Scot will now have to look elsewhere for a new forward.
New Manchester United manager David Moyes looks like suffering his first defeat as boss of the Red Devils after it emerged that in-demand Borussia Dortmund front man Robert Lewandowski would not be joining the recently-crowned Premier League champions after all, says the Daily Mail.
Poland international Lewandowski is currently one of Europe’s most coveted attackers after scoring a record-breaking four goals to help Dortmund beat Real Madrid in the first leg of their Uefa Champions League semi-final last month.
That goalscoring display alerted a whole host of big-name continental clubs to the 24-year-old’s abilities, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City also rumoured to be interested in bringing the player to the Premier League this summer.
However, it now appears as though Lewandowski will be staying in the Bundesliga instead, with German champions and European Cup finalists Bayern Munich set to seal a £25 million deal for the forward.
Lewandowski, whose contract with Dortmund expires next year, has netted an impressive 35 goals in just 43 matches in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this season.
