A report from the Daily Telegraph suggest that Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will watch Robert Lewandowski in action for Borussia Dortmund this evening in the German sides Champions League clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
It is thought Ferguson is keen to bring the Polish international to Old Trafford in the January transfer window and will use this evening’s encounter to see how he performs on the big stage.
The striker’s contract with the Bundesliga champions runs until 2014, but it is being suggested he has no plans to sign a new-deal. Dortmund may be willing to listen offers and cash in of their star man before his contract does run-out.
A move for Lewandowski could mean that some players leave the Red Devils in the New Year and there are now doubts over the future of both Nani and Javier Hernandez.
These two players seem to be moving down the pecking order in Ferguson’s plans and their funds could allow the deal for Lewandowski to go through.
However, United may face a battle from other English Premier League sides Arsenal and Chelsea, who are both set to monitor the situation of the prolific striker.
He could find himself spoilt for choice in the transfer window.
