Manchester United are still keen on Robert Lewandowki but the striker is ready to snub the Red Devils’ interest in order to secure a move to Real Madrid, according to The Independent.
The Primera Division gaints currently are not allowed to register any new signings until 2017, after being sanctioned by FIFA over a breach of their transfer regulations regarding minors. Real have appealed the decision, but it’s not sure their ban will be lifted.
Still, Lewandowski is determined to prove himself outside of Germany and is looking at Real to hand him that opportunity, despite United’s long-standing interest in the services of the Polish star striker.
The Old Trafford’s team will be kicking themselves as they had agreed a deal in principle with Borussia Dortmund to sign Lewandowski back in 2012. However, United decided to pursue Robin van Persie instead, leaving the Poland international to join Bayern on a free transfer at the end of the 2013/2014 season, said The Independent.
In fairness to the Red Devils, the acquisition of Robin van Persie was key in the club winning the league in his first year at the club, but at the moment Lewandowski is seen as one of the best strikers in the world, while the Dutchman is unhappy in Turkey.
