Poland national team coach Franciszek Smuda claims his star striker, Robert Lewandowski, is on his way to Manchester United this summer.
Speaking ahead of Poland's Euro 2012 opener against Greece on Friday, Smuda says a number of his other key men are destined to be on the move once the transfer window re-opens.
His comments are bad news for Borussia Dortmund, with the reigning Bundesliga champions seemingly set to part with three key figures.

They have already seen Shinji Kagawa leave the club for Manchester United, and Lewandowski may be about to follow his lead.
The 23-year-old striker enjoyed a standout 2011/12 campaign at club level, netting 22 times as Dortmund defended the German title, and Smuda claims his exploits have persuaded United to spend big on his services.
He has also announced that Poland skipper Jakub Blaszczykowski is on his way to the Premier League and that highly-rated full-back Lukasz Piszczek will join Spanish giants Real Madrid.
"Lewy is going to Manchester United, Kuba also somewhere in England, Piszczek to Real," said Smuda.
"They have a goal and they want to grow. I base the squad on them."
