According to Kicker, the Red Devils are leading the way for Lewandowski's signature, with Real Madrid and Chelsea also hoping to win the bid on the player, but Bayern are not expected to let him leave on the cheap.

Meanwhile, United manager, Jose Mourinho, is said to be interested in the striker since the January transfer signing, Alexis Sanchez is struggling to find form at Old Trafford.

The Chilean forward has scored just one goal in his six appearances for the Europa League champions since his move from Arsenal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way.

Mourinho assured the fans, who feel the former Barcelona forward is unhappy at the club that he is "fine" after featuring in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Germany striker, Timo Werner, has warned Lewandowski’s potential suitors to keep off this summer.

Werner is one of Europe’s hottest attacking prospects after sparkling for RB Leipzig since joining the Bundesliga upstarts in 2016. He scored 21 goals in 33 games last season and has bagged another 17 in 35 games this term.

Lewandowski has scored 100 goals in 120 appearances for Bayern Munich in the space of four years with six domestic titles to his credit.

He will be in attack for Jupp Heynckes’ side in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League clash against Besiktas on Wednesday, March 14.
