With the wealth of attacking talent currently calling Old Trafford their home, it’s surprising to even hear that Manchester United are looking to sign another forward anytime soon.
As if the scoring exploits of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck weren’t enough, the Premier League giants are now moving closer to a swoop for Borussia Dortmund hitman, Robert Lewandowski (via Daily Mail).
At the end of the day, strikers are the often the most glamorous part of football; the players that most regularly get the glory of scoring goals, the most sought-after part of the sport.
In 26 appearances so far this season, the Polish international has pitched in with a rather prolific tally of 16 goals and nine assists across all competitions.
This is added to the incredible record of 30 goals and 12 assists Lewandowski racked up during the 2011-12 campaign, courting massive interest from Europe’s top clubs.
From his goalscoring exploits in recent years, it would be simple to see why any side would have no problem in wanting to sign Lewandowski, it’s just a matter of where he’d fit in at Old Trafford.
It’s quite possible that were the forward to become a Red Devil, it would signal the much talked about change of Wayne Rooney coming back into a role more closely linked to the midfield, allowing Lewandowski and RVP to flourish as a strike partnership.
Whatever the dynamics of the move may be, Lewandowski’s scoring records certainly point toward a talent capable of succeeding at one of the world’s biggest clubs.
