Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he is interested in signing Robert Lewandowski but expects a battle for his signature.
Lewandowski has been tipped to depart Champions League semi-finalists Borussia Dortmund in the summer as he has yet to sign a new deal and is out of contract in 2014.
United have been heavily linked with the Polish international, who will cost a reported £18million, and Ferguson admits he is interested in the highly-rated striker.
However, the Old Trafford boss believes German giants Bayern Munich are leading the race for Lewandowski and played down his chances of landing the forward in the summer.
"Yeah, but Bayern Munich are strong with that too," said Ferguson on his interest in Lewandowski. "We just have to wait and see where we are in terms of if we win the league. Then it may be different."
Ferguson feels he has enough attacking talent in his side and would struggle to fit another forward into his squad, with Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez all battling for a starting role, although he would not rule out a marquee signing in the transfer window.
"Big signings? You are normally talking about forwards but it's complicated enough as it is with the forwards I've got," he said.
