Smuda: Lewy is going to Manchester United

Published Add your comment

Poland national team coach Franciszek Smuda claims his star striker, Robert Lewandowski, is on his way to Manchester United this summer.

The 23-year-old was one of Borussia Dortmund's leading lights in 2011-12, as he helped the German giants to a domestic double - the Bundesliga title and the German Cup final, following an emphatic 5-2 victory over Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski is tipped to star at Euro 2012 with host nation Poland, and all eyes will now be on a forward who netted an impressive 22 goals for Dortmund last season.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson was rumoured to be in the market for a new striker, after Michael Owen was released at the end of his contract, and Dimitar Berbatov poised for a move away from Old Trafford.

Having already agreed a deal to sign creative midfielder Shinji Kagawa in the past few days, United now look to have moved for another of Dortmund's star turns Lewandowski, if Smuda's recent comments about a number of his most influential Polish players, are to be believed.

"Lewy is going to Manchester United, Kuba [Jakub Blaszczykowski] also somewhere in England, [Lukasz] Piszczek to Real," said Smuda, as quoted on

"They have a goal and they want to grow. I base the squad on them."
