It has been claimed in the German press that United have already agreed a five-year contract with the Poland international, and will pay his club a fee of £12m. Sir Alex Ferguson was spotted watching Dortmund play Manchester City earlier this season, with Lewandowski understood to the object of his attention.
Ferguson’s counterpart at Dortmund, Klopp, however insists Lewandowski will see out the season with his current club. He added: “I’m not afraid he will leave. Manchester United are one of many teams showing interest in him, but I have no worries.
“His contract is with us. The time when rich English clubs tried to take our players from Germany, thank God, is over. Lewandowski will still be here in January.”
Lewandowski has been at Dortmund since 2010, signing from Lech Poznan and scoring 39 goals in 81 league games as Dortmund won consecutive titles. If Lewandowski does make the switch to Old Trafford, he will be reunited with a familiar face – former Dortmund teammate Shinji Kagawa, who made the same move in the summer.
