According to high rated English journalist, Mark Ogden, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaale “really likes” Bayern Munich star striker Robert Lewandowski and will do everything to ensure he signs the Poland international striker for Manchester United before the end of the transfer window.
Recall that Van Gal moved against a permanent deal for striker, Radamel Falcao and sanctioned the sale of Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce, this has ensure the red devils are short in attack and will need to bring in another striker. Notably, Wayne Rooney now is the only experienced striker that can be available to Van Gaal though there’s the youngster James Wilson in the team’s reserve. Chicharito who is the only other striker in the ranks of the club is likely to leave the club this summer hence it is absolutely necessary that another striker is signed.
Lewandowski will be a perfect replacement for Robin Van Persie and it will be great for the red devils’ push for the league title next season if they manage to get him. A look at his stats last season shows he has a conversion rate of 21.5% in the Bundesliga last term and had a 53% shot accuracy in the Bundesliga which is a good stat when compared to other Manchester United strikers last season.
What is not clear is if Bayern Munich will be willing to sell or if the player is ready to leave Germany for the premier league. The second part should be easy though. Most players want to try out the premier league and should Bayern show the slightly willingness to let the former Dortmund striker leave, I will not be surprised if United get him.
