Robert Lewandowski’s agent has poured cold water on speculation linking the Borussia Dortmund striker with a transfer to Manchester United this summer.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for the prolific striker, who scored all four of Dortmund’s goals in their emphatic 4-1 Champions League victory over Real Madrid last week.

Bayern Munich are also understood to be in the race for the 24-year-old’s signature, with the forward’s contract set to expire at the end of next season.

But Malik Barthel appears to have dashed Sir Alex Ferguson’s hopes of snapping up the striker by admitting a move to the Premier League for his client looks unlikely to materialise this summer.

“I can tell you only one thing – Robert is interested in the future coming to the Premier League,” Barthel is quoted as saying by the Guardian.

“The Premier League is very interesting for Robert. How long is the future, I cannot say to you. I think this summer is not the future.”

The news comes after Ferguson last week appeared to open the door to a move for Lewandowski, who has scored 35 goals this term.

“If the right player comes along you have to be prepared to make a move,” said Ferguson. “I can find room for anybody here as long as they have the required quality.

“I am not sure Lewandowski will be sold to Bayern now. The Dortmund fans are not going to be happy and I don’t think they will sell to their main rivals.”
