Manchester United are planning to raid Bayern Munich again after the acquisition of Bastian Schweinsteiger from the German champions.

The Red Devils’ Dutch boss Louis Van Gaal has identified Polish striker Robert Lewandowski as his top priority striker, according to Mark Ogden of the Telegraph.

The Manchester United boss has headed to USA for pre-season with only two recognized strikers in the form of Wayne Rooney and young striker James Wilson.

Robin Van Persie has left Old Trafford to join Turkish side Fenerbahce and out of favour Mexican striker Javier Hernandez is out with a broken collar bone injury.

Manchester United were linked with the Polish forward earlier also and now many sources are linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

The Bayern striker has scored 17 goals in 30 league matches for the club and after interest from United last summer, the Daily Star says a bid is set to go in to finally get him.

The Polish striker also scored 6 goals in Champions League and 2 in DFB Pokal.

The Red Devils would have to get close to £44.7million (€63m) to tempt Bayern into selling one of their prize assets.

Bayern signed Lewandowski from their fierce rivals Dortmund on a free transfer only one year ago.

Manchester United have been linked heavily with PSG’s Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani and Lewandowski’s teammate German superstar Thomas Muller also in recent weeks.

Manchester United are on a spending spree now with 4 top signings in the forms of Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin and based on their business we have be sure that more signing are yet to happen.
