Robert Lewandowski’s agent pours cold water on Manchester United link

The Bayern Munich forward’s career path could take him to Spain, but his representative has played down a switch to Old Trafford.

Robert Lewandowski’s agent has poured cold water on rumours linking the striker with Manchester United, telling TVN24 that it is too rainy in England for his client.

The Poland international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford over recent transfer windows, with Metro claiming that Louis van Gaal wanted the hitman in the summer.

Lewandowski caught the global gaze by scoring an incredible five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg in midweek, reminding the world of his significant talents.

Despite this, the Pole is not an automatic first-choice at the Allianz Arena, with a number of players vying it out to be Pep Guardiola’s preferred option to lead the line.

However, agent Cezary Kucharski has stated that he has a plan for his client’s career - which does not involved a switch to Manchester.

"Games like the one against Wolfsburg immensely help a player increase his value," the representative told TVN24.

"I have a plan for the rest of Robert's career in my head.

"Could that plan take him to Manchester? It's always raining over there. Munich is much more beautiful and a better place to live.

"Spain? That is quite possibly the best environment for a professional footballer.”

United have had some issues in their attack this season following the departure of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao, with Wayne Rooney struggling to find his best form.

The summer acquisition of Anthony Martial has eased these concerns to some degree, with the 19-year-old French prodigy netting four goals in his first three games with the English club.
