Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has urged Robert Lewandowski to join Manchester United and form a frightening partnership up front with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lewandowski is nearing the end of another sublime season at Bayern Munich having struck 48 goals but his future with the German giants is uncertain.

The 33-year-old has one year left on his current contract with talks over an extension dragging on -with the striker said to be pushing for a two-year deal and a salary increase.

United meanwhile are in the market for a new centre forward with 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo their only reliable option as the 2021-22 season draws to a close.

Reports have suggested United favour a move for a younger option, with Benfica’s Darwin Nunez said to be on the club’s shortlist.

But Kuszczak, who spent five years at Old Trafford between 2007 and 2012, believes Lewandowski should be an option having discussed the move with his countryman in the past.

‘It would be fantastic to see him at Manchester United,’ Kuszczak told Metro.co.uk courtesy of Bet365.  

‘I’ve had conversations with him about it and when he was back at Borussia Dortmund. He had options during his previous move as his contract was expiring. I know for a fact that he was thinking about leaving Germany and going somewhere else.

‘I know he loves Spanish football and has a connection with Real Madrid. We’ve always said that someone who plays for Bayern Munich is one of the best in the world and obviously he’s gone there and won everything there is to win.

‘We played in the Polish national team and had different managers over the years and Robert was a fantastic leader. He was the one which held the team together. You hear people say, ‘Bayern Munich is full of great players, it’s easy’, but he’s played well everywhere he’s gone.

‘I’d love to see him at Manchester United, but we’ve spoken about that, and it would be fantastic if he could come and link up with Ronaldo. Him and Ronaldo upfront would be something.’
