Manchester United have moved into the lead in the race to sign Robert Lewandowski, with German magazine Kicker claiming that the Red Devils are the only club to have made a move for the striker.
The Bayern Munich hitman dropped his agent of 10 years, Cezary Kucharski, in February and replaced him with renowned transfer broker Pini Zahavi, leading to speculation that he could be eyeing a move in the summer.
Real Madrid and Chelsea are also monitoring the 29-year-old’s situation, but former Germany defender Christoph Metzelder — who spent three years at the Santiago Bernabeu — still believes a deal is unlikely to happen.
If Bayern are tempted to do business, they may use United’s interest to bump up the price for Lewandowski. The Poland international has scored 32 goals this term and is tied to the Bundesliga giants until 2021.
