Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, according to German publication, BILD.

The Polish international is reportedly set to leave Munich, with a host of major European clubs vying for his signature.

BILD are reporting that the German champions aren’t willing to listen to any bids under £175 million for their striker, which it’s thought could deter United from taking up the offer.

As well as Mourinho’s men, Chelsea and PSG are also said to be keen on the striker, but Lewandowski’s preferred destination is reportedly at European champions, Real Madrid.

Manchester United, who finished second to rivals Manchester City in the Premier League last season, will be looking to add to their squad as they chase a first league title in five seasons.

Lewandowski, who has scored 151 goals in 195 games for Bayern Munich, would be an incredible addition to Mourinho’s side and would act as another exciting option for the Manchester United forward line.

Mourinho is also said to be a huge fan of the Polish striker and the Portuguese reportedly texted Lewandowski saying he wanted the Munich man to “join” him at “any club” he goes, following Lewandowski’s four goals for Dortmund against Real Madrid, five years ago.
