Robert Lewandowski is once again a transfer target for several of Europe’s top clubs, with Man United now appearing to firm up their interest in the striker after manager Sir Alex Ferguson admitted that he was a big fan of the striker, according to Sky
Lewandowski, who earlier this week scored all four of Borussia Dortmund’s goals against Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final first leg, had been expected to opt to remain in the Bundesliga and follow former team-mate Mario Gotze to fellow European semi-finalists Bayern Munich.
But Ferguson is now hoping that Dortmund’s reluctance to sell yet another of their prized assets to their league rivals will work in United’s favour, as the iconic Scotsman hopes to lure the 24-year-old to Old Trafford in the summer.
He said: “If the right player comes along you have to be prepared to make a move. I can find room for anybody here as long as they have the required quality.
“I am not sure Lewandowski will be sold to Bayern now. The Dortmund fans are not going to be happy and I don’t think they will sell to their main rivals.
“I think they will either let his contract run out or sell him somewhere else.”
It was reported last week that the player would actually prefer a move to the Premier League, and specifically to Man United, rather than remain in Germany and move to one of Dortmund’s rivals.
