Manchester United are ready to launch an audacious attempt to land three of Borussia Dortmund Double-winning stars, according to the Daily Mail.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson took time out from his title-showdown preparations to attend the German cup final on Saturday, with the Scot reportedly running the rule over Dortmund star Shinji Kagawa, Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels.
Lewandowski has been in sensational form this season, scoring 30 goals in 47 games to help Dortmund land their first ever league and cup double, with a 5-2 victory over Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal on Saturday rounding off an historic season.
However Lewandowski’s agent, Maik Barthel, has confirmed that while Dortmund are keen to extend the Poland international’s deal which expires in 2014, the offer on the table is not enough and that Manchester United are looking to take advantage of the breakdown in talks.
"The offer from Dortmund is not enough. I can confirm interest from Manchester United in Robert," he told Bild.
Kagawa has reportedly been a long term target for United, with the player revealing this month that he would begin a ‘new chapter’ at Old Trafford, while the Daily Mail reports that Hummels’s farther Hermann, who acts as his agent, has been invited to open talks with United now that the season is over.
Despite Manchester Untied’s interest Dortmund’s managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke remains adamant that no player aside from the wantaway Kagawa will leave the club in the summer.
“We expect Kagawa to go, but no amount of money will persuade us to sell the others,” he confirmed.
