Robert Lewandowski set to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Man United as club lack ‘true center-forward’



That’s according to former England manager Fabio Capello, who believes Lewandowski would be the perfect fit for the Red Devils.

Lewandowski, 33, is under contract with Bayern until 2023 and remains a crucial first-team player for the defending champions Germany.

The Polish striker has scored sensational goals for club and country and has scored 69 times in 2021 alone.

According to Il Posticipo, Capello has been asked by Sky Sports who is expected to win the male player of the year at the Globe Soccer Awards.

“I hope Lewandowski wins,” he replied.

” I am a [Lionel] Fan of Messi but I would not have voted for him. I think the Pole deserves the price.

“I think he’s still the best striker even though Neymar, [Erling] Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe will be his competitors in the future.

Capello believes the former Dortmund striker could leave Bayern and has insisted United do not have a “real center-forward” with Cristiano Ronaldo in the post.

The 75-year-old Italian continued: “Lewa could leave Bayern. I know there are rumors, I would see him doing it everywhere, but in the Premier League there is a team that lacks a real center-forward and it is Manchester United who now use Cristiano Ronaldo in this position .

Ronaldo made his stunning return to United this summer and has scored 13 times in 19 appearances for the Red Devils.

The 36-year-old Portuguese striker has been the preferred striking option for former United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
