Poland's Lewandowski mum on Man Utd switch

Dortmund star scored in Euro opener against Greece

Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski shrugged off questions linking him with Manchester United after scoring in Poland's 1-1 draw with Greece in the opening match of the European championships in Warsaw.

Lewandowski scored Poland's goal in the first half, only to see Greek substitute Dimitris Salpigidis equalise after the break in a match which saw both teams finish the game with 10 men.

The Polish striker, however, refused to confirm Poland coach Franciszek Smuda's suggestion earlier this week that he would be playing at Old Trafford next season.

Lewandowski, 23, said: "I am so happy to score this goal in the opening match. But I'm not going to concentrate on these issues (joining United). Euro 2012 is the priority. I'm totally focused on the national team."

It had been reported in the British press that United has agreed to a £16 million deal for Lewandowski and will complete the deal after Euro 2012.

Lewandowski would be the second summer signing at the Old Trafford after Shinji Kagawa.

According to The Sun, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson watched the Dortmund hitman in action several times last season and reportedly wants him to link up with Wayne Rooney.
