Sid Lowe doesn’t believe Manchester United should be worried about Bayern Munich and Real Madrid agreeing to a swap deal involving Robert Lewandowski and Gareth Bale.

The Wales international’s future has been a source of relentless debate over the past couple of weeks following his sensational cameo performance from the bench in Kiev.

Bale was a second-half substitute and scored a sensational overhead goal before a long-range strike to help Real Madrid ease to a 3-1 win against Liverpool FC in the final.

The 29-year-old appeared to be facing a bleak future having fallen down the pecking order at Real Madrid before Zinedine Zidane opted to stand down at the end of the 2017-18 season.

The Welsh forward has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, while Lewandowski is thought to be keen on a move to the Spanish capital from the Bundesliga champions.

However, Spanish football expert Lowe has reassured Manchester United that he doesn’t envisage a Bale-Lewandowski swap deal coming to fruition.

“Man United don’t need to anything to stop it happening because I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Bale moved to Real Madrid in a £85.7m deal from Tottenham Hotspur in the 2013 summer transfer window.

Manchester United signed Chile international Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal from Arsenal back in Janaury.
