Ahead of facing England with his national team this week, Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has played down rumours he could be on his way to Manchester United.
As ESPN reports, Sir Alex Ferguson was in the stands to watch the Borussia Dortmund man in Champions League action against Manchester City earlier this month.
It is well known that the Red Devils boss would be keen on signing the striker too, but the man himself is fully focused on the Bundesliga and Dortmund.
Speaking about the United interest, he said: “I didn’t even know Sir Alex Ferguson was in the stands against City but it wouldn’t influence me at all.”
“I haven’t got plans to change clubs. I have a contract with Borussia and I focus on that.”
It seems like the speculation is unlikely to die down though, especially with Lewandowski admitting that he would like to play in England ‘one day’.
Whether Ferguson makes a move in January or not will be interesting to see, as will the response from Dortmund and Lewandowski.
One thing for sure is that he is one of the most in-demand players in Europe right now and he will hope to show his best form against England on Tuesday.
Poland host the Three Lions in a 2014 World Cup qualifier and who knows, with Lewandowski lining up against English defenders, it could be a sign of things to come.
