It’s been a difficult start to the summer for Man Utd, with their side yet to really make the immediate splash that most fans will have wanted.
Jose Mourinho has a core group of players that he can rely on, but it’s clear that a big job still lies ahead of him. He needs to improve the team even more, and a few major acquisitions could be just the ticket.
Naturally, at this time of year, it’s always exciting to see who may be leaving and joining their respective clubs, and one player that looks on course for the former option is Robert Lewandowski.
As of yet, his destination – if he even does end up leaving – remains to be seen, but you can bet that the Man Utd fans on Twitter are eager for him to move to Manchester.
The Pole has been sensational over the last few years, and he’s always been amongst the most deadly players for club and country. A stunning 29 goal league tally last season goes some way to indicating the sort of form he’s in.
Man Utd, of course, already have Romelu Lukaku to call upon, but that doesn’t appear to be putting fans off. Indeed, some are viewing him as the perfect partner or, indeed, rival, for the Belgian hitman. One fan is also drawing parallels between him and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Given both are lethal and have a strong physical presence, that’s not a bad comparison to draw, and the Red Devils did miss the Swede at points last season – and so replacing him makes sense.
Take a look at what the Man Utd fans have had to say below…
For me man Utd should go for lewandowski and convert lukaku to make shift right wing, lukaku is fast and can cross and can score, or we can switch to 3 – 5 – 2 formation, if lewandowski's available and wants to leave Bayern, we should be at the front line for him, my opinion

However, we say what having Lukaku injured means. If we're in for someone like Mandzukic as a back-up striker, then fine. Otherwise, we SHOULD be looking to sign Robert. It would be crazy to let Real have him without a fight. We definitely have the financial muscle to compete.

For me would be brilliant signing lukaku and Lewa upfront with Sanchez just behind is a deadly attack

Lewandowski = The ‘Perfect’ replacement for Zlatan. Maybe we could try and play 2 Strikers up front together (3:5:2)? Lukaku could benefit from not having to hold up the ball all the time plus IF we sign decent Wingbacks (Dalot/Sandro) who can cross then we could be awesome #mufc
