thumbnail Hello,

According to his representative, the Poland international is not satisfied with BVB's offer to extend his contract, while the player has caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson

Manchester United are interested in signing Poland striker Robert Lewandowski from Dortmund, the player's agent has confirmed.

A substitute for most of the 2010-11 campaign, the ex-Lech Poznan man had a break-out year, with 30 goals in 47 games this season as BVB won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal.

Dortmund are keen to extend his contract past its current expiration in 2014, but his agent has announced that the club's terms are insufficient.

"The offer from Dortmund is not enough. I can confirm interest from Manchester United in Robert," agent Maik Barthel told Bild.

Sir Alex Ferguson was in attendance during Saturday's DFB-Pokal final between Dortmund and Bayern, lending credence to reports of Manchester United's interest in Shinji Kagawa, who scored and made an assist in Dortmund's 5-2 win. But Ferguson was apparently interested as well in Lewandowski, who netted a hat-trick in that match.

However, although he admitted that Kagawa will be difficult to retain, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has vowed to retain Lewandowski under any circumstances.

"Other players [aside from Kagawa] we would not sell for all the money in the world," he said.
