Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski 'going to Manchester United'
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is on his way to Manchester United this summer, according to his national team coach Franciszek Smuda.
Media sources from across Europe have linked Lewandowski with a move to United following a season in which he plundered 22 league goals as Dortmund retained their Bundesliga title.
He was also instrumental in the club’s German Cup success, scoring seven goals in the competition, including a hat-trick in the 5-2 demolition of Bayern Munich in the final.
And if Smuda’s remarks are anything to go by, United have made a move for the 23-year-old Poland star and expect a deal to be sealed.
“‘Lewy' is going to Manchester United, Kuba [Jakub Blaszczykowski] also somewhere in England, [Lukasz] Piszczek to Real [Madrid],” Smuda told Reuters.
“They [the players] have a goal and they want to grow. I base the squad on them.”
Lewandowski’s agent admitted last month that United had shown an interest in his client, but he would not divulge any further information with regards to a possible transfer.
Maik Barthel told Goal.com: “We acknowledge the interest of Manchester United in Lewandowski. I cannot confirm discussions about the financial terms."
Lewandowski himself recently admitted that he craves a move to the Premier League, adding further to the speculation that he could be making a switch in the near future.
He said: “I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League as it is direct and fast.”
If Lewandowski secures a move to United, he will be following Dortmund teammate Shinji Kagawa, who will officially join the Premier League giants at the end of June.
