Last month the rumours kicked off again linking Robert Lewandowski with a move to Manchester United, there were reports that his exit was a done deal from outlets including The Mirror. It turned into an absolute farce and we covered how quotes, appearing to confirm a move, attributed to a Borussia Dortmund exec were nothing of the sort. It came as a bit of a relief when Sir Alex Ferguson told the club's official website that the rumours were "Absolute nonsense".
We assumed that would be the end of it but today The Telegraph said Ferguson was 'planning a £16 million summer move for Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski' in the summer. That appeared to come from left-field given the recent denial.
In Italy rumours have continued to link Lewandowski with a move to Juventus and Calciomercato did what they do best and contacted his agent today, asking him straight "Is it true that your client could sign with Juventus?"
Cezary Kucharski replied "Everything is possible. But I will not say anything at this time..."
That sounds promising for fans of the Italian club but perhaps Calciomercato have gone a bit too far with their headline of 'EXCLUSIVE - Lewandowski says yes to Juventus - Everything is possible!'
Juventus need a top striker much more than Manchester United do and hopefully Calciomercato are right to be excited, and Lewandowski will be more rumoured with Juventus now. The sentence in today's Telegraph has already started further stories about Manchester United interest and after the absolute circus in December, it's probably best for that can of worms to stay closed for now.
