The agent of Robert Lewandowski has rejected reports linking his client with a move to Manchester United.
Writing in the Independent, Miguel Delaney revealed that Manchester United were cooling their interest in Antoine Griezmann after receiving hints that a move would be difficult to complete.
Instead, United were turning their attention to either Bayern Munich’s Lewandowski or Kylian Mbappe of Monaco.
However, Lewandowski’s agent Maik Barthel had waved away the idea that his client could join Manchester United.
The Polish striker only signed a new contract in Munich in December, and has established himself as perhaps the finest centre forward in world football since moving from Borussia Dortmund.
“Does any top player in the world want to be a plan B?” was Barthel’s reply when asked by ESPN whether there was any truth in the rumours.
United would surely have more luck with Mbappe, but Monaco would hold out for a huge fee and there are still question marks over Anthony Martial, their last young striker signing from Monaco.
Robert Lewandowski has now scored 200 goals in German football.
103 for Borussia Dortmund
97 for Bayern Munich
