Solskjaer told to make move and bring 399 goal striker to Manchester United in January
Manchester United have been urged to make a move to sign Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.
United managed to sell powerhouse striker Romelu Lukaku during the summer transfer window after months of speculation, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to delve into his transfer kitty to add an adequate forward to the front-line and lead the attack.
But there has been some rumours in the media over the last few weeks which have suggested that Solskjaer may be given some funds in the coming transfer window to add a striker to his front-line, with a number of top strikers on the agenda.
The Poland international is one of Europe’s most in-form strikers having scored 27 goals in 21 games in all competitions this season, with Bayern Munich unlikely to sell up.
Despite that, former United defender Clayton Blackmore has backed his former side to attempt the permanent signing of the 31-year-old, who now has 399 career goals in 595 outings.
“They need to get a top striker who the players can learn from,” Blackmore told the Daily Star.
“I’d like to see Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski come in. He’s 31 although still scores goals for fun.”
Look United made a big mistake during the summer window by signing a new striker but then failing to bring in another forward, and they are in need of adding a 30-goal forward to their front line in the January window if they want to get back inside the top four.
Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the game, and if United could tempt Bayern into selling the big striker, he would be the impact signing that Solskjaer could land to send a real statement to the rest of the Premier League.
He could be the answer to all their striking problems at United, at least for a short time anyway.
