Lewandowski reveals Ferguson contact, Premier League desire, denies Bayern agreement

Dennis Grombkowski

Robert Lewandowski has denied that he has agreed a move to Bayern Munich, and has also claimed that he spoke with Alex Ferguson and would like to play in the Premier League, reigniting talks of a move to Manchester United.

Robert Lewandowski has rejected claims that he has agreed to sign for Bayern Munich at the end of the season when his contract expires, and has also revealed that he was in contact with Alex Ferguson.

UEFA rules stipulate that formal agreements can only be put in place six months before a contract expires, and Lewandowski said to the Telegraph: "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."

"It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson, but we didn't mention the transfer. One day I would like to play in Premier League. It would be a great experience."

Lewandowski's comments may reignite talk of a United transfer, but even if Wayne Rooney were to leave, United still have Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck, with Will Keane and Angelo Henriquez looking to break into the first team. With other areas of the squad in far greater need of the money spent on reinforcements, it's hard to see United putting up enough money to compete with other clubs for his signature if a bidding war happens, as seems likely.
