Fabio Capello has called Robert Lewandowski the best striker playing today and tipped the Poland international with a move to Manchester United.
The former England boss admitted that in the future, the likes of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe will certainly catch up to the Bayern Munich striker but right now he remains the greatest in his position, while he would be perfectly suited to the Red Devils.
Capello, 75, was asked by Sky Sports [via ilposticipo.it] during the Globe Soccer Awards who he felt should pick up the main award.
He responded: "I hope Lewandowski wins. I'm a Messi fan but I would not have voted him. I think the Pole deserves the award. I think he is still the best striker even if Neymar, Haaland, and Mbappe will be his competitors in the future."
He continued: “Lewa could leave Bayern. I know there are rumors, I would see him do well everywhere, but in the Premier League there is a team that lacks a true centre-forward and it is Manchester United which now uses Cristiano Ronaldo in that position.”
Capello’s call clearly fell on deaf ears and it was Kylian Mbappe who came away with the 2021 Globe Soccer award at Dubai.
Lewandowski missed out on this year’s Ballon d’Or, too, despite his wondrous achievements. The 33-year-old scored 69 goals during the calendar year, while he also helped his side win the Bundesliga title, the German Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup.
Who should Man United target next? Let us know in the comments section.
Ralf Rangnick is still looking for that new manager bounce at United. Though his side is yet to lose under this reign with four games in charge, dour performances, like 1-1 draw against Newcastle, have sparked concern.
The use of the 4-2-2-2 formation has not quite yet gelled with the team and they have been susceptible to opposition easing themselves out of their press too easily.
Ambitions of a Champions League spot at this point would be considered lofty. They are seven points off a top-four spot, in seventh spot, with Arsenal sitting their comfortably behind Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City, respectively.
