Man United Reach Agreement to Sign Borussia Dortmund Forward Robert Lewandowski

Italian reports state that Old Trafford side have made a deal with Bundesliga side.

Italian source Tutto Mercato are reporting that Man United have reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund to sign Polish international Robert Lewandowski next summer ahead of the 2013/14 season.

The 23 year old striker had been strongly linked with a move to Man United in the run-up to the Euro 2012 finals but no deal was reached and it appears that Lewandowski will remain at his Bundesliga side for the coming campaign. The powerfully built forward netted 30 goals last term as he helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to a domestic double.

Sir Alex Ferguson may well feel the need to beef up his attacking options having released Michael Owen and seen Dimitar Berbatov plead for a Man United exit. With Javier Hernandez struggling for form after a successful first season at the club a move for extra firepower makes a great deal of sense.

Perhaps the knowledge of having Lewandowski ‘in the bag’ is behind Ferguson’s apparent reticence at allowing Bulgarian international Berbatov from leaving this summer. The former Tottenham man will see his contract come to an end next summer, which would therefore allow further room to be made to theoretically welcome Lewandowski to Old Trafford.
