Manchester United are reported to be waiting in the wings to enter the race for Robert Lewandowski should his move to Barcelona collapse.

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.

The club, it is said, would not be put off by his astronomical wages of around £ 400,000 per week with the player’s representatives reported to have put feelers out in the past few weeks to scope out any interest from the Premier League.

Erik ten Hag will look to rebuild United’s forward areas this summer after a disappointing year for many of the club’s attackers last season.

Lewandowski would represent a coup for a club who are staring at a dramatic rebuild.

However, should Lewandowski’s move to Barcelona not materialize, United would not be without competition.

Chelsea will look to move for a forward this summer, it is claimed, with £ 97.5m man Romelu Lukaku expected to depart the club this summer.

The west London club are able to offer Champions League football while the new owners, led by Todd Boehly, are reported to have granted Thomas Tuchel a significant amount of money to rebuild his squad this summer.

After Lewandowski announced that he wanted to depart the German champions this summer, with his contract up next year, Bayern Munich will not let him leave for free.

It is reported that Lewandowski will command a transfer fee of around £ 20m.

The player’s desire to leave Bavaria is in no doubt, telling reporters recently that something had ‘died’ inside of him through his desire to leave the club.

‘I’m not a selfish person,’ he said in an interview with Bild. ‘I know what I had at Bayern and appreciate it very much. I also know that I’ve been doing my best not to disappoint the club and the fans for the past eight years. After this time I feel that it is time for a new stage.

‘I respect FC Bayern and its rules. But changes, especially after such a time, are part of the life of the club and the player. I hope that does not come across as selfish. I have a contract, but I also tried to make it clear to the club how I feel.

‘I said from the start that we should look for a solution that would be good for both sides. Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world, a dream club for many great players.

‘I think it’s better for Bayern to invest the money they can get for me than to keep me until the end of my contract. I do not want to force anything, that’s not the point. It’s about finding the best solution. ‘
