Manchester United News: The Red Devils are looking forward to being in new strikers at the club in the summer. According to the reports, Manchester United is keeping an eye on Robert Lewandowski and Moussa Dembele as summer targets.
Ralf Rangnick’s men have struggled throughout the season and their chances of reaching the Champions League next season is very low. However, regardless of the Champions League, United is looking to go big with signings in the summer.
John Murtough has already talked about the process of recruitment of a new manager is on. The club is also looking to bolster their midfield and even bring in a new centre-back in the summer window.
According to new reports, United is looking to sign two strikers. Edinson Cavani is leaving whereas Ronaldo could leave as well if United isn’t in the Champions League.
Manchester United News: What does the report in BILD say?
If BILD is to be believed, United is closely monitoring the Robert Lewandowski situation with Bayern Munich. The record English Premier League champions won’t hesitate in putting a bid if he is available.
Lewandowski has been the star man for the Bavarian club for almost a decade. However, the club hierarchy hasn’t opened talks for a new deal with the Polish striker who has less than 18 months to run on his current deal.
According to the reports, Lewandowski is surprised by the situation. The former Borussia Dortmund man wants clarity soon over his future.
The 33-year-old showed his lethal form in the Champions League a few days back. He scored a 10-minute hat-trick against RB Salzburg on Tuesday night to take his tally to 42 goals. This is the seventh consecutive year that the hitman has broken the 40-goal barrier.
What does the report in Daily Mail say?
Another name that has been talked about by United is Moussa Dembele. The Lyon is also into the final 18 months of his contract and could be available for as little as £25million.
The French club recently lost Memphis Depay on a free and looking to avoid a similar situation. The former Celtic man has scored nine times in 19 Ligue 1 games this term. He also has valuable Champions League experience and that could help United.
United’s search for a striker so early before the summer window suggests that United could be without Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani next season.
Ronaldo has been the top scorer for the club since his arrival in the summer. The Portuguese striker has scored 15 goals in 30 games. However, there are multiple reports that suggest that he might leave a year before his deal expires with the club. On the other hand, Cavani has struggled with injuries and won’t be given a new contract.
