LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Borussia Dortmund wants Manchester United to come and get striker Robert Lewandowski, who they have no intensions of letting join arch rivals Bayern Munich this summer.
Lewandowski has made it no secret they he would like to leave Dortmund, with several top clubs in Europe keeping a close eye on his progress.
It was believed towards the end of the season that the Polish forward would be joining Mario Gotze in Pep Guardiola’s Munich side, but Borussia Dortmund have no interest in selling them to the Bundesliga champions.
“Robert Lewandowski will definitely not transfer to Bayern Munich in 2013,” Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said.
“This is final. We have informed Robert and his advisers. The Bayern case is closed because there was no written offer.
“I am not saying he will definitely stay but he will certainly not be playing for Bayern in 2013.”
The German side opens the door to Manchester United to come and take the targeted man, but warned that he will cost up to £25.5million, The Sun reported on Tuesday.
It is believed that English Premier League sides Manchester City and Chelsea are also showing interest in the player, while Spanish side Real Madrid are also said to be mentoring every movement in detail.
