Man United may have to wait for Dortmund star

Robert LewandowskiBorussia Dortmund insist four-goal Champions League hero Robert Lewandowski could stay at the club despite interest from Manchester United.

The Poland international further enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a stunning display, scoring all four goals in Dortmund’s 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old, who is out of contract next year, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Westfalenstadion this summer.

Bayern Munich, who have already sealed a deal for Lewandowski’s team-mate Mario Gotze, and Premier League champions Manchester United are believed to be competing for his signature.

However, speaking after the game Die Borussen boss Jurgen Klopp hinted Lewandowski may snub any summer moves away from the club.

“I do not have the feeling that Robert is on the run and we are not the ones to send him away,” Klopp told ZDF TV.

“Let’s wait and see what happens next. This performance will definitely go down in history.”

Chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke added: “Robert has a contract until 2014 and there is no exit clause like with Mario Gotze.

“It is our explicit wish to keep him until 2014. That is why we are saying no to a transfer fee. Up to now a lot of wishes have come true in my life.”
