Man Utd on alert as Dortmund talks with Lewandowski stall

A break in contract talks between Borussia Dortmund and Robert Lewandowski could give Sir Alex Ferguson encouragement to move for the Poland international again after attempting over the summer to bring the striker to Manchester United, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Lewandowski’s current contract expires in 2014 and progress on agreeing an extension has been slow. The Dortmund chief executive, Aki Watzke, has admitted the club are considering their options is fresh terms are not agreed, a stance the Mirror claims has caught the attention of Ferguson, who is said to be a long-standing admirer of Lewandowski.

United made a £16m offer for the 24-year-old over the summer, only for their interest to be rebuffed by the reigning Bundesliga champions. United later turned their attention to Robin van Persie and duly signed the Arsenal captain, but if Lewandowski is put on the market by Dortmund, United are likely to be prime contenders for his signature.
