English Preemiership champions Manchester United have intensified efforts to land Polish wonder striker Robert Lewandowski who destroyed Real Madrid of Spain in the first leg semi-final of the European Champions League last week Wednesday.

Legendary Manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been mandated by the club’s owners, the Glazer family, to “push the boat out” to secure Lewandowski’s signature this summer, according to reports from England.

Ferguson was quted as saying: “Having spoken with the Glazer family, I think there is every intention of wanting to kick on. I don’t think we need a big rebuilding. I don’t think we need to rebuild at all, just possibly two players. It depends. If a player came along that we felt met our criteria, we would push the boat out and get the player in, irrespective of how many players we have.”

Lewandowski has emerged as one of the most sought after players in Europe after scoring four goals during Borussia Dortmund’s 4-1 Champions League semi-final victory against Real Madrid on on April 24.

According to one report, “United’s interest dates back to last summer, however, and the newly-crowned Premier League champions have been made aware of the 24-year-old’s desire to move to Old Trafford, despite claims in Germany – denied by Bayern – that he has agreed to move to the Allianz Arena.

“Although he has just one-year remaining on his Dortmund contract, Lewandowski’s heroics against Real are likely to have raised his value, but Ferguson insists that the Glazers are determined to bankroll his attempts to add the ‘two players’ he believes are required to move United forward.”
