Manchester United could revive their interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, after his proposed move to Bayern Munich collapsed.
The Polish international was set to move to his current club’s domestic rivals this summer, with some reports suggesting that a deal had already been agreed.
This all but ended United’s hopes of luring the front-man to Old Trafford, after previous speculation had suggested they were extremely keen.
Now, the Red Devils may put the wheels for a move back in motion, after Dortmund president Hans-Joachin Watzke revealed that Lewandowski will not be moving to Bayern, as reported by The Telegraph.
“Lewandowski will definitely not go to Bayern in 2013,” he told Bild.
“This is final.”
Lewandowski is still likely to leave the Westfalenstadion in the coming months, with his contract due to expire next summer, while Dortmund will be desperate to receive a fee for their star man, which could allow United to swoop.
Lewandowski appeared to be intent to follow Mario Gotze to the Allianz Arena, after the playmaker agreed a stunning move ahead of the Champions League final.
Both Chelsea and Manchester City could rival any bid, with the 24-year-old regarded as one of the finest talents in European football.
