Reports in Italy claim that Juventus are planning to rival Manchester United for Borussia Dortmund frontman Robert Lewandowski.

Italian champions Juventus are reportedly ready to challenge Manchester United for the signature of Robert Lewandowski.

Premier League side United are said to be keen admirers of the Borussia Dortmund frontman, who is expected to start against England for Poland during a World Cup qualifier next week.

Recent speculation had claimed that United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was even willing to part with Javier Hernandez and Nani in order to fund the deal.

However, Juve have now entered the race and are in advanced talks with the 24-year-old's agent, according to Tuttosport.

The centre-forward scored 22 goals to help Dortmund clinch the German title last season.
