Robert Lewandowski is ready to snub Manchester United and join Bayern Munich instead.
Alex Ferguson admits he would love to sign the Borussia Dortmund striker this summer.
But the £25million-rated Polish sensation is on the brink of sealing a stunning £160,000-a-week five-year deal at Bayern.
Lewandowski’s reputation soared after he smashed all four goals in Dortmund’s 4-1 win over Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg.
It sparked a scramble for the 24-year-old — who has just a year left on his Dortmund deal.
United believed they were in the driving seat when Bayern signed Lewandowski’s team-mate Mario Goetze.
But the striker has also set his heart on joining the team who dumped Barca out of Europe.
