Lewandowski’s showing vs. Arsenal hints he should be Man United’s plan A

“Does any top player in the world want to be a plan B?”

Maybe Robert Lewandowski shouldn’t be Manchester United’s second choice, after all. The above comments (via ESPN) come from the Polish star’s agent in the wake of the Independent’s claim that the Bayern Munich ace is on the club’s agenda as they consider alternatives to Antoine Griezmann.

As a result of this, Red Devils supporters must have been paying real attention to the 28-year-old last night as the Bavarians demolished Arsenal 5-1 at the Emirates Stadium to secure a 10-2 aggregate victory, and Lewandowski was a key man in the north of London…

The ex-Dortmund man hit four shots at goal across the 90 minutes, one of which went in from the penalty spot to level the scores, while he was heavily involved in Bayern’s general final third play with 38 touches. He completed 80% of his 20 passes, too.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic not getting any younger, maybe Lewandowski should be plan A…
