Poland forward could replace Rooney at Old Trafford next season.
In-form Borussia Dortmund front man Robert Lewandowski is keen on an end of season move to runaway Premier League leaders Manchester United, according to reports in the Sun.
The Poland international has made it clear to everyone that he will definitely be leaving the Bundesliga title holders this summer to try out a new challenge, but it is as yet not known which club the giant 24 year-old will end up at.
Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich are leading the chase at present for the 24-year-old’s signature, although the player himself may in actual fact prefer a move away from Germany so as not to upset the Dortmund fans, who would not take too kindly to Lewandowski signing for their great title rivals in Bavaria.
As such, the attacker could prefer a summer move to Old Trafford, with Red Devils head coach Sir Alex Ferguson having already bid £17 million for the player last summer.
With Robin Van Persie now lighting up the goalscoring charts for the Red Devils, there may not be space for Lewandowski in the squad – unless a player leaves.
The Sun suggest that could be Wayne Rooney, with his future subject to much media speculation in the last week after being left on the bench when Manchester United hosted Real Madrid.
