Pole could now be a Red Devil by early next month.
Manchester United are said to be increasingly confident of signing coveted Borussia Dortmund front man Robert Lewandowski this summer for £25.5 million, reports the Sun.
The Poland international had been expected to join Dortmund’s arch-rivals Bayern Munich for next season, however, his employers have blocked that move from taking place, claiming that they never actually received an offer from the Bavarian giants for the striker.
However, with 24-year-old’s current contract with Dortmund only running until June 30 2014, the Uefa Champions League runners-up are believed to be desperate to offload Lewandowski when the summer transfer window finally reopens once again for business on July 1 rather than risk losing the player on a free in 2014.
And United have been informed by the Bundesliga outfit that they can have the striker, who netted an impressive 36 goals in only 48 matches in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side last season, for a fee of £25.5m, with the player himself confessing to be relaxed about the whole situation.
“I do not think that this is the final decision and I expect the situation to change,” said Lewandowski.
“I am enjoying my holiday for now but I hope things move forward pretty soon and the situation changes.
“I do not get upset about anything.”
