Manchester United remain interested in Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski, according to a recent report from ESPN FC. Though it is unclear whether United will sign the Polish international, it is clear that Lewandowski would bring a multi-faceted and potent threat to the team's attack—even if he would not fill the most pressing need in United's squad.
Already a sought-after transfer target, Lewandowski secured his status as an elite European striker with his famous four-goal performance against Real Madrid in this season's UEFA Champions League semifinals. In 12 Champions League appearances this season, Lewandowski has scored 10 goals, second only to Real's Cristiano Ronaldo. In 31 Bundesliga appearances this season, he scored 24 times.
In April, the agent of Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes claimed Bayern had a deal in place to sign Lewandowski this summer (Goal.com via Yahoo! Sports). Lewandowski's contract with Dortmund runs one more season, and United remain interested despite the reports linking him to Bayern.
According to the ESPN FC article, United would increase their efforts to sign Lewandowski if Wayne Rooney decides to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer. Transfermarkt estimates Lewandowski's market value at €28 million.
