Bayern striker, Robert Lewandowski, has shown his interest to join the Premier League giants Manchester United.

Early in 2012, Lewandowski was in talks with the then United manager Sir Alex Ferguson regarding a switch to which he had agreed, however, it was blocked by his former club Borussia Dortmund.

During an interview with France Football, the 32-year-old revealed he was interested in coming to Old Trafford.

‘After my second year in Dortmund, I had a conversation with Sir Alex Ferguson,” Lewandowski said.

“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.”

With Bayern, Lewandowski has won six Bundesliga titles and last season also won the Champions League title as well.

Meanwhile he open up admiring Alessandro Del Piero and Thierry Henry while growing up.

“The ones I admired were Alessandro Del Piero and Thierry Henry, even Roberto Baggio, whom I saw playing when I was very young. But, as much as the big names, what made me dream were the big stadiums and their atmospheres,” he said.
