Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has committed his immediate future to the German club but has given hope to Premier League clubs with regards to a future move to England. The Polish striker has been in tremendous form this campaign and has attracted interest from clubs across Europe.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward has made it clear that winning trophies regularly was one of the reasons he chose to move to the Bavarian giants. He has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Real Madrid in the past but has insisted that he is happy at the moment in Germany.
The 27-year-old forward has been prolific this season and has notched up 38 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions. But his most memorable moment came when he scored five goals in the space of nine minutes against Wolfsburg, which not only earned him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records but also plaudits from the entire football fraternity.
Jose Mourinho was quick to applaud him for his feat, while the Portuguese manager is also said to have made an offer to Lewandowksi to play for him in the future This could give United an edge in landing him, as the Portuguese manager has been widely tipped to take over from Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford next season.
"Maybe I'll play in England or Spain one day. 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," Lewandowski said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
"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," he explained.
"I want you to join me in any club I go to," was Mourinho's invitation to the player after his five-goal blitz.
"It is a huge compliment for me that a manager [Mourinho] with such a big name is texting me this way," the Poland international forward added. "One year earlier I also spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson and that was definitely a great feeling."
