Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski agrees to personal terms of contract with Man Utd
Manchester United have reportedly agreed to sign in Robert Lewandowski this fall, yet the Pole’s transfer saga is still surrounded by mist. Officially it is still unclear whether Manchester United have actually paid for Robert Lewandowski’s services.
German media have linked Robert Lewandowski to a move to Old Trafford ever since the summer transfer window ended with Manchester United failing to acquire the services of the 24-year-old Poland international.
According to recent reports from Germany, Manchester United and Robert Lewandowski have agreed to the personal terms of a contract that will offer the Borussia Dortmund forward a salary of 5 million Euros each season.
The Bild (a German newspaper) reports on Thursday with news that the Robert Lewandowski was on the verge arriving to Old Trafford. The report claimed Borussia Dortmund were on the brink of agreeing to a transfer deal worth 22 million Euros with Manchester United for Robert Lewandowski, who will sign in a five-year contract with the Red Devils.
The report from Bild arrives to scene after Robert Lewandowski denied previous reports about his transfer to Manchester United. The Pole, who was signed in from Lech Poznan for 4.5 million Euros in 2010 by Borussia Dortmund, announced that no transfer deal had been agreed through his official Facebook account.
If these reports from Germany are true, it is still not clear whether Robert Lewandowski will complete the transfer move this fall or in the summers. Robert Lewandowski, who has already scored 15 goals for Borussia Dortmund this season, will join his former teammate Shinji Kagawa if he arrives at Manchester United.
It is still not clear why Manchester United want to sign in Robert Lewandowski. The English football giants are on top of the English Premier League and have one of the best attacks in the world.
Sir Alex Ferguson is the proud owner of strikers such as Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez. Moreover, Ashley Young, Nick Powell and Shinji Kagawa can also play as strikers.
The arrival of Robert Lewandowski could create a lot of friction in the Manchester United team, as players are already fighting with the club over more playing time on the field.
