Borrussia Dortmund have denied reports that striker Robert Lewandowski will be heading to Manchester United this summer.

Lewandowksi enjoyed an excellent season last time round as Dortmund were crowned Bundesliga champions, scoring 22 league goals in total while he also bagged a hat-trick in the German Cup final to help his side overcome rivals Bayern Munich 5-2.

Lewandowski also got on the score sheet in Poland’s opening Euro 2012 game against Greece, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Poland manager Francisek Smuda sent the rumour mill into overdrive after suggesting his leading player could be about to move to Manchester United, while the 23-year-old himself remained coy when questioned about the rumours earlier this month.

However Dortumund have moved to dispel any speculation by insisting that Lewandowski will be back playing for the German champions once Euro 2012 is over.

"It does not matter if we are to receive bids," Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke told SID.

"I have said for weeks that Robert will be back in training with us after Euro 2012 and his holiday leave. And this is what will happen."

Reports emanating from Poland continue to link Lewandowski with a move to the Premier League, but Watzke admits he is tired of fielding questions about Lewandowski’s future.

"I am tired of this speculation," he said. I really don't care what the rumours are in the Polish media. I have a detailed knowledge of media in Poland and therefore I know how I have to classify those reports."
