All eyes may have been on Robert Lewandowski after Borussia Dortmund’s fantastic performance in the Champions League yet we here at the Football Transfer Tavern are more interested in the article from Metro which claims that Manchester United could be after the Pole’s team-mate Sven Bender as well.
Not only are United considering a move for the player but their bitter rivals and second placed Premier League club Manchester City are also looking at the player who has attracted more than a couple of glances after his performances this season.
Dortmund of course are facing a battle to keep hold of their top stars and have already seen Mario Gotze agree to join Bayern Munich next season. With the future of four goal Robert Lewandowski up in the air it seems that Bender is now the latest name on the list of players who could depart the Westfalenstadion this summer.
The midfielder had a sensational performance against Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid and the 24-year-old can look forward to being chased by a host of clubs as the summer approaches. All of this of course will go down like a lead balloon with Jurgen Klopp and the Dortmund fans who are determined to hang on to their best players and move forward with their energetic brand of football.
Is Bender headed to either United or City or simply trash paper talk? Rate this rumour below.
