Manchester United transfer target Robert Lewandowski will not be allowed to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The Polish frontman has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford, after his national team boss Franciszek Smuda tipped his star striker to join former Dortmund teammate Shinji Kagawa at United.

With Dimitar Berbatov set to leave the club, and Michael Owen already departed, Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to be in the market for an international calibre forward to challenge Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez for a starting place.

And Lewandowski, who hit 22 goals in the Bundesliga last season, is believed to be top of his list. But Dortmund insist they will not be allowing another top asset to leave for Manchester after Kagawa departed for a fee believed to be around the £17m mark.

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has denied the rumours linking Lewandowski with the Red Devils, and said he is prepared to turn down any bids for the £40m-rated 23-year-old.

"It does not matter if we are to receive bids," said Hans-Joachim Watzke. "I have said for weeks that Robert will be back in training with our club after Euro 2012 and his holiday leave. And this is what will happen."
