Robert Lewandowski: Has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich or Manchester U

Rummenigge concedes that the club may have to leave their business until a little later than usual due to incoming manager Josep Guardiola and his need to settle in Germany, but confirmed that Bayern would be making signings this summer.

Bayern are currently 17 points clear in the Bundesliga title race and have one foot in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after beating Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates. They beat Borussia Dortmund in midweek to reach the DFB Pokal semi-finals.

Chairman Rummenigge, who has been in his position since 2002, dropped a hint regarding the purchase of Polish striker Lewandoswki.

Asked about speculation linking Bayern with the striker, Rummenigge told tz newspaper."I have got to know that often one big signature gives more success than three small deals.

"Look at Manuel Neuer, Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Javi Martinez.

"All of them were expensive deals, but all of them helped us a lot in just one step."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
