Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has revealed that he was close to joining Manchester United while at his former club, Borussia Dortmund.

The 32-year-old, who was recently voted the Best Men’s Player at the 2020 FIFA awards, enjoyed three prolific campaigns with Dortmund before making the switch to Bayern in 2014.

Lewandowski was a man in demand after bursting onto the scene under the then Jurgen Klopp, and the Poland international has now lifted the lid on talks with former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012.

“After my second year in Dortmund, I had a conversation with Sir Alex Ferguson. He wanted me to join Manchester.

“I was very interested at that time. I can even say I was ready. But Dortmund didn’t want to let me go. It didn’t upset me more than that because things were going well with Borussia.”

Lewandowski has become one of the world’s most prolific forwards during his time with Bayern, where he has found the back of the net 266 times in 307 appearances across all competitions, including 20 goals in the current campaign.

Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City and Juventus all wanted to sign the Polish international but at the end he ended up at Dortmund’s rivals Bayern Munchen where he won many trophies including Eufa Champions league last season.
