Manchester United & Chelsea On Red Alert As Robert Lewandowski Admits He Could Leave Borussia Dortmund Next Summer

Pole could leave Dortmund next summer.

Robert Lewandowski has admitted that he could leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

The Poland striker is a long-term Manchester United target, while Chelsea made enquiries with the German club over his services earlier this summer.

Lewandowski, 24, has two years left to run on his contract but Dortmund may find it increasingly difficult to hang on to their star man, with Juventus and Bayern Munich also interested.

He told German newspaper Bild: ‘I don’t set myself any limits. I don’t know what will be after this season.

‘I can’t and don’t want to rule out anything. This would not be professional.’

When asked about interest from Bayern, Lewandowski said: ‘That will always be interesting and you have to consider it. It is such a big club’.

He added: ‘I have another two years on my contract. This is a long time. I don’t have to decide today if I extend it or not. But, like I said, I only concentrate on Borussia right now.’

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is one of the most highly-rated forwards in Europe. The Pole bagged 30 goals last season as Jurgen Klopp’s side calimed a second consecutive Bundesliga title and impressed in an average Poland side at Euro 2012.

Over the summer, the 24-year-old was linked with practically every big Premier League club, with Manchester United, Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal all thought to have expressed an interest in the forward at one time or other.

The United link is the longest and most persistent.

While the Red Devils may well have been interested in Lewandowski at the end of last season, it seems grossly unlikely they still are. Boss Sir Alex Ferguson added Lewandowski’s ex-Dortmund teammate Shinji Kagawa and Arsenal’s Robin van Persie to his squad over the summer and the Scot has boasted that United’s attack is now complete and as strong as its ever been.

With Javier Hernandez bumped down to fourth choice forward, despite a stunning first season in English football two years ago, the last thing Fergie needs is another striker.

The Chelsea link seems more promising given the Blues currently have just Daniel Sturridge to back-up lead striker Fernando Torres but somehow Lewandowski doesn’t quite seem glamourous enough for Roman Abramovic -particularly when the likes of Fernando Llorente, Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani may be available next summer.

If Lewandowski does leave Westfalenstadion, it’ll most likely be to Bayern Munich. The Champions League runners-up may have finished behind Dortmund in the Bundesliga last season but they still boast tremendous spending power and have a habit of poaching the best players from rival clubs.
