Robert Lewandowski tops Pep Guardiola’s list of summer targets

Published 6 Comments

Pep Guardiola wants Robert Lewandowski to join him at Manchester City in the summer.

According to The Sun, City are ready to compete with Real Madrid for the Bayern Munich star, who is valued at a whopping £75 million.

Madrid are favourites to capture the Poland international but City hope Guardiola can influence the 27-year-old to follow him to England.

The pursuit of Lewandowski is a clear signal that City expect to become a superpower under Guardiola, capable even of beating Madrid to the biggest stars.

The Guardian report that the Spaniard will be given a £150m kitty to build his perfect team in the summer. Signing Lewandowski would cut that war chest in half.

A wonderful signing on the face of it, but where Lewandowski would fit in at City remains a consideration. Sergio Aguero is the leading man and Guardiola’s systems during his time at Barcelona and Bayern featured only one striker.

The Bayern hitman has netted 27 goals in all competitions, compared to Aguero’s 16, and is a more dependable player given the Argentine’s recent injury problems.

Pogba among targets

The Sun add that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Lewandowski but are expected to miss out due to his fondness of a move to Spain or England.


City’s list of targets also includes Juventus star Paul Pogba, Bayern left back David Alaba and Everton youngster John Stones.

Guardiola’s appointment provides City with more than just the best manager of the modern era - they can also attract the world’s biggest and brightest players.
