The Poland international, who has scored nine goals in 15 Bundesliga game this season, has long been linked with Manchester United as well as a host of Europe's heavyweight clubs.

And there is a suggestion Lewandowski wants to move after showing no great rush to sign an extension to the remaining one-and-a-half years on his current Dortmund contract.

The defending German champions, who are currently hanging on to third place in the table, are therefore concerned they could lose the 24-year-old in a cut-price deal either at the end of the season to sell sooner rather than later.

Club executive Hans-Joachim Watzke told Bild: "As often as I am talking to Robert, I do not have the impression he wants to leave us.

"We will have to make decisions in this case at the end of the season. We may decide on economical factors.

"Would it be best to cash in a big fee? Or would it be even better to keep Lewandowski to ensure we are more likely to qualify for the Champions League with him in our side, as this would guarantee us big income?

"It's a decision we will have to take. It's our decision. It's not something to be decided by others."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
