Borussia Dortmund may decide to sell Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski in the summer rather than lose him for nothing when his contract comes to and end, according to Sky Sports News.

The report claims the Polish striker has 18 months to run on his current contract and has shown no signs he’s ready to extend that deal, leading to suggestions he wants to quit the Bundesliga champions.

Sky Sports suggest that Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Lewandowski in recent months and Dortmund executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted the club will decide at the end of the season whether to keep hold of the striker to boost their chances of securing a place in the Champions League again, or cash in early and receive some money for the 24-year-old.

“As often as I am talking to Robert, I do not have the impression he wants to leave us.

“We will have to make decisions in this case at the end of the season. We may decide on economical factors.

“Would it be best to cash in a big fee? Or would it be even better to keep Lewandowski to ensure we are more likely to qualify for the Champions League with him in our side, as this would guarantee us big income?

“It’s a decision we will have to take. It’s our decision. It’s not something to be decided by others.”

Watzkeis quoted as saying by Sky Sports

Lewandowski has been a hugely impressive performer over the past couple of seasons with his goals helping Dortmund secure back-to-back Bundesliga titles. He averages almost a goal every other game, with 53 goals in 110 appearances for the Germans, and at 24 he’s got plenty of time to develop his game further.

I’d love to see him in the Premier League next season but will he end up at Old Trafford? He’ll be competing with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie but should Sir Alex Ferguson lure him to Manchester, the United boss will have an impressive array of strikers at his disposal.
