Robert Lewandowski has been tipped to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United, according to former England manager, Fabio Capello.
The Bayern Munich star has been linked with an exit from the Allianz Arena, but is under contract with the Bundesliga giants until 2023. Lewandowski has been in terrific form, scoring 69 goals this calendar year alone.
His prowess in front of goal earned him the Diego Maradona Award and TikTok Fans’ Player of the Year at the 2021 Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai on Monday, and Capello believes the 33-year-old will be a perfect fit for the Red Devils.
According to Il Posticipo, Capello was asked by Sky Sports who should win the Men’s Player of the Year at the Globe Soccer Awards.
“I hope Lewandowski wins,” he responded. “I'm a [Lionel] Messi fan but I would not have voted him. I think the Pole deserves the award. I think he is still the best striker even if Neymar, [Erling] Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe will be his competitors in the future.”
He continued: “Lewa could leave Bayern. I know there are rumors, I would see him do well everywhere, but in the Premier League there is a team that lacks a true centre-forward and it is Manchester United which now uses Cristiano Ronaldo in that position.”
Lewandowski has been linked with Manchester City and Real Madrid in recent weeks, with rumours emerging that Bayern are considering Erling Haaland a potential replacement for the Pole, should he decide to leave next summer.
