Lewandowski eyes place at Manchester United with Rooney's future uncertain

14 March 2013 09:29

According to reports in The Sun Rovert Lewandowski is keeping a close eye on Wayne Rooney’s situation at Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund’s Polish hotshot would love a move to Old Trafford.

Alex Ferguson bid £17million for Lewandowski, 24, last summer — but pulled out when he landed Robin van Persie.

But he has continued to keep close tabs on the striker.

Bayern Munich are leading the chase, but Lewandowski knows it would upset Dortmund fans if he moved to their rivals, plus he wants to try his luck in England.

However, a move to United will happen only if Fergie allows one of his quartet of top-line strikers to leave.

And there was renewed speculation about Rooney’s future after he was axed from the second-leg starting line-up against Real Madrid.

Dortmund have already begun their search for a replacement, with Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko high on their wanted list.
