Euro 2012: Lewandowski dodges Manchester United questions

Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has refused to answer questions about a possible move to Manchester United.

The Borussia Dortmund striker scored as Poland drew 1-1 with Greece in the opening match of Euro 2012 on Friday.

Before the match, Poland coach Franciszek Smuda said Lewandowski would be playing at Old Trafford next season.

But the player refused to comment after the game in Warsaw. "I'm not going to concentrate on these issues. Euro 2012 is the priority," he said.

United watched Lewandowski several times last season.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his assistant Mike Phelan were present as the 23-year-old scored a hat-trick to help Dortmund thrash Bayern Munich 5-2 in the German cup final last month, although the pair were also there to look at Shinji Kagawa, who has since moved to Old Trafford.

Lewandowski, who scored 22 Bundesliga goals last season, has two years left on his contract and Dortmund are determined to hang on to him.

The German champions have identified Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko as their preferred replacement should Lewandowski leave the club, however.

For now Lewandowski says he is focused on helping Poland qualify from Group A. The co-hosts missed several first-half chances during the 1-1 draw with Greece.

"I did everything to take the ball. I was just millimetres away but this is football and I hope next time I score," Lewandowski said.

"I regret that we did not take more of our chances in the first half. It could have been two or three but we still have a positive attitude."
