Old Trafford target hopes to make Premier League move.
MANCHESTER UNITED target Robert Lewandowski has confirmed he is eager to make a big-money move to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old’s comments are likely to spark a mad scramble for his signature, with Arsenal and Tottenham also thought to be eyeing the hit-man.
“This [the Premier League] is a league in which I would like to play and I hope that I will manage to be there,” Lewandowski told German newspaper Bild.

So loosely translated Polish international Robert Lewandowski wants to move to the Premier League and having previously been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford one can imagine the Borussia Dortmund forward would very much like to join his former team-mate Shinji Kagawa at Man United.
The 23 year old scored 30 goals in all competitions last term, helping Jurgen Klopp’s side to a domestic double. Lewandowski’s former national team boss Franciszek Smuda let slip that the forward was perhaps set to join Man United during the Euro 2012 finals, but for whatever reason talk of such a move went on the back burner but perhaps these latest comments are designed to get the matter back into the forefront.
There may well be space in Sir Alex Ferguson’s attacking armoury for another addition now that Michael Owen has been released and Dimitar Berbatov has publicly stated his intention to leave but a move for Lewandowski will not come cheap.
Jurgen Klopp has guided Borussia Dortmund to back to back titles but has still struggled to keep hold of some talents he clearly would’ve liked to keep hold of. Nuri Sahin left for Real Madrid last summer and Kagawa has also left the club so perhaps Ferguson will look to lure Lewandowski to make a similar departure in the coming weeks.
