Poland international will depart Dortmund this summer, says agent.
Premier League leaders Manchester United have been put on alert by the news that in-demand Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is set to depart the Bundesliga champions at the end of the season, says the Daily Mirror.
The Red Devils have been keeping close tabs on the player for some time now, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson even pondering a move for the Poland international last summer when he was also scouting Dortmund’s Japan midfield player Shinji Kagawa.
And now the striker’s agent has revealed that the 24-year-old is set to quit Dortmund this summer in order to try out a new challenge in his career, with Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich also thought to be keen to sign the current top scorer in the German league with 19 goals in only 27 matches.
“Anyone who has followed Robert’s career will know that he has never played at any club for longer than two years,” said the attacker’s agent, Cezary Kucharski.
“At Dortmund, he has been playing his third season.
“Anyone who can read between the lines knows what that means.”
“Robert has made his decision. He alone determines the moment when he will announce it.”
Lewandowski’s contract at Dortmund expires next summer and it is believed that he will cost somewhere in the region of £18 million.
