Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has revealed that he has turned down moves to Manchester United Chelsea and Real Madrid in the past 12 months.

The Poland international was instrumental in Jurgen Klopp's side reaching the Champions League final last season with the highlight of his campaign arguably being his four goals in Dortmund's 4-1 triumph over Real Madrid at the tournament's semi-final stage.

"The retirement of Sir Alex didn't affect my decision not to come to England. He spoke to me one year ago. It was not at a good time"

Lewandowski revealed that after the match he received a text message from then Madrid boss Jose Mourinho telling him that he would like the striker to join him wherever he ended up the following year which was ultimately Chelsea.

"Yes there was a situation like this with Jose Mourinho but I wouldn't like to talk about it much" he said.

"It was a private conversation so I don't want to make big things out of it. I can confirm I spoke to him.

"We spoke a few times before. I have his number in my phone. It is a huge compliment for me that a manager with such a big name is texting me this way.

"It is always nice to talk to him but it is not the first time I had such a situation."

Lewandowski also explained that the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Florentino Perez have also attempted to lure him away from Germany.
