The name Robert Lewandowski has been widespread in the Football Transfer Tavern ever since that display of brilliant footballing ability that put Real Madrid to the sword during the Champions League semi-final first-leg.
The Borussia Dortmund man has since been rumoured to be on the move this summer with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United all interested.
Today it’s the turn of Manchester City to be linked for a move for the Polish striker with The Sun reporting that new boss Manuel Pellegrini is ready to challenge city rivals United for the £22.5 million-rated forward.
City would certainly be able to pay the 24-year-old the wages he so desires but it is thought that he would prefer to stay in Germany and join up with former Dortmund team-mate Mario Gotze at Bayern Munich.
However Dortmund has insisted that they will not sell the striker to their fierce rivals which opens up the possibility of a switch to England with David Moyes also believed to be very interested in the marksman.
