Manchester United still in race for Polish hitman

Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund striker

Robert Lewandowski could still sign for Manchester United in the summer despite being poised for a move to Bayern Munich.

The 24-year old is considered to be one of the best strikers in the world at the moment, with a phenomenal 2 goals to a game ratio after scoring 60 goals in 121 games for German champions Borussia Dortmund.

But Alex Ferguson has been interested in Lewandowski for a few seasons and has made no secret of the fact that he wants to sign the star striker.

It was suggested last week that the Polish national would be signing for Bayern Munich in the summer, but his agent Cezary Kucharski recently speculated that United are still very much in the race.

“Many clubs are interested in the player, in particular  Manchester United,” he told The Sun.

“Bayern Munich? I know something, but no further details.”

He also went on to deny that he had any contact from Juventus after it was rumoured that they had enquired about the player.

“In June, we’ll see, but a move to Juventus is a rumour. No one from the club has spoken to me,” the agent added.

Robert Lewandowski’s contract runs out in May 2014 and with no new deal with Dortmund on the cards it looks likely that he will leave in the summer. However, only time will tell whether he’ll be plying his trade in the Premier League soon.
