Man Utd Transfer News: Rooney Out, Lewandowski In?
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski wants to move to Manchester United this summer but his potential arrival may hinge on the future of Wayne Rooney.
Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Robert Lewandowski eyes a move to Manchester United.
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski wants to move to Manchester United this summer but his potential arrival may hinge on the future of Wayne Rooney, according to the Sun.
The Polish hitman has continued his excellent form in front of goal this season scoring 17 goals in just 22 league games so far this season to take his tally to 63 in 123 appearances since moving to Dortmund from Lech Poznań in 2010.
Lewandowski’s future has been questioned in recent months with the striker yet to sign a contract extension, with his current deal due to expire in 2014, meaning Dortmund may have to cash-in this summer or risk losing him for nothing 12 months later.
The Sun claim the 24-year-old wants to try his luck in the Premier League and would love to seal a move to United, but Sir Alex Ferguson would have to sell one of his four striker to make room for the talented forward.
The report suggests that Ferguson is a huge fan of Lewandowski’s and pulled out of a proposed £17m deal last summer after signing Robin van Persie, but is believed to be keeping a close eye on the players situation and may resurrect his interest if one of his current crop of strikers leaves this summer.
