According to reports Manchester United have agreed terms with Borussia Dortmund for striker Robert Lewandowski.

The Daily Star claims United have agreed a £16 million deal for the marksman and will complete the deal after the tournament.

United are believed to have offered the Poland international a four-year deal worth around £70,000 a week.

The Pole will join his former Dortmund teammate, Shinji Kagawa, who is on his way to Old Trafford in a £16 million move.

So it appears that these two deals are in the bag and if so Sir Alex Ferguson has secured a couple of quality signings that help to strengthen two apparent weak points in his first team squad. Having seen his side lose their Premier League title to local rivals Man City and crash out of the Champions League at the group stage it seems clear that the Scot would feel the need to invest in his squad and this seems like money well spent.

Polish international forward Robert Lewansowski would offer Man United another striking option, with Michael Owen already left and Dimitar Berbatov perhaps ready to also make an Old Trafford exit, such a signing is clearly needed.

Javier Hernandez has had problems in his second season at the club, failing to live up to the high standard he set himself and therefore Lewandowski could be seen as a possible target man to play alongside Wayne Rooney. The 23 year old netted 30 goals last term, helping Borussia Dortmund to a domestic double.

Shinji Kagawa has been incredibly effective in his two seasons at Borussia Dortmund and Sir Alex Ferguson will hope that the Japanese international can make an impact in an advanced central midfield role, adding a more creative angle to his first team and a goal-scoring presence in an area that currently provides little in this respect.
