Borussia Dortmund forward to make summer move to Old Trafford.
Man United set to add £18m Dortmund hotshot Lewandowski to their ranks on five-year deal
Robert Lewandowski will double his earnings as a Manchester United player after moving a step nearer landing his dream move to Old Trafford.
He is set to accept an offer of £20.5million in wages to join the Barclays Premier League side in the summer.
Borussia Dortmund have settled on an £18million fee for the Polish striker, who has long been pursued by Sir Alex Ferguson.
According to German newspaper Bild, the 24-year-old will sign a five-year contract at Old Trafford worth around £4.1m annually.
Sportsmail has led the way with the transfer of Lewandowski to United, with our exclusive story at the end of last month detailing how he had told friends he would be leaving Dortmund.

One would imagine that the continued pursuit of 24 year old Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski would mean that Sir Alex Ferguson would be set to lose one of the four top notch attackers he currently has in his armoury.
With Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez scoring goals regularly and with youngster Danny Welbeck available as a back-up option it’s not immediately obvious quite where Lewandowski would fit into Man United’s attacking plans but there is no doubting that Ferguson is a big admirer of the powerful marksman.
Man United have had no problems hitting the back of the net this term, racking up 48 goals in 19 Premier League fixtures, ten more than any of their rivals. However with Rooney adopting a more withdrawn striking role and Van Persie nearing 30 perhaps Ferguson feels the need to plan for the future.
Lewandowski netted 30 goals last term to help Jurgen Klopp’s side seal a domestic double and the Polish international has continued that rich vein of form this season even though Borussia Dortmund have fallen off the breakneck pace set by leaders Bayern Munich.
The Warsaw born striker has scored 14 goals in 23 matches during the current campaign and has 15 goals in 50 appearances for his national team.
