Manchester City plans to unleash a new £75 million strike- force on the Premier League, next season having lost their title defence to Manchester United.
City are confident they have won the £50 million battle with Paris Saint Germain for Napoli’s striker Edinson Cavani and they are now considering a move for man- of- the- moment Robert Lewandowski.
Manager Roberto Mancini believes he could soon become the favourite to land the Poland international because Borussia Dortmund already wants Eden Dzeko as his replacement. A swap deal is an option, along with cash adjustment.
The tactician savours the pairing of Uruguay’s Cavani and Lewandowski as the suitable and emphatic response by City after losing their Premier League title.
If the club eventually signs both players, Carlos Tevez’s days at the Etihad will start to countdown as City are determined to keep Sergio Aguero.
City originally lodged interest in Lewandowski who has only 12 months left on his contract last summer, when they held talks with the club’s representatives.
If City should resume talks on the player once again, they make it a three- club- race after Bayern Munich and Manchester United.
