Carlo Ancelotti urged Bayern Munich to keep Robert Lewandowski at the Allianz Arena before agreeing to replace Pep Guardiola at the Bundesliga side, according to AS.
Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all said to be interested in Lewandowski, who has bagged 23 goals in 26 appearances this term.
The striker’s agent was recently spotted at the Bernabeu for Madrid’s win over Getafe and speculation has been rife as a result.
However, Ancelotti reportedly requested that the Bayern board keep Lewandowski as a condition of taking the reigns at the club.
It wouldn’t send the best message to the fans if Bayern let Guardiola leave only for Lewandowski to follow shortly afterwards.
The likelihood is that the Polish forward will stay at the German side for the time being unless a ridiculous offer was involved. While Man United should always be targeting the world’s best players, they may have to look elsewhere for a ‘superstar’ signing.
