Borussia Dortmund forward to make summer Old Trafford switch.
EXCLUSIVE: Fergie lands Polish star Lewandowski from Dortmund
Striker Robert Lewandowski is heading to Manchester United.
The Poland star has indicated to friends he has set his sights on the move from Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.
After rejecting overtures from United last summer, the German club have reluctantly accepted they are about to lose their leading marksman.
With his Dortmund deal running out at the end of next season, United hope the fee will be little more than the initial £12million they paid for his former team-mate Shinji Kagawa last summer.
Sir Alex Ferguson believes pairing 24-year-old Lewandowski with Robin van Persie — and Wayne Rooney operating just behind — would give him the most lethal attack in the Premier League.

Of course Man United fans have heard stories of a deal being struck to land the Polish international before but perhaps on this occasion such talk is not premature. This source claims that a deal has been struck and that the 24 year old striker is on his way to Old Trafford at the end of the season.
Lewandowski netted 30 goals in all competitions last term as he helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to a domestic double but things have not fared so well this term for the Westfalenstadion side with Bayern Munich having already opened up an eleven point gap to their rivals. The two sides go head to head today and if the Bavarians triumph then the chances of a third successive Bundesliga title triumph pretty much goes out the window.
This hasn’t affected Lewandowski’s personal form with the powerfully built striker netting 14 goals in 20 matches thus far this term.
Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been strongly linked with interest in the former Lech Poznan forward in the past and whilst the club has a host of attacking talent, which has left Javier Hernandez having to spend much of his time on the bench, the Scot is still seemingly very interested in the Borussia Dortmund forward.
And so this source suggests a deal has already been agreed that would see Lewandowski reunited with his former Dortmund team-mate Shinji Kagawa.
