Man United to be snubbed in striker hunt

Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is set to be turned down by Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski in the summer, according to The Sun.

The Polish striker will instead opt to stay in Germany and join the runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich and their new boss Pep Guardiola.

Lewandowski has fired his way into the spotlight over the past two years in the Bundesliga and this season’s prowess in the Champions League will have bumped up his price tag significantly.

United are keen to add another world class striker to their squad as Wayne Rooney seems happier sitting in a deeper role, leaving Robin van Persie as the lone striker.

Lewandowski has just one year left on his Dortmund contract and would be available for around £25million, but the striker has his sights set on staying in Germany and joining current team mate Mario Gotze who has already signed a deal taking him from Dortmund to Bayern.
