It seems the new man at Old Trafford is going to miss out on Bundesliga star Lewandowski.
Long time Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski looks set to snub new manager David Moyes in favour of a move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, reports the Daily Mail.
The Borussia Dortmund striker has been heavily linked with moves to both Old Trafford and the Allianz Arena, but it now seems he is set to stay in Germany – despite his current club wishing otherwise.
Dortmund have become resigned to the fact that they would lose their Polish hit-man after Lewandowski has had another impressive campaign, netting 23 league goals in 29 matches.
The 24-year-old tops the goal-scoring rankings in Germany, despite rivals Bayern snatching the trophy back from Dortmund with a record six matches remaining.
The Munich club have already poached attacking midfielder Mario Gotze from Jurgen Klopp’s side and the 2012 champions were resisting letting another one of their prize assets head to their closest league competitors.
With reports linking Wayne Rooney with a move away from Manchester, Lewandowski was beginning to look like the perfect fit to partner Robin Van Persie up front.
Yet now it seems Moyes will miss out on the scoop of one of Europe’s top strikers and will have to look elsewhere to replace his want-away England forward.
As for Bayern, after a hugely impressive season that could still be capped off by a Champions League win, the prospect of Lewandwoski spearheading their already formidable team is mouthwatering for the fans.
That coupled with the arrival of one of Europe’s most talented managers in Pep Guardiola could make the German champions the strongest side on the continent.
