MANCHESTER CITY are reviving their interest in Robert Lewandowski to replace Carlos Tevez.

And City could tempt Borussia Dortmund to sell by offering Edin Dzeko in a cash-plus-player deal.

City officials sounded out Lewandowski’s agents about a £25million move to the Etihad Stadium towards the end of last season but were told his mind was made up to join Bayern Munich. Manchester United were given the same message.

But Dortmund are refusing to sell Poland striker Lewandowski to Bayern having already lost midfielder Mario Gotze to their main rivals in the Bundesliga.

With Lewandowski threatening to run down the final year on his contract and leave for free next summer, City are hoping Dortmund will decide to cash in now, and they will be able to tempt the player to come to England by offering the same £200,000-a-week contract that Tevez was on.

Tevez is expected to sign a three-year contract with Juventus today after arriving in Turin for his medical.
