Manchester United have been given a boost in their pursuit of Robert Lewandowski after he hinted he might be ready to move on.
A report in talkSPORT claims Sir Alex Ferguson is interested in bringing the Borussia Dortmund striker to Old Trafford, but will face competition from Bayern Munich for his services.
The Red Devils boss was in the stands of the Olympicstadion in Berlin to watch Lewandowski score a hat-trick during BVB’s 5-2 DFB Pokal win over Bayern Munich and the Poland international’s comments after the game suggested a change of scenery next season.
“Of course I've heard about Bayern's interest. I do not know what will happen in two months,” he told German newspaper Bild.
“I've also thought, 'What more can I accomplish with Dortmund?' Difficult.”
The 23-year-old has had an impressive season and was top scorer in as Dortmund completed an historic league and cup double – the first in the club’s history.
30 goals this season will have had a lot to do with Ferguson’s reported interest in bringing Lewandowski in, most probably to compensate for the likely departures of Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen.
