Robert Lewandowski is a hot property in Europe, and losing out on the lethal goalpoacher is not a luxury by any means. The Bayern Munich hotshot, who has remained a Real Madrid target for quite some months, has now caught the attention of Manchester United and PSG.
The Poland international, who made heads turn in awe as he scored five goals in nine minutes, in a Bundesliga game for Bayern against Wolfsburg this season, is likely to be one hot property in the January transfer window.
German magazine Sport Bild reported that the Red Devils, who are in desperate need for a lethal frontman at the moment, have joined the race, along with Real and PSG, for signing the Polish hotshot before the start of next season.
Reports have also surfaced that the Los Blancos are working behind the scenes to land the former Borussia Dortmund striker to the Santiago Bernabeu next summer. Also, French powerhouses PSG are seeing Lewandowski as an ideal replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is likely to leave the Stade de France next summer.
The French champions are also believed to offer a contract worth â‚¬15m to Lewandowski. The 27-year-old three-time Bundesliga winner has a contract until the summer of 2019 at the Allianz Arena. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted that the star striker has received interest from Real Madrid.
However, the player is not for sale.
"I can imagine Real Madrid is interested in Lewandowski. But it's pointless," Rummenigge told Bild. "He has a contract running three and a half years. I can imagine as well Robert will stay even longer. One look at the expiry date of his contract and I am not worried a bit."
Lewandowski has 23 goals in all competitions this season from 25 games for Bayern.
