Rumoured Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski has suggested he could leave Bayern Munich to play in the Premier League someday.
Lewandowski has been linked with a move away from Bayern over the course of the campaign.
Man United came close to signing the Polish striker when he was at Borussia Dortmund and Lewandowski has not ruled out moving to England.
“Maybe I’ll play in England or Spain one day,” he said.
“But, if I committed to pursuing my career in Munich, it’s because I considered it the ideal club at which to move up a level and to win more trophies.
“The fact that every season they reach at least the semi-finals of the Champions League impressed me. Apart from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, what other teams can brag about such consistency? I don’t know what my future will look like but at the moment I’m very happy at Bayern.”
Lewandowski is said to enjoy a good relationship with Jose Mourinho, who has been strongly linked with a move to replace Louis van Gaal as manager of United in the summer. After Lewandowski scored four goals against his Real Madrid side in the Champions League three years ago, Mourinho text the forward, saying: ’I want you to join me in any club I go to.’
Lewandowski said: “It is a huge compliment for me that a manager with such a big name is texting me this way.
“One year earlier I also spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson and that was definitely a great feeling.”
Lewandowski may well be flirting with a move away from Bayern but United have been used as a bargaining tool before in contract negotiations.
The likes of Thomas Muller and Dani Alves, too, have suggested that United are interested in them before signing new deals at Bayern and Barcelona, respectively. Thus, it’s important not to get too carried way with Lewandowski’s latest comments.
