Prolific Pole could still make Old Trafford switch.
Manchester United have been given hope in their quest to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski after the Bundesliga club’s CEO performed a dramatic u-turn.
Hans-Joachim Watzke said on Monday that the 24-year-old Poland international would ‘definitely’ be staying with the Champions League runners-up this summer, despite interest from United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
Lewandowksi, who bagged an impressive 34 goals in the Bundesliga and Europe this season including a stunning four goal haul against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg, has made no secret of his desire to leave Dortmund this summer.
The striker reportedly wants to join Bayern but Dortmund have made it clear that the Poland international will not be allowed to follow £33m playmaker Mario Goetze to the Allianz Arena.
However, Watzke has admitted that Lewandowski could still move abroad despite his claims the forward was remaining at Westfalenstadion.
“The state of affairs has not changed,” Watzke told ruhrnachrichten.de.
“However, the window for those interested is not open for long; we need to plan ahead.”
