Manchester United have been linked with Polish striker Robert Lewandowski for a number of months, however a deal has never materialised.
But the whole saga has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the Red Devils.
If there there’s one place United don't need any more recruits in, it’s the striker's department.
Robin van Persie, whom United purchased last year, has fit in very well atOld Trafford and guided them to their 20th Premier league title, winning the Golden Boot award in the process.
The Dutchman was so good in his debut season that he even managed to replace veteran Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney as United’s main striker.
Plus, Javier Hernandez has been waiting too long to make his break into the first-team, having to be satisfied with the ‘super-sub’ tag.
Danny Welbeck also yearns for a chance to make first-team appearances on a more regular basis, and youngster Angelo Henriquez has also returned from a loan at Wigan and will be vying for a first-team spot too.
To summarise, United have two of the best strikers in the world (Rooney & Van Persie), an athletic and versatile striker (Welbeck), a striker who never disappoints whenever he gets the opportunity to prove himself (Hernandez) and a youngster who could be a huge star in the future (Henriquez).
So where would Lewandowski have fit?
United would’ve sold another striker to accommodate him, but there would still have been way too many talented strikers at Old Trafford, and none of them would have liked being benched.
Instead, the Red Devils can use that money to address other problems, like a replacement for club legend Paul Scholes.
