The Pole will be taking part in the World Cup too and will be hopeful of a good showing in Russia.

A quality player but the price is too high

Bringing in Lewandowski would certainly add more goals to our side and possibly make us the most lethal force in Europe given that we have Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford too.

However, the price point seems to be a little too high, even though Lewandowski is one of the most talented forwards to have ever played the game of football.

Bayern slapping a price of £175million is crazy, to say the least, and hopefully, we can avoid spending this big on one single player and instead bring in reinforcements for other areas so that we have a stronger side next season.
