Robert Lewandowski has revealed that he held talks with Sir Alex Ferguson over a move to Manchester United in 2012, while he was still playing for Borussia Dortmund.

Lewandowski was a Dortmund player from 2010 to 2014 after which he joined Bayern Munich in 2014 on a free transfer.

“After my second year in Dortmund, I had a conversation with Sir Alex Ferguson,” Lewandowski told France Football. “He wanted me to come to Manchester.

“I was very interested. 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.”
