Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted Manchester United are interested signing Robert Lewandowski, but fears Bayern Munich currently lead the chase.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Bayern Munich currently hold the upper hand in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.
The United boss told Sky Sports that he will think about making some big signings this summer if his side win the Premier League title, but is not confident of landing the Polish forward.
“Big signings? You are normally talking about forwards but it’s complicated enough as it is with the forwards I’ve got,” he said.
“Yeah, but Bayern Munich are strong with that [interest in Lewandowski] too.
“We just have to wait and see where we are in terms of if we win the league. Then it may be different.”
The Red Devils face the prospect of losing unsettled strikers Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez this summer, which has resulted in the club being linked with Dortmund star Lewandowski as well as Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao.
But they will face competition for Lewandowski, who is also being strongly linked with Chelsea if Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge this summer.
The Polish international is the top scorer in the Bundesliga this season, and has helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to two German league titles in 2011 and 2012, though they have lost out to rivals Bayern Munich this year.
However, he will still have the chance to impress in the Champions League semi-finals in what is likely to be his last season with his current club.
