Polish international back on Old Trafford radar.
Man United appear to be back in with a shot of signing long term target Robert Lewandowski after Borussia Dortmund stated clearly they have no intention of selling the Polish international to arch rivals Bayern Munich according to the Daily Mail.
Dortmund’s general manager Hans-Joachin Watzke stated in an interview with Bild: ‘Robert Lewandowski will definitely not make the switch to FC Bayern in 2013. That’s final. We have informed Robert and his agents now.’
This could well leave the door open to David Moyes with Man United known to have taken an interest in the 24 year old.
Borussia Dortmund have already seen playmaker Mario Gotze complete his move to the Allianz Arena and are understandably unwilling to let another of their star turns move to the Bavarian side but could perhaps accept offers from Man United, though one would imagine that Jurgen Klopp would ideally look to keep hold of his top scorer.
Lewandowski, who has scored 66 goals in the course of the last two seasons, has just a year to run on his current contract and could therefore simply look to run down his deal and then join Bayern Munich next summer but to do so would no doubt make him public enemy number one among Borussia Dortmund fans for the entirety of the 2013/14 season.
Man United were known to be interested in the powerful forward during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign and Lewandowski could perhaps be seen as an ideal replacement for Wayne Rooney, with the England man repeatedly linked with a move away from Old Trafford having already made a verbal request to do so.
