Manchester United to sign Robert Lewandowski from Dortmund – report
Manchester United are set to sign Robert Lewandowski from Dortmund, according to the Daily Mail [link]
According to the paper, the Polish star has indicated to friends that he would like to move to Manchester United. Lewandowski, 24, has been one of Dortmund’s star players in their back-to-back Bundesliga titles.
It is believe that the transfer fee will be little more than the initial £12million they paid for Japanese attacking-midfielder Shinji Kagawa in the summer. The Dortmund star has scored 9 goals in 13 Bundesliga matches this season and has also managed three assists.
Manchester United were keen on signing Lewandowski before securing van Persie’s transfer from Arsenal – it seems Dortmund are reluctantly willing to let the Polish striker leave.
With Manchester United currently heavily dependant on Robin van Persie, the club may want a partner for the flying Dutchman. As the Premier League’s top scorers, the goals have been certainly been in abundance but a long-term option like Lewandowski would be ideal for Manchester United.
