United Set To Beat Chelsea To £12m Lewandowski
With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Man Utd look to beat Chelsea to the signing of Robert Lewandowski.
Lewandowski has become one of the most highly-rated strikers in Europe after another excellent year with Borussia Dortmund last season, where his 30 goals in 46 games helped them to a Bundesliga and German cup double.
This form has attracted interest from clubs all over Europe, with United and Chelsea among the sides linked with a move for the 23-year-old Polish hitman.
The Mail claim that United have now been in touch with Dortmund and offered to pay £12m for Lewandowski, but crucially they are willing to delay the move until next summer allowing Dortmund to keep their star man for this seasons champions league campaign before selling him for a decent fee next summer when he will only have one year left on his contract.
Lewandowski has made it clear he would relish a move to the Premier League and hinted he may not sign a contract extension, so this deal would appeal to the German outfit.
However, it will be a huge blow to Chelsea who are desperately trying to sign a new striker to replace Didier Drogba and the big Pole was high on Roberto Di Matteo’s wish-list.
United have strong connection with Dortmund after the signing of Shinji Kagagwa earlier this summer, and hope this will help them secure a deal that would suit all parties.
