Manchester United after Polish striker

Manchester United are hoping to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich despite the striker's agent saying he is not interested in the move


After splashing £52m on three players, Manchester United are not done yet with this summer's transfer window.

United are in pursuit of the signing of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski who Louis van Gaal has targeted to replace Robin van Persie who has joined Fenerbahce.

Having just signed veteran midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich, Manchester United are planning to go back to the Bavarians with at least £35m.

Manchester United have been told that the striker is not interested in a move to Old Trafford.

Agent of the striker, Cezary Kucharski believes Pep Guardiola has no intention of cashing in on the 26-year-old.

"I think it would have to be a very high offer, definitely higher than €50million (£35m)," Cezary said when asked about interest from United on Polish TV:

"Robert is one of the most valued strikers on the market who guarantees goals, guarantees assists, excitement. He has shown that over many years during his career.

"Every year he is an even better player and plays at a higher level and that is very important for other clubs because he has credibility and guarantees at least 30 goals a season."

Kucharski also revealed that his client is not even considering a move to Manchester as it would be disrespectful to his current employers, although.

"There must be a signal from the club, from Munich," Kucharski said.

"There is no such signal so we are not thinking about it, because even thinking about a change of club would be unfair in my opinion to the current employers.

"There is no reason, apart from money to be honest, to even think about it.

"Bayern would have to think about why they would get rid of Robert Lewandowski? It seems to me that there is no reason to even think about it.'
