Borussia Dortmund have suggested they may allow Arsenal and Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski to leave for nothing in 2014 rather than sell him in the summer, reports the Independent.

The Polish hitman has become one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe after leading Dortmund to successive Bundesliga titles.

However, the 24-year-old has less than 18 months to run on his current contract and has so far been unable to agree terms on a new deal leading to speculation over his future, with both Arsenal and Manchester United credited with interest.

Dortmund were expected to sell Lewandowski next summer rather than lose him for nothing the following year, but CEO Hans-Joachim Watze has claimed it may make more financial sense for the German club to hold the striker to his final year and let him leave for free the following summer.

“It is a simple numbers game. It could make financially more sense to play a good season with Lewandowski instead of selling him and receiving a high transfer fee,”

“We are under no financial pressure to act on this.”
