Manchester United battle Chelsea to sign Lewandowski

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.

Acoording to Sky Sports News HQ, United and Chelsea have held preliminary talks with the Bundesliga champions for the striker.

Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague, claims both Premier League clubs have also spoken to Lewandowski’s representatives over a potential move.

Balague believes Lewandowski’s preferred choice at this stage is Stamford Bridge, but United are thought to be very keen on the 28-year-old.

The striker signed a new contract with Bayern in December, keeping him at the club until 2021, but recently said he was “disappointed” over a perceived lack of support at Bayern in his quest to become the highest goal scorer in Germany.

Lewandowski netted 30 goals last season, but missed out on the top-scorer prize to Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by a single goal.

“I was not really happy with how my team helped me. I was annoyed and disappointed with the team’s attitude,” he told the Polish Super-Express.

His agent Maik Barthel told German football magazine Kicker: “Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach (Carlo Ancelotti) gave no call to help him win the top-scorer title in the last game.
