Juventus are closing in on long time Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski, reported TalkSPORT. The Borussia Dortmund star has been watched by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson a few times now, but the Italian champions are said to be in advanced negotiations to secure his signature.
Lewandowski was awarded the Bundesliga Player of the Year for his haul of 30 league goals last season as Borussia Dortmund clinched an impressive league and cup double. Interest in the player had cooled following Polandâ€™s poor showing at the Euros, but the player has showcased his talents once again, netting 4 goals in 10 games this season.
The Pole is an excellent option for Ferguson owing to his ability to lead the line on his own, and will offer competition to summer signing Robin van Persie. On the other hand, Juve are in dire need of a striker following the summer departure of veteran Alessandro Del Piero. The Bianconeri have only signed an out-of-form Nicklas Bendtner on loan and they will be looking to add Lewandowski to supplement their attacking unit.
The player will have only a year on his contract next summer and although Dortmund will want to retain their star striker, United or Juve could certainly lure the player away from Germany with their financial stature.
