For the past few months the stories linking Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski with a move to Old Trafford have been gathering enough momentum to move them from ‘unlikely’ to ‘possible’ to even ‘probable’.
Despite Sir Alex’s insistence that Wayne Rooney is going nowhere there’s still a chance the United boss will want to sign Lewandowski, perhaps he could be seen as another step towards that elusive third Champions League the manager seeks so desperately.
lately though it seems Manchester City could also be in line for the Polish striker, with stories in the press that Edin Dzeko is set to move to Dortmund in the Summer, some form of swap deal would make sense, especially as the two aren’t all that different in styles.
With Mario Balotelli already departed and Carlos Tevez seemingly on the move this Summer City could certainly do with a striker of the class of Lewandowski and a deal involving Dzeko could be beneficial to all parties.
When asked if Dzeko was heading to Dortmund Roberto Mancini had this to say:
“At the moment, there is nothing. In the end, maybe, I don’t know. In the summer, it could be possible,”
Hardly a denial, as the Bosnian striker is reportedly fed up of playing second fiddle to the likes of Tevez and star striker Sergio Aguero.
With City missing out on Robin Van Persie to United last Summer it wouldn’t be a shock if the ‘Noisy Neighbours’ went all out to grab the signature of the sought after Lewandowski sooner, rather than later.
