Man United eye Lewandowski transfer

13Jun 2013

England - Premier League

Having made his first signing as the don of Old Trafford, David Moyes has more targets in mind, writes Christian Crowther...

David Moyes is not hanging around in the transfer market after the new Man United manager sanctioned the signing of Uruguayan right-back Guillermo Varela.

The 20-year-old, who impressed on trial at Old Trafford last season, arrives from Atletico Penarol for an undisclosed fee as competition for regular right-back Rafael.

Far from stopping there though, the Scotsman is rumoured to be weighing up bids for a string of high-profile targets to ensure that United start the season in the strongest
possible position to successfully defend their title, which they are currently rated at 3.3 to do.

With Wayne Rooney angling for a move away from the champions and 2.12 to have his wish fulfilled, it's no surprise to see United linked with other world class front men.

The equally unsettled Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is certainly on Moyes' radar after the German club categorically vetoed any possible transfer to rivals Bayern Munich this summer.

Some reports suggest that Moyes is in the process of arranging a meeting with Lewandowski's agent to assess the chances of bringing the Pole to England.

Securing Lewandowski's signature would be some statement of intent from the new Man United manager, while simultaneously disadvantaging some of their perceived rivals for the title.

Both Man City 3.45 and Chelsea 3.55 would feel the heat should the champs land the most sought after striker on the planet.

Another player that the rumour mill has linked United with is former Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas, who had to endure many hours on the subs bench at Barcelona in 2012/13.

However, Fabregas himself has tried to put pay to that speculation by telling Spanish radio: "It has taken a lot for me to get where I am, and I am not thinking about throwing it all away for nothing."

Nevertheless, with reports suggesting that the Spaniard's representatives are keen on instigating a move, this saga is far from over. One player looking certain to head out of the door is the Nani.

Increasingly marginalised at Old Trafford, the Portuguese winger is reportedly available for £8 million and would make a great signing for the likes of top-four chasers Tottenham 3.15, Arsenal 1.71, Everton 18.0 or Liverpool 3.8.
