Manchester United To Pay £70 Million For Romelu Lukaku Replacement

Things start to look pretty well for Manchester United ahead of next season, as the Red Devils are set to make big changes in the roster in order to come back to the top. Several players are expected to leave Old Trafford in the summer while there are some others who will be landing there to improve the Red Devils’ level.

One of those players who won’t be in Manchester next season is Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, as he looks set to leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and go play in Italy for Internazionale; reports say that in exchange of the Belgian international, Man. Utd. would receive Croatian winger.

Moreover, the club appears to have found the proper replacement for the former Everton star in Germany, in one of the deadliest strikers in football right now. According to Kicker, United and Polish striker Robert Lewandowski had been in touch over a possible deal, although Lewandowski has been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool, as well, in recent days.

Mirror also reported that the 30-year-old striker would leave Allianz Arena for £70 million after several seasons being one of the most reliable scorers in European football. In nine years with Bayern, Robert has netted 294 goals in all competitions.

Ever since his days with Borussia Dortmund, Lewandowski was followed by every major team across the continent before Bayern Munich stole his services. Now it looks like the perfect time for him to find new challenges and United surely sees as a very good place for that. Nevertheless, we still have to wait for the end of this given the fact that United has been linked with Olympique Lyonnais’ striker Moussa Dembele in the past.

It would be interesting to see how good can Lewandowski fare in Premier League, so a move to England this summer doesn’t seem like a bad option for him either if he plays for Manchester or somewhere else.
