Lewandowski still hopeful of Premier League move
Poland striker Robert Lewandowski still holds out hope of playing in the Premier League, the Daily Telegraph has reported, and revealed he has not committed to leaving Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich next summer.
Lewandowski will line up for Poland against England at Wembley on Tuesday and the newspaper rates him as one of the most dangerous strikers in Europe, citing his 10 goals as Dortmund reached last season’s Champions League final, where they were beaten by Bayern. Lewandowski was understood to have caught the eye of Manchester United and Manchester City, but no move to England was forthcoming amid intense interest from Bayern.
It was thought Lewandowski had agreed a move to Munich but he insisted that was not the case, although with his Dortmund contract due to expire in the summer, he is likely to be on the move. “I will be able to sign a contract [with any club] in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern,” Lewandowski said.
“It was a misunderstanding,” he added. “It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson [last year], but we didn’t mention the transfer. One day I would like to play in Premier League. It would be a great experience.”
Lewandowski also confirmed he was close to joining Blackburn Rovers before he moved to Dortmund, but rejected the transfer in favour of switching to the Bundesliga. He has gone on to score 84 goals in 148 games for Dortmund, as well as 18 in 56 for Poland.
