Barcelona and Manchester United remain locked in talks over a move for the Dutchman with the Spanish side demanding £74million.
Lewandowski, 33, is said to have already agreed personal terms with Barca after confirming he wishes to leave Bayern Munich, and Mundo Deportivo claim all that is left is for the clubs to agree a fee.
Bernardo, 27, is also admired but will only be targeted if De Jong does end up leaving leave for Old Trafford.

Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen are expected to arrive on free transfers, although Financial Fair Play rules are currently said to be preventing them from being registered.
And finally Chelsea duo Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilucueta are also being eyes on cut-price deals.

Seven in 10 voters do not think Biden should run for reelection: Poll
Over 70% of voters do not want President Joe Biden to run for a second term, according to a new poll.
Just 29% of voters would back a reelection bid for Biden, whose approval ratings have been slipping in recent months, and 71% would discourage a run for a second term, an uptick from the 64% of adults who said Biden shouldn't run again in a mid-June poll conducted by YouGov and Yahoo.
“President Biden may want to run again but the voters say ‘no’ to the idea of a second term, panning the job he is doing as president. Only 30 percent of Democrats would even vote for him in a Democratic presidential primary,” Mark Penn, co-director of the poll, told the Hill.

While Biden's approval ratings have hit new lows, he also scored low marks on many key topics. He received a 28% approval rating on inflation, a 32% approval rating on the economy, a 43% approval rating on jobs, and an overall approval rating of 38% in the new poll.
