Manchester United have been warned off making a fresh bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.
United were heavily linked with a move for the Polish international during the summer and did hold talks with the German outfit about a possible deal.
However, the Bundesliga giants are in no rush to sell the 24-year-old and only a mega money offer would give them food for thought concerning a player that has been Sir Alex Ferguson's radar for the past 12 months,
It's understood Dortmund are holding out for fee in the region of £25m for the forward, who still has another two years to run on his existing contract.
Ferguson and his assistant Mike Phelan were in attendance at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night to see Lewandowski in the flesh in their 1-1 draw with United's neighbours Manchester City, and reports are suggesting an offer could be lodged for his services in January.
A Dortmund source told the Daily Star: "If United want him, they will have to spend big because he is so valuable to Dortmund. He is one of the best strikers in Europe now and won't come cheap."
