Robert Lewandowski has claimed that he has not agreed to join Bayern Munich just yet and is a fan of the Premier League, re-opening the possibility of a move to Manchester United.
The 25-year-old admitted that he talked to Sir Alex Ferguson last year but insisted a potential transfer was not discussed with the Scot.
Lewandowski’s move to Bayern Munich looked settled last month but he has now placed doubt over whether it will materialise.
“I will be able to sign a contract in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern,” he told the Daily Telegraph
“It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had the opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson (last year), but we didn’t mention the transfer.
“One day I would like to play in the Premier League. It would be a great experience.”
Lewandowki’s statement is a marked change of stance from only a few weeks ago where he confirmed that he had signed a pre-contract agreement with Bayern Munich.
Either he would prefer a move to the Premier League or Lewandowski is trying to scare Bayern Munich into giving him a more lucrative signing on fee to secure his services.
He can leave Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer in the summer and Lewandowski’s decision to speak about Ferguson, effectively calling out United again, is an interesting move.
Dortmund would also likely prefer to sell Lewandowski to a foreign club in January for a small fee so that they wouldn’t strengthen their domestic rivals.
With nine goals in nine appearances this season, he has continued his devastating form but given that Javier Hernandez can’t get any game time at United, bringing Lewandowski to Old Trafford would only limit his game time even more.
