Lewandowski Interest Confirmed
The agent of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed English interest in his client but claims it will take a lot more than £13m to land him
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, Robert Lewandowski’s agent has confirmed English interest in his client.
The agent of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed English interest in his client but claims it will take a lot more than £13m to sign him, according to Sky Sports News.
The Polish hitman has been strongly linked with a move this summer after a superb season in the Bundesliga last year, where he scored 22 goals in 34 games to lead Dortmund to a league and cup double.
Sky Sports claim that both Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in the 23-year-old with the player recently admitting he’d jump at the chance to play in the Premier League.
Reports over the weekend claimed that Chelsea had seen a £13m offer for the striker knocked back by Dortmund, with the Germans determined to hang on to their star man and it’s believed the club have opened talks with the players representatives over a new contract, which still has two years to run.
Lewandowski’s agent, Maik Barthel, has now confirmed there is interest from ‘top English clubs’ but claims it will take more than £13m to land the talented Pole.
“Unofficially there are offers from top English clubs,”
“We respect the contract situation in Dortmund and don’t want to take part in speculation.
“A £13million transfer fee is not suitable.”
Barthel is quoted as saying by Sky Sports
Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo is on the look out for a new front man to replace Dider Drogba, while Sir Alex Ferguson is also believed to be keen on adding to his strike force, with Dimitar Berbatov expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, but it seems the duo will have to dig deep if they are to sign Lewandowski.
