Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world right now. He has won seven Bundesliga titles with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. With over 200 goals during his time in Bundesliga, he is always a threat in the opponent’s penalty box. He is a perfect No. 9.
Lewandowski has revealed that he came close to signing for Manchester United back in 2012. Imagine if he would have played under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United! With the form, he is in still now, Lewandowski would have certainly bolstered this current United attack.
The 31-year-old has admitted that it was in 2012 when he came closest to moving to England, with a phone call from Sir Alex Ferguson almost sending him to Old Trafford.
The Poland international told The Guardian: “I was speaking with him after two years at Dortmund and at that time I was really thinking about a move to Manchester United. Because of Ferguson and because of Manchester United.
“Borussia Dortmund said: ‘No, that’s that.’”
“That was the first time I was thinking about the move because if you get a phone call from Sir Alex Ferguson, for a young player it was something amazing. That was a special day for me.”
Manchester United instead signed Robin Van Persie from Arsenal in 2012. He proved valuable to United but Lewandowski would have offered much more. He is still going on with the Bundesliga champions with no signs of stopping. The current United squad would have benefitted hugely if they had a No. 9 with Lewandowski’s caliber.
