Manchester United face a fight to land Robert Lewandowski in the summer after Bayern Munich joined the chase for the Poland star.
Reports at the end of last year claimed United had agreed a deal to bring the forward to Old Trafford at the end of the season, but Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp recently admitted he would try to persuade him to stay with the offer of a new contract.
However, sources in Germany now claim that Pep Guardiola, who will take the reins at Bayern in the summer, has targeted Lewandowski as his first major transfer target.
Bayern, who already have Mario Gomez, Mario Mandzukic and Claudio Pizarro in their squad, are well-stocked with strikers but this will not prevent them from moving for Lewandowski.
The 24-year-old, who has been capped 50 times, scored 30 goals in all competitions last season as Dortmund stormed to a league and cup double.
