Man United transfers: Lewandowski refuses to comment on future
Man United transfers: Robert Lewandowski remains coy when quizzed about speculation over his future beyond the summer
Robert Lewandowski remained coy when quizzed about the speculation over his future beyond the summer, insisting he is only focused on ending the season on a high with Borussia Dortmund.
The Poland striker has been heavily linked with a move away from Dortmund at the end of the season, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the 2013-14 campaign.
Manchester United are reportedly keen to lure the 24-year-old to Old Trafford, and the forward has also been linked with a transfer to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
But the forward, who has scored 36 goals in 47 games this season, insists he is not concerned about his future and is only focused on helping Dortmund secure Champions League glory against Bayern at Wembley next weekend.
“At this time I do not think about the transfer market or my future,” Lewandowski told Polish television station TVN24.
“There are still two games left this season with Borussia Dortmund and I want to win both. I will think about my future after those games and then make a decision.”
Departing United boss Sir Alex Ferguson fuelled speculation that the Red Devils could make a move for Lewandowski last month by claiming that he does not expect the striker to be sold to Bayern.
“If the right player comes along you have to be prepared to make a move,” said Ferguson in April. “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.”
