When Jose Mourinho takes over at Manchester United at the end of this year, as now looks inevitable, big money signings will surely be made to get United competitive again. One target that could be on his way to Manchester is Polish marksmen Robert Lewandowski.
The lethal striker has been playing under Pep Guardiola at Bayern but could fancy a move to the Premier League, according to the Express. Express Sport believes that Mourinho will be unveiled within 2 weeks and a massive overhaul of the club will ensue. An exodus of players and a transfer spree will regenerate the team that was so dominant under Sir Alex Ferguson.
If Louis Van Gaal fails to qualify for the Champions League next season, it could seal the Dutchman’s fate and Mourinho could be immediately installed. With Manchester United looking some way off qualification, Jose might be sitting confident that the verbal agreement to have him installed will be completed.
The Manchester Evening News say that Lewandowski received a text from Mourinho in 2013 saying ‘I want you to join me in any club I go to.’ He went to Bayern but the text must mean Jose is interested.
“It is a huge compliment for me that a manager with such a big name is texting me this way,” Lewandowski revealed to France Football. “One year earlier I also spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson and that was definitely a great feeling. Maybe I’ll play in England or Spain one day.
“But, if I committed to pursuing my career in Munich, it’s because I considered it the ideal club at which to move up a level and to win more trophies. The fact that every season they reach at least the semi-finals of the Champions League impressed me.”
