Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed offers from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed offers from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Lewandowski revealed that after the match he received a text message from then Real 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 have also attempted to lure him away from Germany.

"One year earlier I also spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson and that was definitely a great feeling," the forward admitted.

"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.

"I knew I still had something big to achieve in Dortmund before I joined a bigger club."
