Manchester United have reportedly joined the race to sign Poland international forward Robert Lewandowski this summer, according to Sky Sports News.

The Premier League side, who defeated defending league champions Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday, will rival The Blues’ interest in FC Bayern Munich’s star striker at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, with the hitman understood to be weighing up a new challenge away from German football beyond the summer.

The 29-year-old, who has 91 international caps for his country, has scored 29 goals and provided four assists in 34 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga leaders so far this season.

Lewandowski, who joined Munich from German rivals Borussia Dortmund back in July 2014, has netted a remarkable 139 goals in just 181 games overall for the Bundesliga giants.

However, the Polish captain is eyeing a transfer to the Premier League at the end of the current campaign, with United and Chelsea ready to battle for his signature.

Having been prolific in front of goal in Germany since 2010, Lewandowski could be set to leave the Allianz Arena this summer for pastures new, but is contracted with Bayern until June 2021, and is still valued at a whopping £72m, by transfermarkt.

Fellow European heavyweights Real Madrid (La Liga) and Paris Saint-Germain (Ligue 1) could also enter the frame, should the Poland striker be poised to leave.
