Lewandowski has firmly established himself as an integral part of the Dortmund set up since he joined the club in 2010, and the 24-year-old's sterling performances for Die Borussen have caught the eye of several major clubs including the likes of United, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
However, according to German publication Bild, the Red Devils have emerged triumphant in the battle to land the Polish international, with reports suggesting that the former Lech Poznan player had accepted an offer of £20.5million in wages to join last season's Premier League runners-up come the end of the season.
Dortmund will reportedly pocket £18million from the sale of Lewandowski, whose contract with the current reigning Bundesliga champions expires at the end of next season.
Ferguson's decision to buy yet another striker may seem baffling to some given how the Red Devils already have one of the most potent strikeforce in the world, with Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney leading the line excellently at the moment, but it is believed the wily Scotsman plans to pair Lewandowski up front with Van Persie while deploying Rooney in a more withdrawn role in order to provide a creative thrust from deep.
Lewandowski's signing would also see a renewal of the potent partnership he and Shinji Kagawa had formed at Dortmund, and Ferguson would undoubtedly hope the two can combine to great effect once again for the Red Devils.
The 2011 Polish Player of the Year has made a total of 113 appearances for Dortmund so far, scoring a respectable 53 goals in the process.
