Sir Alex Ferguson wary of Bayern Munich interest in Lewandowski
The 71-year-old has admitted that the German champions retain a “strong” interest in the Poland forward and could usurp the Red Devils in the race to sign the 24-year-old
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that the club could lose out to Bayern Munich in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.
Sir Alex has long been an admirer of Lewandowski and Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has already admitted the striker could leave the club this summer.
But the United boss is wary of the German champions’ interest in the Poland international, although he believes the situation could change once his side are confirmed as Premier League winners.
Regarding his interest in Lewandowski, Sir Alex told reporters: “Yeah, but Bayern Munich are strong with that too. We just have to wait and see where we are in terms of if we win the league. Then it may be different.”
The 71-year-old also suggested that signing the Dortmund forward may complicate matters at Old Trafford, with his squad already containing several competitive forwards.
“Big signings? You are normally talking about forwards but it’s complicated enough as it is with the forwards I’ve got,” he said.
Lewandowski has scored 31 goals in all competitions for Dortmund this season, with six of them coming during his side’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.
