Bundesliga striker agrees in principal to Manchester United transfer
Manchester United transfer news: Robert Lewandowski set for Old Trafford switch?
Robert Lewandowski has agreed ‘in principal’ to join Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
Goal.com ‘understands’ that the Polish international has already agreed a deal to swap Borussia Dortmund for Old Trafford at the end of the season, despite Sir Alex Ferguson having a plethora of attacking options at his disposal.
Lewandowski will follow in the footsteps of Shinji Kagawa if he does indeed complete a move to the Red Devils, with the Asian playmaker swapping the German champions for the Premier League runners-up in the summer.
Lewandowski is said to have agreed a five-year deal at Manchester United, according to the report, with the move expected to cost between £12 and £14 million.
Ferguson is claimed to be a ‘long-term admirer’ of the player, the report claims, having made a personal trip to watch the player in Champions League action against domestic rivals Manchester City earlier in the campaign.
With 15-goals already to his name this term, the 24-year-old is sure to add another dimension to the Manchester United attack, and will be competing for a place in the side along with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck.
He would also become only the second Pole to play for United, after Tomasz Kuszczak's six-year spell at the club between 2006 and 2012.
