Man Utd confident negotiating affordable Lewandowski fee

Manchester United are happy to wait until the summer to close a deal for Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.

United are prepared to wait until the end of the season before making a renewed bid for Dortmund forward Lewandowski after the German champions placed a €30 million (£24.3million) valuation on the Poland international, says the Telegraph.

Lewandowski has told Dortmund that he has no intention of signing a new contract to replace his deal which expires in June 2014.

The Pole has also made it clear that he wants to play in the Premier League and favours a move to United, who will face competition from Arsenal, Chelsea and Juventus should Dortmund choose to sell at the end of the season.

Despite Dortmund's valuation of the former Lech Poznan striker, United are confident that Lewandowski's diminishing contract will enable them to secure him for a figure similar to the £17 million paid for Shinji Kagawa this summer.
