Man United lead race to sign quality 29-year-old striker

Manchester United are the only side to have registered an interest in Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski, with Real Madrid considering dropping out of the race for the prolific Poland global.

Lewandowski eclipsed former Brazil forward Elber as the most prolific foreigner in Bayern's history by notching a hat-trick in the 6-0 crushing of Hamburg on Saturday.

Elber, who has lost his record as Bayern's highest-scoring foreign star to the 29-year-old , believes such talk is an obvious effect of having one of the finest forwards on the planet on your books.

Lewandowski changed his agent in February, leading to speculation that he could be on the move at the end of the current campaign.

The former Brazil worldwide told AZ on the Real rumours, with Portuguese superstar Ronaldo reported to be backing an approach: "This shows that Cristiano Ronaldo is not stupid".

In an interview with AZ, the 45-year-old went on to say, "This shows that Cristiano Ronaldo is not stupid. Everyone wants to have such a player in their team", Elber told Abendzeitung Munich. But Bayern have been warned and Lewandowski feels very settled with his family in Munich. We know Bayern have come here with the strongest line-up possible and we will try to play with our best side.

Lewandowski, 29, has scored 32 goals in 35 appearances for Bayern this season, while Romelu Lukaku, 24, has netted 23 times in 42 outings for the Red Devils following his £75 million summer transfer from Everton.

"You could say that it is easy to score goals at Bayern, because the other teams are not good enough".

"He has everything. It is hard to say what weakness he has and what he still needs to improve". But you have to [deliver].

Besiktas are now second in the Turkish Super Lig, a position that would see them enter next season's Champions League at the second qualifying round.

German football magazine Kicker revealed on Monday that United have made an approach to sign the forward who has dominated the Bundesliga for the best part of a decade.
