Man United Launch Official £23.6m Bid for Borussia Dortmund Forward Robert Lewandowski According to Polish Media Reports

Sir Alex Ferguson to re-ignite move to bring Polish international to Old Trafford.

Polish source One.Pl are today claiming that Man United have lodged an official offer for Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski.

The 23 year old Warsaw born forward has previously been linked with a move to Man United prior to, and during, the Euro 2012 finals but the trail appeared to go cold and more recently Sir Alex Ferguson has switched his attentions to Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie.

Any move for the Borussia Dortmund could prove to be an implicit admission that the Old Trafford side have given up on the Dutch international and instead turned to a younger striker to beef up the Man United attack.

Ferguson did of course lure Lewandowski’s former team-mate Shinji Kagawa to the Premier League and may feel that the presence of the Japanese international could help his chances of tempting the powerfully built forward to push for an exit from his Bundesliga side.

Lewandowski notched up 30 goals in all competitions last term and has helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to back to back domestic titles in the two seasons since he moved to the Westfalenstadion from Lech Poznan.

Man United may well need another attacking option given Michael Owen’s exit, Dimitar Berbatov’s desire to leave and Javier Hernandez’s drop in form.

This source reports that Man United have made an offer of €30m (£23.6m) for Lewandowski.
