Manchester United have tried their best to replace Robin Van Persie but in all fairness, they have not been able to do so.
The retired Dutch striker is the last man to score 20 plus league goals for the Red Devils. He netted 26 times in the 2012-13 title winning campaign. Since then, we have not won the title.
Transfer: Favorites Man Utd plot move to finally sign £200,000-a-week player – Report
This season, Man Utd have relied on the strike-force of veterans like Cavani and Ronaldo. The two forwards are absolute legends but clearly past their best.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Old Trafford outfit are looking to hire the services of Robert Lewandowski.
According to Sky Germany, Man Utd have made contact with the agent to sign the Polish international, who has not yet decided whether to extend his stay with Bayern Munich or leave.
The news source have mentioned that the former Dortmund star is the highest earning player at the Allianz Arena and takes home around 25 million euros per year i.e. £400,000 a week.
Lewa has already scored 43 goals in all competitions in just 36 appearances for Bayern this term. Do you think Man Utd should move to sign him? I do not think so.
Ronaldo is 37, Cavani is 35 and Lewandowski will turn 34 in August. So, he will be yet another short-term fix that we do not need. Instead, a young and top striker should be signed for the future.
