The outrageous figures behind Robert Lewandowski’s proposed move to Man United

Pole wants similar pay package to Alexis Sanchez should he decide to join Old Trafford

MANCHESTER UNITED will have to put Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski in the same wage bracket as Alexis Sanchez to stand any chance of landing the striker, according to reports.

United and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the forward who wants out of Germany this summer.

Robert Lewandowski wants to move to Real Madrid, according to reports

The Bundesliga giants are prepared to offload the 29-year-old who banged in 29 league goals last season but have slapped a whopping £70million price tag on his head.

United prised Sanchez away from Manchester City’s clutches in January with a stunning £500,000-a-week contract, and Lewandowski’s camp insists their man is worth similar numbers, say the Daily Star.

However, according to Marca, the Polish international prefers a switch to the Bernabeu if he gets his wish to leave.

Lewandowski split with agent Cezary Kucharski a few months ago to link up with super-agent Pini Zahavi, who has met with the Spanish giants about a potential deal.

Real Madrid have to solve the problem of who will score their goals now Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Juventus earlier this month

Madrid are keen to add a top class striker following the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo and the future of Karim Benzema still unclear.

Gareth Bale has been promised a more prominent role, but Ronaldo’s goals will be a huge loss for the European champions.

But despite Lewandowski’s desire to move to Spain, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez does not want to go to war with a club they have a good relationship with.

The striker who turns 30 in August has another three years left on his current deal and new Bayern boss Niko Kovacs insists he is still a key part of his plans this season.
