Robert Lewandowski reveals he considered making the move to Manchester United back in 2012 when the Bayern München striker was playing for Dortmund.

The Polish international remembers having a conversation with the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, who was managing Manchester United at the time.

"I was speaking with him after two years at Dortmund and at that time I was really thinking about a move to Manchester United. Because of Ferguson and because of Manchester United," Lewandowski told The Guardian and continued:

"Borussia Dortmund said: ‘No, that’s that.’ That was the first time I was thinking about the move because if you get a phone call from Sir Alex Ferguson, for a young player it was something amazing. That was a special day for me."

Lewandowski stayed at Dortmund until 2014 when he joined Bayern.
