Manchester United will join the race for Robert Lewandowski – if his dream move to Barcelona falls flat, according to The Sun.

Robert Lewandowski is keen on leaving Bayern Munich this summer and has his heart set on a move to Barcelona.

Barcelona can only sign Lewandowski if they are able to shift some of their high earners due to their financial crisis.

Should Lewandowski’s move to Barcelona collapse, Manchester United are ready to make a move for the 33 year old striker.

It is claimed that United are watching the situation with a potential view to arranging a similar agreement that saw Cristiano Ronaldo return to Old Trafford last summer. 

Lewandowski, 33, is four years younger and is still at the peak of his goalscoring powers, with a staggering 57 in 55 games last season.

Manchester United are reportedly willing to pay Lewandowski’s £400,000-a-week wage demands.

Lewandowski would represent a coup for Manchester United but the Red Devils will face competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea should the striker’s move to Barcelona collapse.
