- Man United will have to pay Lewandowski £505,000-a-week if they sign him
- The Bayern Munich striker has also been linked with Real Madrid this summer
- The 29-year-old has be slapped with a whopping price tag of £70 million
Robert Lewandowski will have to be in the same wage bracket as Alexis Sanchez if Manchester United are to sign him, according to reports.
The Red Devils and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the forward who wants out of Bayern Munich this summer.
The Bundesliga champions are prepared to offload the 29-year-old who scored 29 league goals last season but have slapped a whopping £70m price tag on his head.
United lured Sanchez away from Manchester City in January with a stunning £505,000-a-week contract, and Lewandowski’s camp believes their man is worth similar numbers, say the Daily Star.
However, according to Marca, the Polish captain prefers a switch to the Bernabeu if he gets his wish to leave the Allianz Arena.
Lewandowski's super-agent Pini Zahavi has met with the Spanish giants about a potential deal for the striker.
The European champions are keen to add a top class striker following the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo and the future of Karim Benzema still unclear.
Welshman Gareth Bale has been promised a more advanced role, but Ronaldo’s goals will be a huge loss for the Galaticos.
Los Blancos president Florentino Perez does not want to go to war with a club they have a good relationship with, despite Lewandowski's desire to move to Spain.
Lewandowski 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.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Jose Mourinho has said he hopes one target from the list of five options he gave Manchester United will arrive before the August 9, transfer deadline.
United were thrashed 4-1 by Premier League rivals, Liverpool in an International Champions Cup match at Ann Arbor.
