Man Utd make second transfer attempt on Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski
Sir Alex Ferguson is keen on further strengthening his strike-force this summer. The Manchester United manager has re-listed long-term transfer target Robert Lewandowski for a winter move.
The Old Trafford boss has been pursuing the Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski since the summer transfer window. Manchester United laid a couple of bids for the 24-year-old Poland international last summer, but Bundesliga champions turned down the move.
The addition of Robin van Persie should have negated Sir Alex Ferguson’s desire to bring firepower to Manchester United, yet the gaffer sees Robert Lewandowski as an move he shouldn’t miss.
Sources have revealed there is a lot of behind the curtain action going on between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United. Reportedly, Manchester United has already prepared a €30 million (£23.9 million) bid for Robert Lewandowski.
Now, the question is whether Jurgen Klopp would let Sir Alex Ferguson steal another player from his squad?
Sir Alex Ferguson swooped in Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund during the summer transfer window in an attempt to resolve Manchester United’s midfield crisis. So far Shinji Kagawa has yet to prove his worth to Manchester United.
Robert Lewandowski, who scored 30 goals in 47 appearances last season, promises to deliver on the large scale. Borussia Dortmund’s poor performance in Bundesliga has brought second thoughts in Robert Lewandowski’s mind.
The Pole could hand in a transfer request this winter as Borussia Dortmund has little chance of acquiring silverware this season. Bayern Munich is dominating the Bundesliga this season and there is little hope of winning the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp would be reluctant to put Robert Lewandowski in the transfer market, yet if the price is right the Borussia Dortmund manager would agree to a transfer move.
If Sir Alex Ferguson does end up with Robert Lewandowski, he will have a star studded bench fighting over first-team action. Presently, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are featuring in Manchester United’s first-team.
Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez have constantly complained about clocking little time on the field. The addition of another striker will increase the fielding problem for Sir Alex Ferguson.
