Manchester United have identified their replacement for Radamel Falcao with Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski emerging as their number one target.

When Falcao's loan deal expires it's understood Manchester United won't be taking up the opportunity to sign him on a permanent deal. According to the Daily Mail they will instead move for Lewandowski who has reportedly struggled to settle since joining Bayern Munich last summer. The Poland international has scored 16 goals in 32 appearances for club and country this season.

Manchester United will also be signing Nigel De Jong according to Italian website Calcio Mercato. The AC Milan midfielder, who played for Manchester City and is perhaps best known for his horrendous chest-high challenge in the 2010 World Cup final, will be a free agent in the summer. It's reported that the 30-year-old Netherlands international has shunned a move to Ajax and has already opened pre-contract talks at Old Trafford.
