Manchester United linked with Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski
Manchester United could boost their attacking talents yet further this January with the addition of Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski.
Reports in today's Daily Telegraph claim that Sir Alex Ferguson and his assistant Mike Phelan will be in attendance at the Etihad stadium to watch the Poland international when his side take on Manchester City in the Champions League this evening.
Manchester United were heavily linked with the 24-year-old across the summer after Lewandowski followed up his crucial role in delivering the Bundesliga title to Dortmund with some impressive displays at Euro 2012. The acquisition of Robin van Persie dampened the rumours, with suggestions that United went as far as submitting a £16m offer which Dortmund rejected.
Lewandowski, who has scored 31 goals in 72 league games for his club, will have a year to run on his contract at the end of the season, a situation United may be able to exploit. The Red Devils took advantage of Shinji Kagawa's diminishing contract to sign him from the Germans over the summer.
Should Lewandowski arrive at Old Trafford, it could spell the end for either Nani or Javier Hernandez, who have both struggled since the arrivals of Van Persie and Kagawa.
Chelsea have also been linked with Lewandowski should it become clear a transfer is possible.
