Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski will see a massive increase in wages should he join United this Summer according to the latest reports.
The Polish international would still be on around £160,000 less than Wayne Rooney if David Moyes signs him despite seeing a massive wage jump.
The Sun notes:
Robert Lewandowski will more than double his money if he joins Manchester United.The Polish striker earns £2million a year — almost £40,000 a week — at Borussia Dortmund. But United would be prepared to pay him £90,000 a week — nearly £4.7m a year.
The player was expecting to follow his team-mate Mario Gotze to Bayern Munich. But Dortmund blocked that this week saying they were adamant he would not go to their Bundesliga rivals and the team that beat them in the Champions League Final. The player himself was stunned by that development but does not believe he will still be at Dortmund next season.
Lewandowski’s arrival could signal the end for Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford as the striker admitted recently that he may struggle to turn the tide in his favour with United fans after it was claimed he made a second transfer request in three years at the end of last season.
Should United sign another striker then Moyes may find it difficult to juggle five strikers at the club, with Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck, RVP, Rooney and Lewandowski all at the club. Rooney has been linked with a move to Chelsea although it’s unlikely the Reds would be willing to let him go to another English club.
