Agent: Lewandowski unlikely to join Manchester United this summer

Robert Lewandowski's agent has revealed the Borussia Dortmund striker is unlikely to join Manchester United this summer.

The 24-year-old, who has scored 33 goals in 39 appearances this season, has a year remaining on his contract with the German club and has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford at the end of the campaign. Lewandowski's representative, Maik Barthel, insists the Poland international is keen to play in the Premier League but has played down a switch to England this summer.

"I can tell you only one thing - Robert is interested in the future coming to the Premier League," Barthel told 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."

Goal.com revealed last Tuesday that Bayern Munich has edged ahead of United in the race to sign Lewandowski, as Juventus is lining up a deal for Mario Gomez, which will create space in the Bundesliga champions' squad for the Pole.

When asked whether Lewandowski will join Bayern Munich, Barthel replied: "I don't know."

On Sunday, Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke conceded the club will discuss "decent offers" for Lewandowski but claimed the decision does not mean the forward will leave Jurgen Klopp's side.
