The Polish striker has admitted that Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all tried to persuade him to join them over the past 12 months.
Roberto Lewandowski has revealed that Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all made attempts at signing him in the past 12 months, Sky Sports reports.
The Polish striker only has one year remaining on his contract with Borussia Dortmund and is set to move to Bayern Munich next summer on a free transfer.
The Polish international is regarded as one of the top strikers in Europe at the moment following several impressive displays in last seasons Champions League, especially in Dortmund’s 4-1 victory over Real Madrid in the semi-final.
Lewandowski admits that then Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho, texted him after the match to tell him that he wanted Lewandowski at whatever club he ended up at, which turned out to be Chelsea.
“Yes, there was a situation like this with Jose Mourinho but I wouldn’t like to talk about it much,” he said.
“It was a private conversation so I don’t want to make big things out of it. I can confirm I spoke to him”.
Lewandowski also says that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez also spoke to him after the Champions League semi-final and he also admits that Sir Alex Ferguson spoke to him about moving to Manchester United last summer.
“It was in the office near the dressing room at the Bernabeu straight after the match. We spoke to each other briefly and…OK, let’s just say we spoke”.
“One year earlier I also spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson and that was definitely a great feeling,” the forward admitted.
“The retirement of Sir Alex didn’t affect my decision not to come to England. He spoke to me one year ago. It was not at a good time”.
